Krug Room Review
This private dining room is a must-visit for serious epicures. The experience is a bit surreal—guests are led through the hotel's legendary Chinnery Bar to a black door that announces the exclusive Krug Room; within is a table that seats up to 12 diners and gives full view of the kitchen, where chef Uwe Opocensky and his team are busy at work. This is essentially Opocensky's creative workshop: he trained at El Bulli, and he calls his cuisine "progressive gastronomy"—dishes such as the signature "Rain" salad appear like potted plants with edible soil (usually made with arugula or anchovy purée). A meal here isn't cheap; it costs at least HK$2,000—but you get 10 to 14 courses (sometimes more) and a complimentary first glass of bubbly.
