Fresh from his recent stint at The Carvery, executive chef Robert Chan has created a menu that is comfortingly nostalgic and showcases a timeless European repertoire, featuring starters like Steak Tartare, Veal Sweetbread, and Salmon Gravlax, with subtle updates that make the experience both familiar yet surprising. Take his spin on the Steak Tartare (S$24++), finely hand-chopped USDA beef - an example of impressive knife skills, carefully honed over time - mixed with the consummate red onions, gherkins, parsley and capers, is stacked with a crackly, battered poached egg, bringing a new dimension to the dish. The Veal Sweetbread (S$18++) is perfectly seasoned, pan-fried in butter; paired with an earthy ceps mushroom ragu and served in a delicately creamy pea soup.
For mains, the traditional lobster and fish pairing gets an indulgent upgrade with Prosciutto Ham wrapped Monkfish and Maine Lobster on Risotto in Armagnac Lobster Bisque (S$38++). Wrapped in a thin layer of prosciutto and pan seared, the monkfish is at once tender and substantial, plated up with butter poached lobster tail, and risotto in Armagnac bisque, where the Arborio grains are gently simmered in lobster broth and French butter, lending the dish a richer flavour. The Smoked Braised Black Angus Short Rib (S$30++) - browned and braised with red wine, carrots, celery, and onions for 8 hours in the oven, completely tenderises and soaks in all the delightful flavours of the sauce - is an all-time dinner favourite. Horseradish is pureed with potatoes to create a silky smooth, tangy side for the ribs and freshly roasted bone marrow completes the dish.
The gorgeous Dessert Selection from the Trolley - the restaurant’s take on guéridon service - brings a bit of flair and fun to round off the dining experience, featuring a rotation of house-made sweets including Spicy Mango, a mango mousse cake encased in a shell of white chocolate, bringing the heat with the addition of pink peppercorns; the Raspberry Lychee with Almond Cake, a tribute to the classic Ispahan, offers a burst of tartness from the raspberry and the light sweetness of the lychee in a single bite; and Camembert Cheesecake, which presents a twist to the traditional cream cheesecake, served alongside perennial favourites such as meringue, lemon tart, and more.
Chef Robert’s dedication to ensuring that each diner is brought on a journey through the classics, modernised with restraint, is evident through to the meal’s close.
