The Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong Unveils Almas Caviar Bar

Hong Kong, September 29, 2015 – At the forefront of Hong Kong’s dining scene since opening in 2011, The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong continues to excite food connoisseurs with its gourmet offerings. With its latest culinary addition – Almas Caviar Bar opened on September 26, 2015, the Ritz-Carlton’s broad spectrum of dining options goes from strength to strength.

With an exclusive seating of only seven guests, Almas Caviar Bar on Level 102 offers an intimate dining experience in the classic grandeur of dark wooden flooring and leather furnishings. The four-meter-subtly-lit chandelier provides soft warmth to the elegant bar, exuding the charm of a luxurious pre- or post-dinner rendezvous. Almas Caviar Bar takes its name from its premium caviar Almas Persicus. This highly coveted caviar is found in the Acipenser Persicus sturgeon of the Caspian Sea. Almas Caviar Bar is Asia’s sole official retailer of this legendary caviar. In addition to this gem of the sea, the bar also boosts an exquisite selection of five other fine caviars, Prunier, Tradition, Paris, Heritage and Oscietra Classic. Harvested from sturgeon farms operated strictly according to European Union regulations, the caviar selection varies in color, size, and flavor profile to please even the most exacting gourmets. Traditionally served with blinis, crème fraîche, chopped red onions, egg white and lemon wedges allowed diners to customize their own delicacies. Champagnes and vodkas, including Caviar House Champagne Brut, Caviar House Champagne Rosé and Beluga Vodka Classic, are available for guests to further enhance and enjoy the epicurean pleasures to the fullest. Another gourmet highlight is Balik salmon fillet from the Barents Sea above Norway. Made from the prime back fillet, Fillet Tsar Nikolaj No 1 remains true to the secret recipe of the purveyor to the court of the last Russian Tsar Nikolaj II. For detailed product information and prices, please refer to the appendix.

Mr. Pierre Perusset, General Manager of The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong, said, “With the addition of Almas Caviar Bar to our existing five restaurants and bars, we refine and complement our culinary offerings”. He continued, “From two Michelin-Starred Cantonese delicacies at Tin Lung Heen to Asian inspired cocktails at the world’s highest bar Ozone, and from the modern interpretations of Italian flavors at Michelin-Starred Tosca to the most desired caviars of the world at Almas Caviar Bar, The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong delivers the finest gastronomic experiences under one roof”.
