The cuisine of Bo InnoSeki, located in the Central district of Hong Kong Island, is inspired by kaiseki, a traditional Japanese multicourse meal of small tastes prepared with seasonal ingredients. The owner, Boris Yu, prefers to call the food "creative Hong Kong cuisine," because it includes influences from France, Spain and China. Rather than using conventional place mats, the 12 to 15 courses are served in small plates and shot glasses set on a stainless steel tray or a "stage" designed by Mr. Yu and his cook. The chef, Alvin Leung Jr., who was formerly an acoustic engineer, is generally inspired for his innovative and original offerings by what he finds in the marketplace. Mr. Leung integrates simple local ingredients with foreign delicacies to create a compelling series of small tastes. The restaurant, like most speakeasies, is small, limited to about 30 diners. Whitewashed walls are accentuated with colorful paintings by some of Hong Kong's up-and-coming artists. (The paintings are for sale, and they change periodically.) The tasting menu changes once a month. The wine list is small, but well-selected and reasonably priced.
