Expert review of The Press Room

Less about journalism than about epicurean-ism.

Part of the new wave of eateries opening in what until recently was a slightly bleak part of town, Press Room (PR to its intimates) provides a highly amenable dining option.

Food and drink: 

Here's a menu that's fun to browse, not least for its Baroque layout; oysters, vegetarian, salads, mains and dishes created especially for sharing are all available. That 10 Champagnes are on offer gives you some idea of the cellar.

Recommended dishes: 

Everyone waxes lyrical about the French Fries.

Ambience: 

Something of the atmosphere of a French brasserie lends itself here. A lot of nearby residents treat PR as an extension of their dining room. 

Service: 

Staff are crisp and smart and clearly enjoying themselves.

Location: 

Hollywood Road once meant just antiques - but the food side is catching on as the nightlife/entertainment areas of SoHo (South of Hollywood Road) and BoHo (Below Hollywood Road) expand.

Price advice: 

It's HK$350 a head or so, assuming you don't make a pig of yourself (bottle of Dom Perignon Rose HK$4,350!).
