Hot idea: Michelin-star Meetings

International Director Michael Ellis launches The Michelin Guide Hong Kong
International Director Michael Ellis launches The Michelin Guide Hong Kong

The Michelin Guide Hong Kong and Macau 2017 was released last week, unveiling the latest restaurants to garner (and lose) the coveted Michelin star. With a wide range of cuisines and styles, the guide offers organisers who are looking to impress their clients a list of impressive and safe options.

If planners are really looking to wow guests there are six three-starred restaurants in Hong Kong and two in Macau - both of which are located in the Grand Lisboa complex on the Macau peninsula. The Eight, a Chinese restaurant which features auspicious goldfish motifs throughout, offers private dining rooms with luxurious details and facilities including the leather seats which made from the same leather found in Ferrari cars.

Moving along to two starred restaurants, there are 14 in Hong Kong and five in Macau. Mizumi, the high-quality Japanese restaurant in Wynn Macau is on that list, having garnered an extra star since its relaunch, which took place earlier this year.

And for one-starred restaurants Hong Kong boasts and impressive 41 restaurants which includes the new Beefbar restaurant which, as its name suggests, specialises in beef. Two private rooms are on offer, which can seat 10 to 16 guests. Macau is now home to 12 one-starred restaurants, some of which are newcomers and some of which have been downgraded from two to one stars this year.
