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!).
