Introducing Restaurant Selfie of Moscow, Russia

Mukhin’s and Kazakov’s menu both encompass a unique geography of 15 Russian regions. Seasonal products, careful attitude to traditions and present-day cooking techniques are the three main principles of Selfie kitchen.

Located on the penthouse floor of Hong Kong’s new cultural hotspot H Queen’s, Hong Kong hospitality group Le Comptoir presents ÉCRITURE, a space in which French cuisine is elevated to new heights by uniting it with exceptional Japanese produce to explore the endless possibilities that occur when Western craftsmanship meets Eastern philosophies. The East and the West have long held a mutual fascination and respect for one another, and at ÉCRITURE this comes together not only on the plate, but also in the effortlessly understated interiors. The restaurant takes its name from a series of paintings by Korean artist Park Seo-Bo – a work from which hangs in the private dining room, injecting a bold splash of red into a design scheme that celebrates the untold harmony found in contrasts and oppositions.
