The Sunlitun, Wan Chai
It's hard to keep track of all the East-meets-West restaurants in Hong Kong. This one, open since 2002, has proven its staying power by continuing to attract a trendy crowd, who lounge on sofas and comfy chairs on an open deck, one of many open-air restaurants ringing an upper-floor terrace around the Sanlitun building in Wan Chai, not far from the convention center. The changing menu runs the gamut from pasta and grilled meats to seafood, sashimi, and Asian cuisine. You might, for example, select the grilled lemongrass baby pork rib with red curry or baked herb-crust-gratinated Chilean sea bass served with mashed potatoes and vegetables, while lunch adds items like burgers and pizza. Although Ramas Greens has a small indoor dining room, the large terrace, good for people-watching, is clearly where the action is. Happy hour runs from 5 to 9pm daily.
