The team behind Belon have announced that the preeminent French bistro will be temporarily closing come October and reopening in the winter in a new Soho location, with a string of other new features to boot. Upon the relocation, the new Belon will welcome new head chef Matthew Kirkley who has worked at a number of Michelin-starred establishments including Hong Kong's very own Amber, where he worked as chef de cuisine with Richard Ekkebus, as well as L20 and COI restaurant in the US.
With a new and upgraded kitchen, the new restaurant aims to bring out the stellar quality of French food with a local sensibility that Belon fans have become accustomed to over the years.

The new location will also have a more mature and modern aesthetic designed by award-winning firm Joyce Wang Studio. With so much going on in the city right now, foodies can at least look forward to welcoming the new and revamped neo-Parisian bistro to its new Soho location.
