<<26th March 2020 – Hong Kong>> Le Comptoir’s 2 Michelin-starred French restaurant ÉCRITURE launches a new weekend lunch menu with a more casual approach starting from 4th April. Priced at HK$780+10% per guest with an optional 3-glass wine-pairing for an additional HK$280, the 6-course lunch features the finest French seasonal produce. Known for its innovative gastronomy, Écriture provides the city’s most prestigious dining destination for classical French cuisine with modern twists.
Introducing a new Weekend Lunch Experience at Ecriture
Executive Chef Maxime Gilbert has curated a six-course spring menu, introducing to the city’s gourmands an exquisite new weekend lunch experience. The menu begins with a spread of Écriture’s signature house-cured bites such as bonito, cuttlefish, grouse, and ikura, a whetting appetiser for the next savoury course of Brittany red mullet tartare with sugar snap peas and pickled cucumber.
Delight in a fricassee of French organic free-range eggs with green asparagus from Pertuis and morels in traditional French yellow wine sauce, and a rich, homemade agnolotti filled with spinach and ricotta. The meat course is a special from Aveyron in the south of France, a roasted leg of tender Blanc de Blanc lamb served with its confit neck and Charlotte potato gratin.
Weekend lunch at Écriture ends with an assortment of delicate desserts, such as Chef Maxime’s interpretation of Kouign-Amann, a sweet and flaky layered pastry native to Brittany, and a chocolate and caramel tart with seasonal fruits.

Located on the penthouse floor of Hong Kong’s new cultural hotspot H Queen’s, Hong Kong hospitality group Le Comptoir presents ÉCRITURE, a space in which French cuisine is elevated to new heights by uniting it with exceptional Japanese produce to explore the endless possibilities that occur when Western craftsmanship meets Eastern philosophies. The East and the West have long held a mutual fascination and respect for one another, and at ÉCRITURE this comes together not only on the plate, but also in the effortlessly understated interiors. The restaurant takes its name from a series of paintings by Korean artist Park Seo-Bo – a work from which hangs in the private dining room, injecting a bold splash of red into a design scheme that celebrates the untold harmony found in contrasts and oppositions.
About Le Comptoir
Le Comptoir was founded in early 2013 with the goal of redefining what a fine dining experience can be. The name takes inspiration from the vibrant, convivial bar counter found in most French bistros and brasseries, where friends meet up to enjoy the good life.
True to its motto ‘fine dining redefined’, Le Comptoir is transforming Hong Kong’s already dynamic F&B scene one restaurant at a time. With each completely original concept, the team at Le Comptoir places great importance in the power of dynamic, art-centric interior design to create a unique vibe within each venue. Uncompromising in their vision, each Le Comptoir property is a feast for the senses, an ode to spectacular design and beautiful art, and takes a no-detail-spared approach in creating memorable experiences for diners at every turn.
The art of fine hospitality is at the core of every restaurant by Le Comptoir. By employing Michelin and 5-Star hotel standards throughout, each venue takes pride in providing exquisite cuisine and faultless service to diners, no matter the setting.
This dedication to fine hospitality runs true in every Le Comptoir property, from the traditional omakase experience at UMI , to Silencio, Hong Kong’s only contemporary izakaya featuring live jazz music, and sustainable cuisine inspired by the island of Bali at Poem.
