Situated on Ice House street, this new restaurant 2.0 is a creation by lifestyle and food brand Lifestyle Federation. The idea is to be much like a private members club that anyone can join. Either call the make a reservation if already a The First Floor (TFF) member, or walk in and sign up to become one. They have a restaurant with seasonal, fine dining dishes as well as a number of products on display to purchase in addition to a central kitchen and work bench which diners can eat on or can be rented out for private use.
The First Floor by Lifestyle Federation is also seeking to introduce a whole new concept named “edutainment”, a word they coined themselves which means a mix of educational and entertainment experiences across the food scene in Hong Kong.
From Monday to Saturday there is a regular restaurant in operation which offers contemporary continental cuisine using produce and top-notch ingredients sourced around the world. This comes from first class suppliers who provide the likes of Jamón ibérico from Spain and white truffles from Alba.
The food is seafood centric, though due to change with supply, drawing on elements of French and Japanese cookery. Head chef Kit Cheung knows his fine western cuisine, having built his career in Michelin starred restaurants such as Caprice and Spoon by Alain Ducasse. He honours techniques learned in these kitchens and applies creativity to creating something unique at The First Floor by Lifestyle Federation with a focus on fresh produce and seasonality.
