Nobu Hong Kong’s former chef opens Silencio

Former chef at Nobu Hong Kong has opened a new Japanese restaurant, Silencio, which is said to be the city’s “first and only contemporary izakaya” – an informal Japanese-style drinking venue.

Opened in Central, Silencio recreates the ambiance of Japan’s drinking dens, uplifted with modern art pieces by Tomoo Gokita and a menu of reimagined Japanese izakaya favourites by executive chef Sean Mell, who has worked as the longtime chef at Nobu Hong Kong with over 10 years of combined experience at Nobu across the globe.

Mell uses innovation while respecting the traditions of Japanese cuisine to create an izakaya experience.

Korean chef Yong Soo Do joins him at the helm as chef de cuisine, while restaurant manager Eli Homawoo brings her style and flair as well as 20 plus years of hospitality experience from NYC to London, and now Silencio.

The restaurant is now open for booking.
