my good old foodie friend Leo took me here for lunch today (hurray!)
“Linguini, from the Italian word ‘lingua’ meaning tongue, and
Fini – meaning fine or of superior skill and quality”
Linguini Fini is another brainchild of successful restaurateurs Todd Darling and Robert Spina
rustic New York Italian cuisine that boasts the use of the finest
‘locally grown, organic hand-picked produce, sustainable seafood, and all-natural meats, rice and pasta’
they are exclusively supplied by Homegrown Foods
(another one of their great initiatives, see http://www.ihm.com.hk/ for further details)
sourcing food that are locally grown from farms around Hong Kong,
which helps to shorten their carbon footprint & supports the local communities
(and frankly, is much safer to eat than produce from ze motherland, haha)
I squealed at their grungy New York oft interiors that had splashes of StartfromZero
(which warrants my squealing)
cutest toilet wallpaper ever!
ground floor : The Bar
We were so engrossed in conversation that I had …
FORGOTTEN TO TAKE PICTURES OF OUR MAINS.
[needs to be flogged]
but that means I’ll just have to revisit it haha
Leo had the salt cured egg genovese & I had the dried shrimp diavola linguini
it was definitely delizioso!
This is an impeccably well considered brand;
I was immediately drawn to their collateral the moment I walked into their space
their staff had matching aprons & uniforms that were equally well designed!
(have really begun to notice & appreciate all these little details that makes up a brand, many thanks to my talented SHIFU!)
a must visit!
