About the restaurant
An art gallery, restaurant and bar all in one, Mitte is one of the hippest new hangouts in Hong Kong’s Sheung Wan. Taking inspiration from Berlin’s casual cafes and bars, the establishment has a particular edgy vibe that attracts the city’s young and cool. Serving up a menu of mostly Italian and Mediterranean specialties, the restaurant is popular among local foodies who like their pastas homemade and their pizzas gourmet. Situated on Upper Station street, Mitte has earned a reputation as one of the coolest locales in the city.
Named after one of Berlin’s most lively districts, Mitte on Upper Station Street is the lovechild of three friends – an American, an Italian and a German – who all met in Germany’s capital and later met again in Hong Kong. Known as Hong Kong’s only osteria Berlinese, this Sheung Wan restaurant combines the laid-back, comfortable feel of a Berlin bar with the traditional cuisine of the Mediterranean.
Well-known for their brunch specials, a visit to Mitte on Saturday or Sunday from 11am to 3pm is never a bad idea. Decide from a number of antipasti before moving on to mains like carbonara di zucchine or an Italo burger made with high-quality New Zealand beef and topped with pecorino Romano cheese, rocket, tomato, and spicy basil mayo. Stop by Mitte during the evening hours and indulge in expertly made cocktails inspired by Berlin’s thriving nightlife – try the bar’s signature Negroni drinks and prepare to be blown away. Reservations are a must for this Italian restaurant and Berlin-inspired bar in Hong Kong’s Sheung Wan.
