The overall impression at glass is one of timeless beauty and elegance with a stunning interplay of space and light. Here you will find stunning glass lifts passing through the floor as well as open theatre and pastry kitchens, a chef's table and a crustacean bar. Two 13m high wine towers and a phenomenal 30m long wine wall are also distinctive interior features.
PROFILE BY BEST RESTAURANTS
The choice of name for Hilton's resident restaurant, glass brasserie, is not puzzling. After all, this sleek, sparkling restaurant is the proud owner of a 13-metre glass facade. And, rather than dominating the dining room, this element works only to embellish it by providing guests with natural light as well as first-rate views of the QVB. Likewise the restaurant's interior with its contemporary brown curved booths, white linen-set tables, clothed chandeliers and soaring wine towers complement the facade, and exude sophistication.
The menu offers several course options, which begin with appetisers and move through caviar and oysters onto entrees, mains, cheeses and desserts. Start with the Hiramasa kingfish sashimi with ginger, eschalot and Persian fetta, which is a signature dish of Chef Luke Mangan. An equally impressive meal that offers textural complexity is an organic swimmer crab omelette that comes topped with an enoki mushroom and herb salad and a miso mustard broth. Mains present robust options from the grill as well as cleverly crafted seasonal dishes made for sharing or individual consumption. Glass presents an extensive 900+ wine list that is constantly evolving. These drops can be enjoyed with dinner, as part of a degustation or sampled at the adjoining wine bar. Ask sommelier, Kim Bickley, or her team to help you with your selection.
