The Progress, locating near the Japantown on Fillmore, is the sister restaurant of the famous State Bird Provisions, which is a michelin one-starred restaurant. They are geographically right next to each other as well. Since my friend and I couldn't snap a table at the State Bird Provisions, we were glad that at least we got one at The Progress. Though The Progress has not yet earned a michelin star yet, the Esquire magazine has named it the 2015's best new American restaurant, and the chefs/owners, Stuart Brioza and Nicole Krasinski, are the masters behind the scene.
Tin Lung Heen (天龍軒) is situated in the 102F of Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Hong Kong. It has received its first star soon after the opening in 2011, and been maintaining its two-starred honor since 2012. This achievement has to be attributed to the chef Paul Lau Ping Lui, whom is regarded as one of the top Cantonese chefs in Hong Kong. Since dim sum is a must in Hong Kong, and it's such a casual thing to do with friends and family, sometimes it is okay to fancy it up.
Bouley is an one Michelin-starred restaurant locating in the TriBeCa of New York. I visited when I went with my family back in May. A fine dining lunch has become a family tradition whenever we reunite. As there are quite a lot of michelin-starred restaurants in New York, you might wonder why I chose Bouley?
Hong Kong is definitely one of the cities with most diversity for its food scenes. From local street food vendors to Michelin-starred restaurants, and classic Hong Kong-styled eatery to prestigious western fine dining. Hong Kong is one of the places in Asia that allows you to "eat around the world" without traveling too far.
