HONG KONG'S FIRST SAIGONESE BRASSERIE TO DEBUT AUTUMN 2015
(Hong Kong, October 27, 2015) Opening in November 2015, Le Garçon Saigon is the newest restaurant by Black Sheep Restaurants. The tenth venture by the renowned hospitality group, Le Garçon Saigon celebrates the vibrant and fresh flavors of Saigonese cuisine in a bright and welcoming space that evokes the sophistication of a chic Parisian brasserie. Conveniently located in the charming Star Street neighborhood, the establishment is the perfect addition to the area's quaint boutiques and eateries.
A concept created by Black Sheep Restaurant Co-Founders Christopher Mark and Syed Asim Hussain, Le Garçon Saigon is simultaneously inspired by traditional Vietnamese flavors and the restaurateurs’ incessant passion for innovation. "We want to bring Hong Kongers the Vietnamese flavors we crave through authentic, regional dishes that have been enhanced by premium ingredients and modern cooking techniques," says Mark. Guests can expect Vietnam's typically complex and fragrant flavours elevated with exceptional proteins in dishes such as Wagyu Beef Tri-tip 'Bo Liu' and Kurobuta Pork 'Thit Nuong'.
Helmed by Chef Bao La of Ho Lee Fook fame, his story is a charming mother-son tale. Growing up in his parents' Vietnamese restaurant in Australia, family recipes and cooking methods formed the foundation of the chef's culinary repertoire. Committed to preserving traditional techniques, his now inimitable style showcases a distinct genre of southern Vietnamese cuisine with une touche Française.
Large floor-to-ceiling patio doors open up onto a bustling square revealing a bright and clean 70-seat dining room that welcomes guests for food and drinks. Lofty pressed ceilings, vintage Indochine accents and intricately-tiled floors create an enchanting atmosphere. A well-stocked and prominent bar reinforces the French brasserie culture of casual drinking with friends, family and colleagues.
Open for dinner first with all-day dining to begin early next year, Black Sheep Restaurants' latest concept takes Vietnamese cuisine far beyond pho and spring rolls, with a forward-thinking menu and classic Parisian design that will redefine Vietnamese cuisine in Hong Kong.
