Our exciting lineup continues with Angelina, E.Marinella, Hanabi, and Nur! We are so excited to welcome our four new handpicked stores to Giftwell!
Angelina is truly a breath of fresh air with its charming, nostalgic interior, and beautiful outdoor seating. Right inside Lane Crawford at the IFC, It’s a great place to take a break from the hustle and bustle. You will feel transported in time and place.
Angelina was frequented by Coco Chanel and Audrey Hepburn and has been the ultimate gold standard for Parisian sweet treats for over a century! Their most well-known treats include the Mont-Blanc chestnut cream dessert and a hot chocolate made of cocoa beans from Africa, but we also love staying for a long lazy lunch and having the Croque Monsieur and Quiche Lorraine.
Nur is a refreshing addition to the Hong Kong restaurant scene. Thanks to chef Nurdin Topham’s commitment to stay true to his vision and what he believes in, it’s a place where words like farm-to-table, conscious eating, nourishing gastronomy actually mean what they are supposed to mean, rather than just marketing sound bites.
The food takes inspiration from chef Nurdin’s 20-year career through Raymond Blanc’s Michelin two-star Le Manoir Aux Quat’Saisons, as the personal Development Chef to Raymond, running the renowned Raymond Blanc Cookery School – and later at Nordic Food Lab whose founders are behind Copenhagen’s Noma, the world’s number-one restaurant . . . Nur is definitely the only spot in Hong Kong that can say all that!
Hanabi is an intimate omakase sushi bar where a traditional sushi and sashimi menu is met with modern twists – you will love and be surprised by the flavors, cutting-edge combination, on top of the uncompromising freshness. We love that the only choice on the menu is either a HK$800 or HK$1200 per person omakase menu; it takes a lot of confidence and convicton to offer just one choice.
The chef behind Hanabi is ex-Nobu Intercontinental chef Michael Chan who studied under the tutelage of famed sushi master chef Toshio Matsudo. Grab one of the 12 seats around the omakase sushi bar and have the food handed to you directly from the chef’s hands, one piece at a time.
If you are well-versed in men’s tailoring, then you must already know E. Marinella. Their ties are as top of the line as you can possibly get. Seen on the likes of Daniel Craig (yes!), John F. Kennedy, and former President Bill Clinton, this Naples-based 1914 Italian company elevates tie-making to an art form. Those who say a pair of shoes can really dress up an outfit have not come across E. Marinella. It shoud be the tie that transcends an outfit and makes it look even better . . .
