Celebrated French chef Alain Ducasse certainly has a huge appetite for new horizons. This time with the debut of a new restaurant identity – Rech by Alain Ducasse within the former SPOON restaurant space at InterContinental Hong Kong. The newly renovated restaurant is an offshoot of Rech, the famous Parisian seafood establishment that’s been around since 1925. Marie Deroudilhe is the architect in charge who gave the new place a modern and relaxed seaside-inspired ambiance by taking full advantage of the hotel’s panoramic waterfront views.
Rech by Alain Ducasse will offer top quality fish, shellfish and oysters from France (especially Brittany) with Chef Ducasse’s personal interpretation and contemporary cuisine. Infact, the fish selection comes primarily from small fishing boats whose outings are limited to three hours so as to bring the fish back to the quays, still alive.
Executive Chef Stéphane Gortina will collaborate with Ducasse on a menu with Rech’s signature dishes such as “Pan-seared line-caught sole, new potatoes” and “XL éclair, chocolate or vanilla”. There’s also the signature dessert “Mr. Rech” named after the founder of Rech Paris, Mr. Adrien Rech.
