In Kong, likely Chinese owner/chef Michael O'Halloran's aiming to replicate the convivial atmosphere and home cooking aspects of Hong Kong's streetside open-air food stalls, via a laid-back 85-seater, fronted by floor-to-ceiling glass and decked with reclaimed pine bar/tabletops, along with an entire wall section of distressed plaster and cement adorned with a column of Chinese screed, and a raised-platform rear communal table, all lit by hanging bulbs housed in birdcages and chicken wire, to protect them against party fowls.
