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 Chef de cuisine Yong Soo Do. 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 along with sushi and sashimi to be paired with a curated selection of junmai sakes and hand-crafted cocktails.
