    It finally clicked what/ where Junon is. It's that place by the Wanchai Post Office. It was opened up by some celebrities that recently pulled out right?
    When it comes to xiao long bao and other steamed dumplings, DTF > Crystal Jade
    When it comes to variety Crystal Jade > DTF. For this reason, Crystal Jade was always a good plan B because the menu was big enough that just about anyone could find a dish or two that would satisfy.

    Chinese:
    Mott 32
    WING (need to get a big group but boy is it impressive)

    If you know someone who is friendly with the 'old school' restaurants, it's worth going...eg Fook Lam moon, Seventh son etc. It's tougher otherwise to navigate there.

    Seafood in Lamma or Po Toi O
    Hutong has a world class view with expensive, pretty good (not great) food. I also think there is a per head minimum charge (or there was back in the day). It's an impressive place to take visitors.

    Anything in the Mandarin Oriental would be a safe bet.

    Is Yardbird still around? Yeah, they have chicken feet, but they also have "safe" and "familiar" cuts. I've never had a bad meal there.

    For the unadventurous tourist my list is below.

    Local, Tsui Wah or Hay Hay (Wan Chai) have a selection wide enough to accommodate western tastes.

    Western - You can’t go too wrong with a Jaspas

    High end. Brunch Sunday at Parkview hotel would get my vote.

    The one in KT has been getting very disappointing reviews from GeoExpat friends... They used to be competent (not excellent), but have heard that its gone downhill and the focus is more on the mainlanders who live / work / visit around KT and not really the expat market. Their coffee is good though and breakfast items also look good on other tables.

    Does anyone have anywhere close to the food of the Chinese American or Spring Deer that have both sadly shut down?

    hongkongmusic and Skyhook like this.

    Actually, I recommended this before, but it occurred to me as a great visitor treat:

    https://www.niccolohotels.com/en/nic...popinjays.html

    They do "fusion" things, so some dim sum style things. All very "clean". Wonderful atmosphere, great views, and we thought good food and value.
