Just as striking as the architecture at The Opposite House is our collection of uniquely individual dining and drinking experiences. Like exhibits in a gallery, each restaurant and bar offers a different perspective and story – as told through food and drink.
In 2020, our Michelin-starred contemporary Chinese restaurant Jing Yaa Tang and modern-day salon and cocktail bar Union will be joined by two new and intriguing dining destinations from opposite ends of the Silk Road – Superfly and Frasca.
Inspired by Chengdu’s hip street culture and pop art influences, Superfly is a retro-casual Sichuan kitchen and everyday neighbourhood hangout serving unpretentious dishes, bold flavours and playful drinks with a twist.
With a focus on authentic ingredients and recreating childhood recipes, Chef Li Dong dishes up Sichuan comfort foods like spicy Bobo Chicken and homemade Tian Shui Noodles in a casual-cool setting. These dishes can be perfectly paired with craft beers from Great Leap Brewing that are flavoured with teas, spices, honeys, fruit and vegetables as well as an eclectic cocktail list featuring concoctions like the Arctic Rickey and S.L.S G&T which infuse local drinks with Chinese gins, herbs and botanicals.
A world apart but equally passionate about authentic flavours is our second new dining destination Frasca, a casual-chic eatery deeply rooted in regional Italian traditions.
Named after the symbolic branches used to welcome passers-by in Northeast Italy, Frasca is led by Chef Marino D’Antonio whose cooking style reflects his Italian heritage and obsessive dedication to artisanal ingredients, time-honoured techniques and heart-warming dishes.
The first Frasca opened at The Middle House, Shanghai in 2018 and this second Beijing outpost brings the best of Italy to the table. Signature dishes include traditional Roman Pinsa, a nutrient-rich alternative to pizza as well as La Milanese, pan-fried veal chop served with cherry wood potatoes and Linguine alle Astice, Boston lobster with cherry tomatoes and Sardinian bottarga. All enjoyed with warm hospitality in an inviting dining room.
In our House of Art, dining and drinking experiences are thematically connected by a shared passion for fresh local produce and seasonal ingredients, while inviting visitors to appreciate different points-of-view on culture, cuisine and craft.
