NORDIC: Frantzén's Kitchen to open in Hong Kong
NEWS NORDIC: After the recent shocker that fine dining restaurant Frantzén was closing and reopening at a new location in 2017, comes the news that Björn Frantzén is taking his gastronomy all the way to Hong Kong in November.
Björn Frantzén has been in the news more than once this year, popping up in Dubai and surprising everyone with the news that his fine dining restaurant in Stockholm was closing in July, in order to reopen at a new location in the beginning of 2017 – retaining the number of seats (22) but increasing the area more than fivefold: from 90 to 500 square meters. And now, the opening of an entirely new restaurant in Hong Kong has been announced: Frantzén's Kitchen will be serving up a Nordic taste experience based on local ingredients. An exciting mission in an area already well-known for gastronomic mastery and influenced by many different cultures. Head chef Jim Löfdahl will be heading the new project, in cooperation with local entrepreneurs Arne and Helen Lindman. A sneak peek at the menu reveals "Nordic sushi", as well as scallop with dashi and dried coral, and a macaron with foie gras.
Frantzén's Kitchen will open in November of 2016 at 11 Upper Station Street in Sheung Wan, seating 36.
