BELON is a neo-Parisian bistro showcasing French-rooted yet locally influenced cooking. Dishes are created with the best available ingredients in the form of well-executed basics made from scratch. Reminiscent of the dynamic food scene found in Paris' 11th arrondissement, BELON presents a refreshing genre of French cuisine in a pared-down SoHo space that allows the restaurant’s sincere approach to food to shine.
BELON was awarded one star in Michelin Guide 2019 and 2020 and has jumped from 40 to 4 on Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants between its debut in 2018 and 2020.
After 20 years in iconic culinary institutions, Matthew Kirkley brings his passion and dedication for his craft to BELON. He has worked in the world’s finest kitchens, leading Chicago’s L2O and COI in San Francisco to two and three MICHELIN Star status’ respectively. He was then honoured to stand on the culinary world’s biggest stage, representing Team USA at the Bocuse d’Or 2019. It is Kirkley’s precise execution and attention to detail that continues to propel BELON on its climb for excellence.
