Swedish Chef and Restaurateur Björn Frantzén have partnered with Unlisted Collection to open the new restaurant Zén on November 21.
Executive Chef Marcus Jernmark of 3-star restaurant Frantzén in Stockholm will oversee the operation during the first months.
The team will include 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.
” The gastronomy of Frantzén is influenced by the simplicity and elegance of Nordic, French and Japanese cuisine, so to be able to open this restaurant in Singapore that is such a cultural and gastronomic melting pot is an incredible and exciting opportunity”, Björn Frantzén
Zén is Björn’s first international restaurant to serve only a tasting menu.
Guests familiar with restaurant Frantzén in Stockholm will recognize details in both menu and ambience in the new restaurant Zén, although the former shop house setting will have its own DNA. The intimate experience invites guests to a journey through all three floors of the restaurant.
The interior of the restaurant is created in collaboration with JOYN STUDIOS Architects. The team is also behind the award-winning design of the restaurant in Stockholm as well as Frantzén’s Kitchen in Hong Kong.
Zén opens on November 21 on 41 Bukit Pasoh Rd, Singapore 089855.
Tables for November and December are released October 1st. Reservations for the coming month then will be available on the 1st of each month at 10 AM.
In 2008 Björn Frantzén opened his first restaurant, Frantzén in Stockholm, Sweden. The restaurant was awarded two stars in Guide Michelin after only two years in service, and its third star after six months in its current location.
