Celeb Chef Alert: Bread Street Kitchen & Bar is Gordon Ramsay’s first foray in Hong Kong, which followed hot on the heels of Jamie Oliver’s debut a few years ago. The LKF location brings Centralites a spacious setting, attentive service and modern British grub.

Look & Feel: Tucked away in the LKF Hotels stairwell, connecting Wyndham Street and Lan Kwai Fong, BSK is home to a surprising large footprint where enormous windows let in lots of natural light, and there’s plenty of space to go around. The design is bang on trend. Yep, you guessed it: industrial chic digs mean there’s some vintage touches, black and white tile floors, exposed piping and shiny metal accents.

On the Menu: Much like its London counterpart, the resto serves up a modern British menu featuring classic dishes like sticky toffee pudding, right alongside fresh salads, burgers, ribs, steaks, pork chops and seafood.

Service: Pretty on point — our server flawlessly rattled off recommendations, wine suggestions and filled our water like it was her job.

Jeng: We tried the shepherd’s pie ($208), sea bass carpaccio ($148) and honey-glazed beef short ribs ($198) and loved them all. For dessert, the Eton mess ($88) was also a winner — traditional, sure, but you can’t go wrong with this crunchy, creamy combination of strawberries, Chantilly cream and meringue.

Not So Jeng: Several of the desserts are simply way too sweet and lack complexity. The restaurant markets itself as “casual” dining, but there is nothing casual about a $250 lunch.

Great For: Group dinners, fancy lunches.

FYI: Gordon Ramsay opened his second location in Hong Kong, London House, in September 2015.
