La Petite Maison is coming to H Queen’s in Central via Arjun Waney of London, who also co-owns London’s perennially popular Zuma and newer Peruvian hotspot Coya.
Joining fine-dining H Queen’s superstars Arbor and ÉCRITURE, this branch of the London-based LPM mini restaurant empire is serving up the same stellar Niçoise and Mediterranean dishes in chic but relaxed surrounds – think the fresh, summery flavours of ratatouille with feta and whole sea bream baked en papillote with lemon, herbs and olive oil.
For heartier fare, the whole black-leg roast chicken and whole roast leg of milk-fed Lozère lamb with spiced couscous are justly famous.
Signature French toast
The Hong Kong menu includes French toast with spice ice cream ($118), escargots with fresh herbs and garlic butter ($218), warm prawns with olive oil ($178) and a wide selection of classic carpaccios such as scallop, yellowtail and octopus.
Escargots with fresh herbs and garlic butter
If you plan to enjoy the beloved whole roast chicken stuffed with foie gras ($1,198), it should be pre-ordered the day before and is subject to availability.
Chef Patron Raphael Duntoye
The menu is designed and overseen by Chef Patron Raphael Duntoye. The Nigerian-born chef changed course in 1995 from his chosen career of engineering to follow a lifelong passion for food and cooking. His entry to the culinary world involved working alongside the legendary Pierre Kofmann at his three-Michelin-starred restaurant La Tante Claire in London. In Hong Kong, the menu execution will be up to Executive Chef Sheldon Fonseca.
La Petite Maison Hong Kong
With a 3,600-square-foot location, La Petite Maison is going for a sense of laid-back Niçoise exuberance – that sounds like something we can get behind.
