Plat du Jour @ The Charm of French Magnifique


Since its opening last November, French bistro Plat du Jour has finally gained a wider audience support by providing a little more French magnifique to the neighborhood dining scene. Located at 17-21 Hoi Wan Street, Taikoo Place, this new Swire Hotels French bistro is the first standalone restaurant owned and managed by Swire Hotels. Inspired by an unapologetic love of classic French bistro dishes, the whole process of creating the menu is the latest venture and a voyage of rediscovery. The 60-seat restaurant opens for lunch and dinner daily offering authentic French regional cuisine. 


The design of the restaurant adds a modern twist to traditional Parisian style, the interior offers a cozy bistro atmosphere with burgundy leather banquettes and mosaic tiles on the entrance floor and is ideal for business gatherings as well as private social occasions. In keeping with the restaurant’s name, which means “dish of the day”, the menu features daily changing specials and was created by David Laris as part of his long-term collaboration with Swire Hotels. The Australian-Greek David Laris is renowned for his culinary success at Mezzo, Sir Terence Conran’s flagship restaurant in London, as well as for developing concepts such as The Fat Olive, Laris at Three on the Bund and the BellBrook.


Classic signature French bistro dishes such as steak tartare, boeuf bourguignon, moules marinières and tarte tatin are no stranger in Plat du Jour. The restaurant follows Swire Hotels’ sustainable dining principles: in addition to sourcing food from sustainable sources, the restaurant uses quality local ingredients wherever possible.


“The bistro’s uncomplicated style reflects the neighbourhood vibe, and with the creative and culinary expertise of David Laris, we are confident that the restaurant will offer authentic and high quality French cuisine to our guests,” said Brian Williams, Managing Director of Swire Hotels.
