PAPI Makes Its Grand Return to Hong Kong
Esteemed Restaurateur Benjamin Lung Brings Back the
Well-loved Restaurant Serving Authentic Italian Cuisine
(Hong Kong, 6 December 2017) – Popular Italian restaurant PAPI is taking the town by storm again with a brand new location in Fashion Walk, Causeway Bay unveiling in mid-December, as acclaimed restaurateur Mr. Benjamin Lung returns to Hong Kong’s dining business to remind gourmands of his distinctive culinary philosophy and heartwarming authentic Italian delicacies.
Known for his love and passion for Italian cuisine, Benjamin has been a veteran restaurateur for over 30 years, with a dedication to advocate the Italian gastronomy and lifestyle to Hong Kong people. With a myriad of esteemed Italian restaurants including Isola, Gaia Ristorante and Va Bene under his belt, he had founded a restaurant empire in the past, spreading the pursuit of la Dolce Vita across the entire city.
Benjamin developed his love for food at a young age during his time abroad, but it was Italy’s dining culture and cuisine that impressed him the most. He believes that food doesn’t have to be fancy, but has to be of high quality and served with impeccable yet friendly service, which can bring people together and put a smile on their faces.
Much to many Italophiles’ delights, he chose to come out of his retirement to bring back PAPI, a staple Italian restaurant that encapsulates the spirit of the country’s culture – a small plate dining to table to share comforting food with friends and loved ones.
PAPI, meaning “Daddy” and “Grandpa” in Italian, provides diners from all walks of life a warm and friendly environment to truly enjoy, indulge and share-in a hearty meal with family and friends. The successful restaurant concept makes its way to Causeway Bay this time, with a two-storey location at the prestigious Fashion Walk unveiling in mid-December to delight every Italian cuisine lover in town.
At PAPI, diners can enjoy a casual and unpretentious dining experience that is true to the Italian culture. With a menu filled with classic comforting Italian dishes made with the freshest produce, the restaurant is perfect for gatherings with friends and family, where everyone can share a slice of happiness through delectable food.
For diners who have frequented restaurants founded by Benjamin, they will be greeted by many familiar faces at PAPI, as some of his most loyal chefs and restaurant staffs return with him as well to recreate the memorable moments with consistent quality food and service.
“PAPI perfectly represents what I think Italian cuisine truly means – simple, unpretentious, yet comforting and bringing people together. I am very excited about the return of PAPI, as I hope it can give Hong Kong people a place to enjoy not only authentic Italian cuisine, but also the Italian way of life,” says Benjamin.
