The fashionable new gastro-restaurant Cepage, in Wanchai's Starstreet in Hong Kong, has been awarded its first prestigious Michelin star in its first year of operation. The Hong Kong flagship of Singapore’s award-winning Les Amis Group was applauded for “charming service”, “stylish design” and “one of the most impressive wine lists in Hong Kong”.

Cepage has been honoured with one star in the latest 2010 Michelin Guide to Hong Kong and Macau.

Nestled between Wanchai and Central in Starstreet, the restaurant blends old world opulence with cutting edge design. It is inspired by classic European architecture and styled after an 18th century French villa.

Cepage introduces to Hong Kong the same award-winning “blend” of French-Mediterranean fare, one of the region’s finest wine lists and personalised service, that has made Les Amis a Singapore fine dining legend over the past 14 years.

Cuisine is by internationally renowned Chef Thomas Mayr, a veteran of numerous Michelin-starred restaurants in Italy and Germany. Focusing on quality ingredients which complement the local climate and palate, he said, “I keep the dishes relatively simple to let the ingredients speak for themselves.”

Cepage is named after the French wine terminology meaning a “blend of” or “variety of” grapes and houses one of Hong Kong's most celebrated wine cellars, boasting over 2,400 labels and some of the world's most revered vintages.

The international wine list is one of the finest in Asia, hand-picked by Group Director of Operations Randy See, who was voted 'Sommelier of the Year' for three years running at the annual World Gourmet Summit.
