Unique Concept Dining: The Magistracy

Unique Concept Dining: The Magistracy

Located in Hong Kong’s vibrant central district lies a culinary gem with a rich history – The Magistracy. Once the hallowed halls of the Supreme Court until 1979, this iconic building has been meticulously restored by the visionary team at Black Sheep, breathing new life into its venerable walls.

The Magistracy unfolds its story in phases, the first of which unveiled the Magistracy Dining Room back in 2022. With a timeless charm that transports you to a bygone era, this room was inspired by the splendour of London. Executive Chef Matthew Kirkley has created a menu that starts with a variety of oysters and fine caviar from Beluga, Daurenki and Ossetra. 

Celebrating the breadth of seafood dishes definitive of classic London restaurants, the heart of the menu highlights a selection of whole fish flown in daily from the English Channel and plump, robust Brittany lobsters. Select from the wild-caught Dover sole, which can be enjoyed meunière or as simple yet stunningly delicious goujons, crispy fried sole fillets served with a house-made tartare.

The Magistracy is not merely a gastronomic delight; it is a multifaceted experience. As patrons savour the culinary masterpieces, they can also bask in the natural beauty of Botanical Garden, another jewel in The Magistracy’s crown. This lush oasis, brimming with verdant foliage, whisks visitors from the urban hustle to a tranquil haven. It’s more than just a garden; it’s a sensory retreat and the city’s finest gin and tonic garden.

Botanical Garden serves as a sanctuary within the bustling metropolis, inviting guests to unwind amidst the vibrant greenery. Imagine sipping on a perfectly crafted gin and tonic while surrounded by the symphony of nature – a truly unparalleled experience in the heart of Hong Kong.
