Restaurant Zén by Swedish 3 Michelin star Chef Björn Frantzén officially opened on November 21.
In partnership with Unlisted Collection, the restaurant occupies the former André space.
Zén is Björn’s first international restaurant to serve only a tasting menu and similar to Frantzén, a visit
to Zén is a gastronomic journey through the three floors of the restored heritage shophouse.
The tasting menu speaks of its own individuality while conveying the signature Frantzén culinary
philosophy, which is anchored on Chef Björn’s creative approach on Nordic, French and Japanese
cuisines. Comprises of nine courses and canapes, the menu is created by a combination of Frantzén
techniques and the finest seasonal produce. Guests can also look forward to flavours and
ingredients unique to the Nordic region that are reimagined the Frantzén way.
To complement the tasting menu, Zén offers an original non-alcoholic juice pairing developed by the
culinary team. Designed as a continuation of the Zén and Frantzén culinary philosophy, all of the
beverages are equally imaginative and produce-driven. An example is a sparkling aperitif made of
heirloom tomatoes and red plums. Alcoholic beverage pairing is also available.
The intimate 24-seater Zén shares the same design DNA as its sister restaurant Frantzén, one
focused on the Swedish craftsmanship and legacy. The interior of the restaurant is created in
collaboration with JOYN STUDIOS Architects, who is also behind the award-winning design of the
restaurant in Stockholm as well as Frantzén’s Kitchen in Hong Kong.
The team includes General Manager Aaron Jacobson from 3-star Benu in San Francisco and Head
Chef Tristin Farmer with a background including Maze by Gordon Ramsay in London, Aberdeen
Street Social in Hong Kong and Marina Social in Dubai. Executive Chef Marcus Jernmark of three
Michelin star Restaurant Frantzén will oversee the operation during the first months.
