When Avenue 87 opened its doors in September 2020, the restaurant celebrated the culmination of the friendship and the seamless synergy of co-Chef-Founders Glen Tay and Alex Phan. The modern Asian restaurant serves well-known dishes transformed by the memories, travels, and professional discourse of the two chefs. Almost a full year later, the reunited duo presents a brand-new tasting menu and a new bar.
The new tasting menu continues to deliver nostalgia with surprises from Chefs Glen and Alex's creative interpretations of their favourite dishes and flavours. Available in five and seven courses ($98++ and $142++ respectively), they showcase flavours that are meticulously extracted using contemporary techniques to create distinctive nuances and flavour profiles in each dish.
A new space at level 2, Lounge at Avenue 87, fulfils both chefs’ yearning of getting together with friends over drinks and snacks in the comfort of home. Much like a speakeasy bar, it is only accessible through the restaurant's back-end staircase.
Reflecting Glen and Alex’s preferences at the end of a long day at work, the menu features two drinks specially concocted by the two chefs, as well as classic cocktails that have remained their favourites through the years. Inspired by the Gin & Tonic, the refreshing Botanic ($21++) curated by Alex highlights familiar Asian profiles with Rojak Gin, Melati and Indian Tonic. The Jambu ($21++), a reimagined Cosmopolitan by Glen, combines butter vodka, sherry, rose apple, rose syrup and honey to offer the sweet and creamy flavours of bandung.
