<<21st February 2019 – Hong Kong>> SILENCIO, the latest restaurant by award-winning hospitality group Le Comptoir, is Hong Kong’s only contemporary Japanese izakaya featuring a live entertainment twist. Silencio recreates the vibrant ambience of Japan’s much-loved drinking dens, uplifted with sleek interiors, an impressive line-up of live jazz and a menu of reimagined Japanese izakaya favourites.
Silencio’s interiors showcase the artworks of Tokyo-born cult figure Tomoo Gokita. Gokita’s paintings depict a neo-expressionistic style of modern art that dominated the 70’s, managing to simultaneously allure, inspire and disturb.
The kitchen will be helmed by Sean Mell, previously the Executive Chef of NOBU Hong Kong. Using premium seasonal ingredients and modern techniques, Chef Mell will introduce a refined rendition of traditional Japanese izakaya dishes to the heart of Hong Kong.
Stay tuned for more details on Silencio, in March 2019 in the 6th floor of Lan Kwai Fong Tower.

About Le Comptoir
Le Comptoir is an award-winning restaurant group founded in early 2013 with the goal of redefining what a fine dining experience can be. The name takes inspiration from the vibrant, convivial bar counter found in most French bistros and brasseries, where friends meet up to enjoy the good life.
True to its motto ‘fine dining redefined’, Le Comptoir has disrupted the Hong Kong hospitality scene with an uncompromising vision of creating compelling concepts that unite world class-cuisine, unparalleled art-centric interiors and faultless service.
The dedication to fine hospitality runs true in every Le Comptoir property, from the acclaimed modern French restaurant BIBO, a Relais & Châteaux member, to spectacular Michelin starred Breton cuisine at The Ocean, to the minimalistic yet elegant Écriture – newly awarded with two Michelin stars in December 2018.
