The statement noted that 8 ½ Otto e Mezzo BOMBANA has received a Michelin star for eight consecutive years, and a Forbes Travel Guide’s five-star honour this year.

The statement said that Sehgal, who is from India, previously worked in top bars in Delhi and Mumbai. He joined the Hong Kong team at Michelin-starred 8 ½ Otto e Mezzo BOMBANA in 2014, becoming the head mixologist, and led the restaurant to the list of “Asia’s 50 Best Bars” for four years.
