SPOON The romantic equivalent of a brownie points ATM

[22/10/09] 

Saving the elderly from bingo hall fires, sponsoring Mongolian triplets, letting them give you a make over – these are all ways men can impress the fairer sex.

But a tried and tested method for instantaneous brownie point maximisation is taking her somewhere lavish for a romance-drenched meal; somewhere fancy, somewhere gourmet, somewhere that doesn’t have a single mounted television set or tap beer, a place that has the proles salivating like a Pavlovian puppy.
 
Devaux coupes, Ducati monsters and, of course, Alain Ducasse’ signature SPOON restaurant at the InterContinental Hong Kong Hotel – all classics guaranteed to get hearts throbbing. The introduction of a new menu at one of Hong Kong’s top eateries is just the excuse for a dynamite dinner date (and if you strike it lucky, amour is just an elevator ride away). SPOON is cool, calm and collected – there’s no snooty know-it-all waiter to make you look gastronomically retarded here – and the SPOON Experience, a six-course culinary and vocabulary adventure ($988 per person), showcases the best of the new menu without breaking the bank. You can also go the ‘Full Frenchman’, with the Tour de France lunch ($558 per person), which utilises only French produce (of course everyone has to sit on the left side of the table).
 
Trust us; you’ve never looked so good.
