Happy Paradise

Hong Kong, China

May Chow was already a rising culinary star when she opened this outpost in 2017. An homage to 1960s Hong Kong, the Formica-clad Happy Paradise twists Cantonese classics and haute cuisine. Think tea-smoked pigeon and sourdough chicken-fat waffles. “We’re not afraid,” she has said, “to serve whole birds or brains.” —Joseph Hincks
