Anche l’apparecchiatura, con calici e posate, dichiara chiaramente lo stile europeo del locale.
Even the tableware, with its glasses and cutlery, clearly highlights the European style of the restaurant.

Chairs and benches in polished wood with upholstered leather seats, solid-wood tables, glass and metal chandeliers… The Continental restaurant clearly draws its inspiration from the grand coffee houses of Europe! Just think that this restaurant, whose interior design is the brainchild of David Collins Studio, is unexpectedly located between the skyscrapers of Hong Kong – a pleasant paradox.
A paradox in the sense that the Continental is located in a relatively small area on the fourth floor of the Pacific Place shopping centre complete with shops, offices and an open-air square on the last floor. The locale consists of a small cocktail bar and a 185-seat dining room, which looks out by way of large windows onto the square. The restaurant’s menu offers dishes that come from the four corners of the Old Continent. Specialties prepared by Chef Rowley Leigh are for all tastes, but special attention has been given to dishes based on fish, the pride of the restaurant.

L’eleganza “viennese” del The Continental non risulta austera soprattutto perché sdrammatizzata dal particolare soffitto dalle forme sinuose, tipiche dell’architettura di Heatherwick..
"Viennese" elegance at The Continental is not austere, especially since it is played down by the sinuous decorations on the ceiling, typical of Heatherwick architectural style.

The Moodboarders is a glance into the design world, which, in all of its facets, captures the extraordinary even within the routine. It is a measure of the times. It is an antenna sensitive enough to pick-up on budding trends, emerging talents and neglected aesthetics. Instead of essays, we use brief tales to tune into the rhythm of our world. We travelled for a year without stopping, and seeing as the memory of this journey has not faded, we have chosen to edit a printed copy. We eliminated anything episodic, ephemeral or fading, maintaining a variety of articles that flow, without losing the element of surprise, the events caught taking place, and the creations having just bloomed.
