JAR stands for “just-a-restaurant”, which is what its name is an acronym for. In Hong Kong, a straight-up, gimmick-free establishment, is hard to come by.

Brought to you by 789 Unit & Co. — the same company that owns two other Hong Kong restaurants, 789 Unit & Co Bistro and 789 Unit & Co. Gastropub — the casual urban theme that’s present in the other eateries is alive and well here, too. Brown leather upholstered benches surround the walls, and the tables come with alternating white and black bistro chairs. Unadorned light bulbs hang from the ceiling.
