Newly Opened Junon Showcases French Fine Dining With A Dose Of Nostalgic Hong Kong
First opened in 1966 on Nathan Road, Juno revolving restaurant was the first of its kind more than half a century ago. The Kowloon dining staple has since closed, but Hopewell Holdings Limited, who currently lease to The Grand Buffet, the city’s remaining revolving restaurant, is collaborating with Cantopop idol Hins Cheung to bring back a revamped version of Juno at Wan Chai’s Wu Chung House.
The new restaurant is named Junon. Gone is the revolving platform and a panoramic view of the city, but the new establishment retains the vintage glamour of fine dining, featuring a dimly lit interior and a stained-glass ceiling. There will also be a theatre-style stage, where live entertainment will be showcased throughout dinner service. Junon marks the inaugural food and beverage project for Cantonese pop star Hins Cheung, who contributed to some of Junon’s design elements.
Headed by French chef Antoine Michelson, the new establishment will feature three dining sections: The Bar at the centre of the restaurant; Bistro Junon for a la carte options, and La Scene de Junon, the main dining area where guests can enjoy a prix fixe French-inspired menu with nightly live entertainment. Junon is now open for dinner with lunch options available beginning February 2018.
