<<21st December, 2018 – Hong Kong>> Le Comptoir’s newly awarded 2 Michelin Star restaurant, ÉCRITURE will kick off the New Year with a seasonal Furs & Feathers menu by Executive Chef Maxime Gilbert. From 1-31 January, the French fine dining restaurant will launch a limited time menu focusing on freshly hunted game from around the world. Known for its innovative gastronomy, Écriture provides the city’s most prestigious destination for dining on the season’s finest and rarest wild game.
Furs & Feathers – Wild Game Menu by Chef Maxime Gilbert
With hunting season in full swing, Chef Maxime and his team have prepared a series of exquisite game dishes for the Furs & Feathers menu available exclusively throughout January 2019. The menu begins with Grouse, a small, plump and tender dark-meat game bird, followed by the delicate Partridge, another type of game bird with a light, finely textured meat. The young female Doe is known for its slightly leaner and gently flavoured meat, and the Teal wild duck for its succulence. The Hare’s red meat is distinctly gamey in flavour, appealing to the most ardent of wild game lovers. Complement the unique flavours of the meats with decadent shavings of in-season Italian White Alba Truffles, and the sweet and fleshy Japanese winter Persimmon. Guests can opt between 4-courses priced at HK$1,688 per head and 7-courses priced at HK$2,088 per head.

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 acclaimed and art-centric modern French restaurant Bibo, A Relais & Châteaux member, to contemporary Balinese haven TRi and spectacular MICHELIN-starred seafood fine dining experience at The Ocean.
