Private Event Space: Quarry Bay is boasting a fancy new space called Mr & Mrs Fox, owned by the mighty Swire Hotels group. The three-story bar slash restaurant slash private function venue is situated conveniently amongst the Island East office complex, drawing the work crowd for lunch and dinner.
Look & Feel: Dark, rustic and expansive—these three adjectives sum up the Mr & Mrs Fox experience. The ground floor bar is full of high tables for casual drinking and nibbling; the first floor is for intimate sit-down dining, and the top floor room and terrace is reserved for private bookings of up to 24 guests.
Meet the Chef: Chef Joey Sergentakis used to helm the kitchen at posh Cafe Gray Deluxe in The Upper House.
On the Menu: The menu depends on which floor you’re on. Playful Mrs Fox bar offers oysters, shellfish platters and light bites, while no-nonsense Mr Fox restaurant offers steaks and hearty seafood mains.
Jeng: The menu will evolve as MMF hones in on favorites and weeds out the rest, but for now you can’t go wrong with the generous charcuterie platters ($235 for five ppl), and the impressively priced bone-in strip ($285) and ribeye steaks ($410).
Not So Jeng: The sheer number of choices at MMF can get quite overwhelming, as the establishment seems gung ho on covering all bases. Hope you’re not indecisive!
Great For: MMF’s beautiful top floor looks like a promising space for private functions and celebrations. And if you’re a Quarry Bay office bee, now there’s a legit new lunch and post-work option.
FYI: The name Mr & Mrs Fox was inspired by a children’s book series (“Fantastic Mr. Fox”, anyone?), according to Swire Restaurant’s GM Willem van Emden who bestowed the name.
