We’ve got something very exciting to look forward to with Pirata Group’s self-contained all-day-dining destination The Sixteenth in Quarry Bay, set to open in the second half of 2021.

We’ve long been fans of Pirata Group’s stylish yet affordable and approachable restaurant concepts – from pasta specialist Pici’s many branches around town, to modern Japanese eatery Honjo in Sheung Wan, to newly opened (and stunning!) Italian bakery and café Pane e Latte in Stanley.

Newcomer The Sixteenth will house four distinct dining concepts under one roof in a 18,000-square-foot space seating 400 diners. Headliner La Favorita is described as a “flamboyant and celebratory venue of quintessential 1980s Sicilian dining experiences” – since we never dined in Sicily in the 1980s, we don’t know quite what to expect with this one, but it certainly sounds like a hoot, and knowing that Pirata Group co-founder Christian Talpo and Corporate Chef Andrea Viglione are both Italian, we can expect a big degree of authenticity, as is already displayed at the restaurant group’s Italian eateries, Pane e Latte, Pirata, Pici and The Pizza Project. Tempo Tempo is an extension of La Favorita, a quirky outdoor terrace bar.

Next, we move to the Japanese side of the spectrum. TMK Funk & Rolls is a disco-themed version of the group’s fun and edgy TMK temakaria concepts (Rap & Rolls in Wanchai and Punk & Rolls in Sheung Wan), focusing on creative Japanese handrolls. Finally, there’s Honjokko, a sushi-focused offshoot of the group’s Honjo, set in a contemporary, intimate space.

As we get more deets about the opening of The Sixteenth, as well as each venue, we’ll keep you posted!
