The 100 Top Tables 2017 – A CEO’s Dining Guide is the definitive pathfinder for senior executives to choose the best restaurants for leisure or business alike. It offers a collation of restaurants, meticulously selected by SCMP’s food critics, lifestyle experts and discerning gourmands, with essential information such as address, phone number, opening hours, corkage charges, availability of vegetarian dishes and valet parking, as well as our reviewers’ witty and veracious comments and dish recommendations.

Launch of “100 Top Tables 2017 – A CEO’s Dining Guide” (5th edition) garners HK & Macau’s top restaurateurs and chefs to celebrate and receive certificates of recognition.

Mr Gary Liu, SCMP Chief Executive Officer, remarked at the launch ceremony, “The 100 Top Tables, even in its short five-year lifespan, has found success as the go-to guide for executives who are looking for restaurants in which to impress and entertain guests, and to satiate an ever evolving need for the new and the extravagant. Only the best can make it to our list, I want to thank them for creating and sustaining such culinary vibrancy. It is our honor to celebrate this achievement with them.”

At the same occasion, Ms Winnie Chung, Editorial Director, SCMP Specialist Publications said, “Since the first edition of 100 Top Tables guide in 2013, it has been both delightful and challenging to search out establishments in Hong Kong and Macau with outstanding food, impeccable service, memorable culinary experiences and suitable ambience. And, 2016 was even more challenging as we had multiple fine restaurants opening every month, intensifying the already fierce competition. This year, 76 stalwarts of 100 Top Tables have made it back while 24 new inductees joined the list. I congratulate them all for consistently delighting us with memorable dining experiences.”

Valued for its impartiality and integrity, the 100 Top Tables 2017 will be available at major bookstores and supermarkets in Hong Kong at a retail price of HK$168 in mid-March. In-store copies can be found at a number of premium airport lounges in Asia and select recreation clubs.
