July 2021 New Restaurants & Cafes
Casa Restaurant by Remy Lefebvre
Located at CHIJMES, Casa Restaurant by Remy Lefebvre is a contemporary woodfire gastronomic restaurant that reflects Remy’s years of constant travel, his deep affinity for nature and produce, and his art of cooking with woodfire in the traditional way – woven into amazing showpieces that tell his life story on a plate.
Inspired by his childhood and formative years as a chef, Remy celebrates the seasons through finely curated produce, highlighting seafood over meat and serving one land animal a day on rotation basis. Having lived in unspoiled places around the world, Remy seeks to preserve the natural environment and focuses on ingredients that are line-caught, responsibly sourced, traditionally farmed, organic and wild-foraged, and bio-dynamic. These are cooked with woodfire in the traditional way to produce flavours that are clean yet bold.

NAE:UM | new restaurant of Chef Louis Han
NAE:UM is the inaugural restaurant of Chef Louis Han presenting contemporary Seoul cuisine. In Korean, ‘Naeum’ is a literary description of a fragrance that brings back memories. And indeed, NAE:UM is awash in memories of Chef Louis’s youth in South Korea and his work in foreign lands.
Despite his relative youth, Chef Louis has 14 years of experience behind him. He trained for years in the Western tradition and worked in Seoul, Lebanon, Abu Dhabi, and Singapore, honing his expertise and forging lifelong friendships.
At NAE:UM, the progressive vibrancy of Seoul meets the flavours of folk traditions meets the rest of the world. Woven throughout is a sense of familiarity delivered through flavours layered and nuanced, new and coherent. The menus are episodic and showcase different food stories in Chef Louis’s personal journey.
