Andō And The Pontiac Band Together In Response To Ongoing Dining Restrictions

August 28, 2020 Dining No Comments Email Email

Grappling with the ongoing government-backed dining restrictions, Andō, Chef Agustin Ferrando Balbi’s newly-opened restaurant, and The Pontiac (No. 35 on Asia’s 50 Best Bars 2020 list), a neighbourhood craft cocktail bar led by Beckaly Franks, have joined forces in inter-industry solidarity to counter the economic fall-out.

Running for one month from 28 August at Andō, the collaboration between Andō and The Pontiac will see three signature cocktails from The Pontiac made available for guests to enjoy alongside Andō’s tasting menus, with all cocktail sales going to The Pontiac. As a token of appreciation for their support of the F&B industry, Andō’s dine-in guests will also receive a complimentary welcome cocktail or mocktail to start the meal.

“It goes without saying these are the most challenging times for all of us in the F&B industry. It’s even more crucial for us, two parts of the trade – restaurants and bars – to come together and help each other to make sure that we, as an industry, survive,” said chef Agustin.

Priced at HKD$120 per cocktail, the collaboration will showcase THE HOBNAIL, the house signature which features rye whiskey, rich ginger syrup, Amaro Averna, lemon, angostura, and orange oil; P.O.G.D., the Pontiac’s ode to tropical Tiki flavours by way of a milk-clarified daiquiri of passion fruit, orange, guava, nocino, rum, orange bitters; as well as the BAD DREAM MAMA, composed of Cacao Carmel Reposado, Regan’s orange bitters, absinthe, orange & lemon oil, served in the style of an Old-Fashioned. Teetotallers will love the TRUTH HURTS mocktail which uses grapefruit, house bangerang syrup (The Pontiac’s version consists of falernum with fresh mint, vanilla, cinnamon and pink Szechuan pepper) and soda, garnished with a twirl of grapefruit.

“Currently, we are focused on ‘domestic investment’; aligning and collaborating with the amazing venues that are in Hong Kong.” Says Beckaly Franks, co-owner of The Pontiac. “The Pontiac has always taken pride in showing the world how supportive our community is and getting the chance to work with Andō and the world of JIA is a testament to this. Together we hope to show that we are all in this and will creatively do what it takes to keep the party going.”
