Franck Muller opens Hong Kong flagship store with two restaurants
The new Franck Muller Maison flagship store in Hong Kong is located within prime retail space on Causeway Bay’s Sharp Street East, and boasts 9500 square feet of floor space. On its ground floor, guests can explore the timepieces from Franck Muller’s latest collections.
A personal lift leads to the first floor, where the manufacture’s complicated watches are housed. In addition, the first floor of the maison also carries creations from Backes & Strauss and Cvstos, two brands associated with Franck Muller. The former is the oldest diamond company in the world that has produced high-end luxury timepieces in partnership with Franck Muller since 2006, whilst the latter has a privileged relationship with Franck Muller owing to familial ties.
The top two floors of Maison Franck Muller are occupied by two gourmet restaurants. The second floor houses Francesco by Franck Muller, which offers Italian-Japanese fusion cuisine. Its signature dishes include sashimi octopus salad wagyu oxtail stew, and linguini topped with scallop au gratin.
Its sister restaurant, Eighteen Sharp, is located on the maison’s top floor and serves contemporary Chinese cuisine with a western twist. Diners’ choices include baked prawns with French mustard seed and honey lemon sauce, and Bamboo Glory – a smorgasbord of delights including shredded abalone, Japanese wagyu, and crabmeat garnished with caviar and cauliflower.
