Hong Kong Advice

Hello all. I will be in Hong Kong for three days in September. I have been a few times before, though this time I will be traveling solo, which, I have found, is limiting in terms of dim sum and Chinese food in general. I would like to have mostly Chinese food, probably mostly Cantonese. I appreciate your thoughts and comments and suggestions for alternatives on my current plan.

Dinner day 1: I am currently reserved at Cafe Gray Deluxe, but I think I am changing this. I was thinking it might be nice to keep it easy and eat in my hotel the day I arrive after a long flight from the States, but I think I'd rather go out for Chinese food, rather than have a meal I can have anywhere in the world. So I am planning on replacing this with Yan Toh Heen at The Intercontinental, which I have fond memories of from the past, when it was The Regent. I am also considering Man Wah at The Mandarin Oriental; how do they compare?

Lunch day 2: Tin Lung Heen at the Ritz Carlton. Had a very nice dim sum lunch here two years ago, and I want to repeat. Pretty incredible spot, and very good food.

Dinner day 2: The Chairman. Looking for a good, classic Cantonese experience. Incidentally, I tried Fook Lam Moon on my last trip, and I did not like it all; decent food, overpriced with bad service. Is The Chairman a similar experience to FLM?

Lunch day 2: Open. Suggestions?

Dinner day 3: I am choosing between Above and Beyond and Hutong, leaning towards Hutong. Any thoughts or advice comparing the two places? How does their atmosphere/ clientele compare. Also, I am staying in Central; are there any places in Central you would recommend so I do not have to go back to Kowloon again, as I seem to be going there every day. My hotel also recommended Duddell's, at Shanghai Tang, which I know nothing about, but looks interesting.

Thank you.
