Located on the eighth floor of the Conrad hotel, Brasserie on the Eighth is a classy yet relaxed spot for solidly executed Continental cuisine. The dining room opens up to views of Admiralty and Pacific Place and feels cosy and inviting. The cream-colored dining room may be bland but it does create an understated and comfortable dining environment.
Brasserie on the Eighth offers an extensive menu of Continental cuisine using fresh ingredients, with a focus on fresh seafood and an extensive steak selection. A few vegetarian options are available, including a fresh and refreshing vegetable garden salad made with fancy mixed greens tossed in a light balsamic vinaigrette and garnished with sweet melon and carrots. Foie gras three ways is one of the restaurant’s signature dishes and features an airy mousse, luxurious terrine and a rich, savory pan-seared portion. Accompaniments such as fig jam and tart gelee help cut the richness of the dish, which makes for a decadent but delicious start to any meal. For lighter fare, try the pike perch in aromatic stock, a generous portion of lean white fish submerged in a clear tomato consommé and topped with fennel, which lends a subtle licorice flavor to the dish. The pan-fried black strip seabass is also a good choice, well-seasoned and seared perfectly with crispy skin and succulent, tender meat. The dish is simply prepared, which lets the fresh flavour of the fish shine through. A fine selection of steaks is available, featuring USDA certified prime beef or grain-fed Australian Angus beef. For the ultimate carnivorous experience, try the tomahawk steak, which is carved tableside and can easily be shared by three to four people. The light and airy vanilla soufflé is the perfect ending to any meal and is served with your choice of vanilla, chocolate, passion fruit or raspberry sauces.
Although the wine list emphasises selections from France and Italy, there is a smattering of options from other regions including South America, Germany and Austria. A decent selection of wines by the glass is on offer, including a young but very drinkable Chateau La Tour Carnet 2005 for HK$198 per glass.
While the staff is courteous and friendly, service can be extremely slow between courses. When in doubt while navigating the menu, ask your server for recommendations as the staff is well-versed and knowledgeable.
A meal for two will average about HK$1,800, including wine. During the week, business lunch sets start at HK$358 for two courses.
