Onno Schreurs, Managing Director of DiningCity said “We are truly grateful to the diners and restaurants who participated in this summer’s Restaurant Week. Everyone has truly embraced the Week – their enthusiasm for this event has been exceptional – we have had more restaurants, more reservations, more bloggers and more social media interactions than ever before. We also congratulate all the winning restaurants – they delivered brilliant menus and fantastic service that was judged by Hong Kong’s discerning foodies, who at times can be quite tough.
“We took a risk holding Restaurant Week twice a year but we’re satisfied by the results and believe it can become a regular event in Hong Kong’s food calendar. Consequently, we’re delighted to reveal that the next edition will take place 25 February to 3 March 2012” added Schreurs.
