Husband and wife-run Enoteca Group will be launching new restaurant, The Conservatory, in Sai Kung Square in mid to late November.
Taking over the space of Grande, the group has signed a six year agreement with the landlord for an undisclosed amount and purchased the fitted equipment from the owners of Grande. “Both were reasonable numbers that made opening a business viable”, notes Enoteca Group Director and Clearwater Bay resident, Robert Cooper. The space comes with an outdoor seating license.
“We’ve watched Sai Kung grow over 20 years and feel that with the growth of residences and international schools, there’s now a wider dining market now than ever before”. Following on from its other restaurants in SoHo, The Conservatory will bring a combination of Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and Pan Asian cuisine to Sai Kung. The menu will focus on shared plates and feature some of the favourite dishes from their sister restaurants. Some highlights include pesto chicken and parmesan risotto balls, smoked tuna ceviche and coffee banoffee pie.
To fit in with the atmosphere of Sai Kung Square, the restaurant will be family-oriented with a healthy kids’ breakfast menu, brunch and a la carte dishes. “We looked at a bunch of sites but the Square is family-friendly. It’s a social focal point for us as parents so it’ll be a relaxed and pleasant environment to work in.” Cooper adds, “Although we are excited to be part of the street scene, be gentle with us Sai Kung, there are always teething problems”.
