Who would have thought a restaurant would name itself “Écriture,” which means “writing” in French? Shouldn’t that be a name for a bookstore or a cafe at most? The only connection between écriture and the restaurant is that both are French. Executive Chef Maxime Gibert, also the former Chef de Cuisine at Amber, combines French techniques with Japanese foodspirations into his dishes. It seems like more and more restaurants in Hong Kong are leaning towards French-Japanese fusion, catering to Hong Kong’s appetite for fine dining with a healthier and lighter tastes.
The surprise came at the very end when one of the servers opened the book that has been placed on our table the whole time and revealed…
A CHOCOLATE COGNAC TART (as part of our petit fours).
All in all, I can’t say there were any surprises at Écriture but it was a very solid, enjoyable meal.
