There’s an old school formality about dining within the rarefied confines of Singapore’s most famous grande dame of heritage hotels (opened in 1887) and that’s completely as it should be. But this elegant new resident, in the form of Michelin Three Star, Valence superstar Anne-Sophie Pic brings with it a dining room that is at once bold, beautiful and packed with feminine charm.
Pic's cooking boasts a lightness of touch that belies the creativity and complexity of her dishes. All her flavour combinations are thoroughly considered and burst with savoir-faire, bringing new experiences of rare depth to the plate.
Choose from a variety of special menus to get the most out of the experience: seabream from Kumamoto with Oscietra caviar (a lunchtime dish) or wild turbot and Melanosporum black truffle are typical. Alternatively there’s roasted pigeon, wagyu beef or a variety of pretty-as-a-picture salads. Signature berlingots are a fixiture and may come in the form of pasta parcels filled with French cheese fondue, almonds and sunflower seeds, and served with a herb-infused pea broth. Broths, jus and other infusions are a cornerstone of Pic's cooking adding wonderful depth of flavour to the cooking.
Wine-pairing is encouraged to inject added intensity and harmony to the experience, and we love the fact that guests are welcome to bring a bottle from their own collection and enjoy complimentary corkage when they purchase a bottle off the restaurant’s list.
