Coming Up This Weekend: An Auction Preview and Alternative Dining Spots
April 1, 2016
Beach bumming at Limewood
Maximal Concept’s seaside seafood joint Limewood is introducing a new menu this month, and what better way to spend the long weekend than to explore some of their new offerings? While classics like their 48-hour Charred Beef Ribs and their Pork Skin Chicharron Guacamole remain, they are complimenting their beachfront view with a Seafood Platter: a daily selection of both raw cooked seafood. For something a little more extravagant, try their Pacific Whole Lobster with Sriracha butter; not quite a Surf N’ Turf dish, but maybe the cocktails expertly paired with their dishes and garnished with fresh ingredients will make up for it.
Limewood. The Pulse, Shop 103 & 104 G/F, 28 Beach Road, Repulse Bay. +852 2866 8668.
Alternative dining at hmv eat
If you think that the music retailer has taken a back seat to your music streaming sites, think again. With the opening of its new flagship store in Causeway Bay, hmv has reinvented itself into a lifestyle hub with music at its core. The three-storey Causeway bay flagship also boasts a dedicated floor for its own restaurant, the hmv Bar & Restaurant. The 12,000 square-feet space is a welcome relief to the narrow shopping street below, and with power outlets in easy reach for patrons, this is a lifestyle café you’ll really want to sink into to spend the long weekend. Menus can be found on their website here.
hmv Bar & Restaurant. 4/F Pearl City, 22-36 Paterson Street, Causeway Bay. +852 2504 1538. The hmv outlet in Central also offers a café and bar at Entertainment Building.

Last dose of art at M+Sigg
If the long Easter weekend had you out of town and missing Art Week, or if you’re just looking to re-live the magic of that bustling but creative few days, then spend this long weekend visiting the M+Sigg collection. Four Decades of Chinese Contemporary Art is the largest and most comprehensive assemblage of Chinese contemporary art in the world, and while it has been running for a while now, it will be wrapping up on April 5. Part of Swiss collector Dr Uli Sigg’s donation to the future West Kowloon art museum M+, the exhibition includes works from the close of the Cultural Revolution till the Olympic era and present day.
