April 2021: Dining Vision assisted Il Bel Pease Group in the opening of Il Bel Paese Italian Express in East
Tsim Tsa Tsui. The chain of restaurants and grocery stores, in Hong Kong since 2001, reopened in 2020 6 units with locations in Central Hong Kong and Discovery Bay. Dining Vision led the projects and assisted the owning company from concept development all
the way to the successful openings, through kitchen, retail and dining areas design, decor elements selection, food and beverage offering, hiring and strategic planning. The grocery stores are a lot fresher, with a brighter, more inviting and approachable
retail areas, ice cream corners and huge vertical cheese and cold cuts fridges right at the entrance. We wanted to re-look at an Italian grocery store concept, not formal and intimidating but rather engaging and conversational. At same time the restaurants
serve authentic Italian food in welcoming indoor and outdoor areas.
