Selection Restaurant

Did You Know That… The main characters of “Selection” – a modern and exquisite gastronomic play – are fish and meat? The main plot puts a spotlight on these two in a unique chef’s interpretation (Ayk Weishtort), exploring the subject in an unconventional way.

The interior marries two polarities as contrasting as the stars themselves: hot and cold, fiery and water-based, rugged and smooth. Reflection in Our Design The heroes were attired in different colors, which prevail in their habitat as well: “gold” for fish and “silver&... More

FEEL – Fusion Restaurant

FEEL is a small, compact and decidedly intimate restaurant.
