The Flying Elk will open is door in Hong Kong on June 16.
Whether Nordic produce, Nordic flavoring or Nordic cooking techniques, the promise is to taste the heritage of Swedish 3-Michelin star awarded chef Björn Frantzén throughout the gastronomy.
Flying Elk will be the new concept of Björn Frantzén after Frantzen’s Kitchen. Waiting mid june to discover Flying Elk, let s review again the Frantzen’s Kitchen.
Booked up for weeks in advance, the restaurant is small, intimate, a perfect combination of casual and sophisticated. Helmed by Swedish chef Jim Löfdahl, he represents the young generation of successful chefs who are completely dedicated to their calling.
Bjorn remembers how he at age 12 once was served a perfect steak, with french fries and béarnaise sauce – one of his very first strong culinary memories that came to inspire him in his career.
Frantzén’s Kitchen is a modern Nordic restaurant serving medium-sized dishes with Asian influences, all set in a casual and relaxed environment. You can choose to sit at the kitchen counter for the full experience or at a table in the dining room.
