With travel restrictions still prevailing, many of us are wistfully dreaming about our next vacation in a far-flung, sun-soaked destination. While planes are grounded, we are giving you the homebound holiday you deserve, introducing a themed pop-up restaurant and market running from 2 April to 18 April. Located at Tai Kwun’s Magistracy building, ‘Primavera ad Amalfi’ brings the charm of the Amalfi Coast to the heart of Hong Kong, evoking the coastal atmosphere of scenic seaside eateries overlooking the shimmering Mediterranean Sea. Enjoy sublime seafood dishes, signature cocktails and boutique wines at our restaurant ‘Osteria Positano’, accompanied by a seaside soundtrack and genuine Italian hospitality.
Synonymous with endless summers, the Amalfi Coast is one of the world’s most idyllic coastlines, a picturesque assortment of colourful towns nestled into steep cliffsides, sun-dappled coves, and restaurants and cafés brimming with freshly caught ocean produce. Transforming the ground floor of the historical building at Tai Kwun, Primavera ad Amalfi embraces this spirit of lazy Italian summers, offering an instant escape to the sun-drenched coast of Italy—perfect for those itching for their next adventure abroad.
Embrace the sweet life or ‘la dolce vita’ at pop-up restaurant Osteria Positano, savouring delectable regional dishes inspired by one of the best food destinations in the world, chased down by a bottle of vino shared amongst friends and family. Seating a total of 52 guests, the eatery evokes warm nights in Amalfi with the scent of the ocean breeze and glittering coastline accompanying long, drawn-out meals, served by a cast of gregarious Italian waiters. A traditional ocean-inspired menu celebrates the diverse cuisine found in the seaside regions of Italy, offering a mouth-watering assortment of dishes curated by the Black Sheep Restaurants culinary team.
Savour a four-course set menu ($850 per person, served family-style), which includes a spread of crudos and salad to start, followed by housemade fresh pastas with spanner crab and zucchini alongside a classic Stozzapreti with pesto Genovese, and the showstopping whole salt-baked Sea Bream to finish.
Just outside the restaurant, a cosy courtyard is inspired by the outdoor mercatos in Italy, with a handful of market stalls and fun carnival games to extend your Amalfi holiday. Sip on a Campari Soda or Aperol Spritz at the bar to whet your appetite before dinner, or enjoy a postprandial nightcap or gelato as you soak in the alfresco vibes. Sip and graze outdoors to a soundtrack of Italian jazz and folk, or enjoy an energetic game of bocce ball with your party to work up an appetite for dinner. Anyone with reservations at the restaurant will receive three complimentary tokens to use as you like at the food and game booths.
Whether wandering the pebbled pathways of the Amalfi Coast is a closely cherished memory or the journey exists only in imagination, you are invited to live out your sun-drenched Italian fantasies this month in one of the most historic Hong Kong buildings. So gather your friends and family, bring a hearty appetite, and get ready for a spring sojourn to the Amalfi Coast underneath the stars.
