Radical Chic


Cuisine: Innovative Italian Cuisine | Chef(s): Andrea Zamboni | Best For: Views & Truffle


Radical Chic is a modern Italian restaurant situated high in the clouds on the 101st floor of International Commerce Centre. Designed to mimic a museum art gallery, this 50-seater restaurant excels by bringing artistry to the plate complemented by its selection of top-notch ingredients. Gourmands can choose from a six-course menu or the signature a la carte menu, with Italian chef Andrea Zamboni bringing an innovative, or shall we say, "radical" fine-dining experience punctuated with recipes inspired by his childhood.

Odyssée


Cuisine: Contemporary French Cuisine | Best For: Date Night


Also sitting high up in the upper atmosphere of Hong Kong's 101st floor of the International Commerce Centre, Odyssée serves contemporary French fine dining with sweeping views of the skyline. The restaurant offers "mix and match" menus with signature dishes like the Miyazaki A4 sirloin and the Brittany monkfish. We'd also like to highlight the exquisite Odyssée Experience set which is available in eight-course or nine-course options, with crowd favourites like the blue lobster with ravioli and the Hokkaido sea urchin topped with gold caviar – need we say more? To top off such a premium experience, we suggest adding on the wine pairing.

The chefs announce orders in Japanese while delivering the freshly grilled A4 Wagyu beef straight to your plate on a wooden paddle. The experience is as lively as it sounds!
