The Upper House, part of The House Collective by Swire Hotels, announces the closure of Café Gray Deluxe with the last day of service on 31 December 2020. The Level 49 grand café set a new tone for Hong Kong’s luxury dining scene when it opened in 2009.
Its relaxed take on fine dining and warm, personalised service established The Upper House as a modern dining destination, fostering a strong local and international following and winning numerous awards.
Prior to its closure, Café Gray Deluxe will present a curated menu that encapsulates the signature flavours and memories that guests have cherished over the 11 years. A new dining concept will be revealed in spring 2021.
“We thank our friends and guests who have helped shape Café Gray Deluxe’s imprint on the community since the beginning. We are all extremely proud of the reputation and success we have gained since 2009 and are excited about the next chapter for The Upper House,” said Yvonne Cheung, Director of Restaurants, The Upper House.
Known among his peers as a Chef’s Chef, Gray Kunz was the creative tour-de-force behind Café Gray Deluxe. Admired around the world for his unique style, Chef Gray’s signature cuisine was an artform in itself; blending complex flavors, ingredients and classic elegance of Asian and European culinary traditions.
As a farewell, and to celebrate Gray Kunz’s incredible culinary work, Café Gray Deluxe will present a unique menu featuring creations that best represent Chef Gray’s emblematic craft such as Tarragon Scented Lobster Bisque, Braised Short Rib of Beef and Chilled Soup of Chrysanthemum and Pear. Available from now until end of December 2020.
The community are encouraged to share their photos and memories via Instagram by using the hashtag #FarewellCafeGrayDeluxe.
The new concept opening in spring 2021 will mark a new chapter in the innovative dining approach for which The Upper House is known. Café Gray Deluxe at The Middle House in Shanghai will continue to operate as usual.
