Looks like the SAR is jumping on the 'restaurant week' bandwagon. It's not till later this year (30 Oct - 8 Nov) according to their website, will be interesting to see how well received it is.
Funny though that the Tourism Board is championing it - shouldn't restaurant week be local participant-heavy? At least heavier than say, jade appreciation classes... It's under the umbrella of Hong Kong Food and Wine Year - wonder what that means? (The website is pretty fun - there's a section with HK food celebs, in case there are any groupies out there...)
From the Hong Kong Wine and Dine Festival website:
From 30 October until 8 November, Hong Kong will host a series of wine and dine activities. There will be a
Hong Kong Wine and Dine Festival from 30 October until 1 November at the West Kowloon Waterfront Promenade featuring enormous wine pavilions, stalls serving delicious food and live music that will keep visitors entertained. Lan Kwai Fong and SoHo will also be holding individual Wine and Dine Carnivals during this festive period.
Visitors can also attend wine appreciation classes conducted by local professionals, as well as wine tours and walks, while at the same time explore Hong Kong's fascinating living culture.
During the event period, there will be many wine promotions and special offers. The Hong Kong Trade Development Council will be hosting the Hong Kong International Wine and Spirits Fair 2009 from 4-6 November, providing wine lovers in the region with an opportunity to sample the world of wine and spirits.
