    <<18th April 2019 – Hong Kong >> On the evenings of 28 and 29 May, one-Michelin-starred Relais & Châteaux member Tate Dining Room will host a highly anticipated culinary collaboration between its own chef Vicky Lau and guest chef Junghyun ‘JP’ Park of Atomix. The 8-course four-hands dinner menu will be priced at HK$1,980+10% per guest, with the option of wine or cocktail pairing at an additional HK$600. This is also their first visit to Hong Kong.

    Praised by critics as New York City’s hottest new restaurant, Atomix is the innovative one-Michelin-starred Korean fine dining concept by husband-and-wife team Junghyun and Ellia Park. Successfully fusing traditions from their native Korean roots with a progressive vision, the couple launched Atomix in the heart of NoMad as a follow-up project to their first-born restaurant, Atoboy. Not even a full year into its opening, Atomix has been awarded one Michelin star amid glowing reviews from the nation’s top publications. Among its many accolades include New York Times’ Top 10 New Restaurants 2018, Esquire’s Best New Restaurants in America, OAD’s Top 100 North American Restaurants 2019 as a new entry at #14 and last but not least, Chef Junghyun Park was recently crowned by Food & Wine as the Best New Chef 2019. The continually evolving 10-course tasting menu offered at Atomix demonstrates Chef Junghyun’s impressive breadth of culinary skill and technique, providing guests with fresh multidimensional perspectives on Korean culture.

    Already loved by New Yorkers, Atomix is now set to win over hearts in Hong Kong during its two-night collaboration with Chef Vicky Lau of Tate Dining Room this May. The joining of Chef Vicky’s Chinese-French edible stories with Chef Junghyun’s modern Korean gastronomy is sure to be one of the most exciting culinary unions of the year.

    Junghyun Park has been recognized and celebrated for modernizing traditional Korean fare. Prior to opening Atoboy (which was named one of 2017’s top restaurants by the New York Times restaurant critic Pete Wells), JP worked in many of the world’s best restaurants, including the Michelin- starred Cutler & Co. (Melbourne), The Ledbury (London), Jungsik dang (Seoul), and Jungsik restaurant in New York City. At Jungsik NYC, JP led the American team as chef de cuisine, earning the restaurant two Michelin stars and high critical acclaim. In 2016, JP and his wife, Ellia opened casual progressive Korean restaurant Atoboy, with a focus on banchan and where Korean flavors are presented using French techniques. In May 2018, the couple opened their second brainchild, Atomix, highlighting a refined chef’s table tasting menu and bar program led by Jesse Vida (BlackTail) and Samantha Casuga (Dead Rabbit).
