Sevva Restaurant Review: If there is a place to be seen in Hong Kong, it's this restaurant and lounge --- its name pronounced ‘savor’ --- from socialite Bonnie Gokson, sister of fashion icon Joyce Ma. The 22,000-square-feet penthouse perched atop the Prince's Building is wrapped by a 360-degree balcony conferring views of Central and Admiralty, Victoria Harbour and the Kowloon skyline. Of the five unique enclaves, the Bank Side caters to the power elite with the HSBC headquarters within sight, while The Terrace is de rigueur for Hong Kong’s late-night black-clad denizens. Bold-face named architect Calvin Tsao created two equally elegant dining rooms plus an aromatic vertical garden wall in between. Gokson herself can be seen here regularly, dining on her favorite clay pot rice brimming with chicken and abalone. Groups should share a few of the oversize Indian and creative Mediterranean dosas. The macaroni and triple cheese baked with truffles is pure indulgence. Salads, like the tri-colored tomato, burrata and sweet basil in aged white balsamic dressing, are a feast for the eyes as well as the palate. The Nub Nub combines ten fresh vegetables with pickles, all hand-chopped and served atop crispy popped rice vermicelli in a lettuce wrap. Indulge in Marie Antoinette’s Crave, a kaleidoscopic confection of rose petals and mini-macaroons on pistachio sponge cake with cotton candy.
