Lust, Caution - Tang Wei (2007) - The Verandah, Repulse Bay

This is the restaurant where Tony Leung takes Tang Wei on their first surreptitious meeting. We last saw it in the film Boarding Gate although I have since been informed that the replica building (replica of the original Repulse Bay Hotel, that is) this sits in is constructed from the same bricks that made the original. Apparently when the demolition took place the bricks were put into storage until needed. It's one of those tidbits of information that is not easily confirmed but worth including in case anyone can confirm either way.
