Four Seasons Hotel Singapore ushers diners into a lush, botanical dining experience in the cool shelter of the terrace, a thoughtful extension of One-Ninety Bar designed for relaxed socials inspired by the nearby Singapore Botanic Gardens, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Complementing Garden@One-Ninety is a menu by Chef de Cuisine Pierre Barusta that is keenly focused on spotlighting market-fresh produce. Highlights include a seasonal seafood tower, a celebration of ocean-fresh flavours with Maine lobster, oysters, king crab, mussels, prawns and Hokkaido scallops; succulent lobster roll with lime crème fraîche; char-grilled T-bone steak “Fiorentina” (grain fed MB4); miso chicken with sesame togarashi; and Scottish salmon, shimeji, spinach, kale in yuzu-soy broth.
Distinctly, Garden@One-Ninety offers a wide selection of creative, wholesome plant-based cuisine. These include signatures such as Vietnamese summer rolls with green mango, papaya and avocado; garden burger with chickpea patty, semi-dried tomatoes, hummus spread, pita bread; charred cauliflower, almond pesto, celeriac and black truffle; and vanilla-soy panna cotta, homemade coconut ice cream.
The inclusive menu allows for enjoyable dining for all, including vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free preferences, and embraces the diversity and spectrum of personal dietary and lifestyle choices of today’s guests.
Bar manager and mixologist Gabriel Carlos of One-Ninety Bar lends his talent and craftsmanship, conjuring a trinity of threes - of punch bowls, botanical cocktails and zero-proof cocktails that are all equally delightful.
Get the party started with tropical punch bowl Maracuy,a which dazzles with bold vodka, apricot brandy, passionfruit and peach clarified milk punch topped with prosecco and a floral finish for a sunny imbibe.
Botanical craft cocktails Theatrum Botanicum and Flor De Jamaica tantalizs with a delicious spirit-forward bouquet. Gin-forward with house-made herb syrup and clarified lemon juice, Theatrum Botanicum pays tribute to botanist John Parkinson who catalogued more than 3,000 species of herbal varietals, whilst vodka-based Flor De Jamaica is a bold interpretation of Agua de Jamaica, and is concocted with roselle and strawberry shrub and classic Italian bitters.
Proving that zero-proofs can be pleasurable too are creations such as the Guilin. Zesty and complex, the citrus forward distillate is made with a blend of three types of orange and uplifting spices of ginger and lemongrass, paired elegantly with house-made osmanthus and pineapple syrup, London Essence bitter orange and elderflower tonic for a guilt-free treat.
It’s “party-thyme” with the opening of Garden@One-Ninety! To celebrate, complimentary char-grilled meats and plant-based skewers will be grilled a la minute and served with any beverage enjoyed in Garden@One-Ninety from now until July 31, 2021, 5:30 to 7:30pm.
One-Ninety, the modern Asian brasserie at the Four Seasons Hotel Singapore, is now open after a botanical transformation. The new dining destination in town is poised to tease and please with its Asian twist on wholesome Provençal cuisine.
The ambience of the restaurant is an extension of the heritage-botanical inspiration that very recentlytransformed the hotel’s rooms and suites. The same tropical influences now effortlessly infuses the menus that feature fresh, seasonal and daily-sourced produce.
“The light, natural colours and textures echo our lush surrounds while feature Peranakan tiles celebrate our unique heritage,” says Peter Draminksy, Regional Vice-President and General Manager. “The elevated all- day dining space pairs perfectly with One-Ninety’s exciting menu designed to introduce new and unique epicurean experiences that delight, furthering our mission to ensure superior dining, exceptional service and, of course, authentic Four Seasons charm.”
Newly minted Restaurant Chef Kamarl John leads the culinary brigade and was previously from Four Seasons London at Ten Trinity Square. Most recently he was with Adrift by Michelin by celebrity Chef David Myers, in Singapore. Having spent the last year in the city state and around Asia, Chef Kamarl is constantly fascinated by the vibrant food heritage of Asia and even more so with the Lion City. From the nation’s instrumental role as a key entrepôt on the Spice Route in the 17th Century which naturally made it a melting- pot of culture and cuisine, even to this day.
Showcasing the culinary craftsmanship driving the cuisine at One-Ninety, every meal begins with Artisan Sourdough with Seaweed Butter. Sourced from artisanal mills in Hokkaido Japan, the flour is only produced upon each order. Ground by hand and blended to our specifications, each loaf is baked fresh daily in their very own ovens.
“My Philosophy when it comes to food is to use quality ingredients and let these shine by balancing them with clean fresh flavours. This creates an experience where the guest leaves happy and appreciative of natural,wholesome cuisine that excites and comforts all at once,” shares Chef Kamarl.
These are a few of their signature items on the menu:
Foie Gras Toast, Black Winter Truffle - A classic French combination with Creamy Foie Gras & fragrant Périgord Black Winter Truffles on lightly toasted Brioche.
Seasonal Seafood Tower - Featuring some of the finest quality seafood from Southeast Asia, Japan & North Atlantic Ocean in Europe. Highlights include Hokkaido Scallops, King Crab, Blue Fin Tuna and responsibly farmed Maine Lobster in Singapore. Served with their house-made sauces such as Calamansi Aioli & Young Ginger Vinaigrette, which are infused with some of Singapore’s mostrecognizable ingredients.
Blue Lobster with Yuzu Kosho Butter - Wild Blue Lobsters caught in the North Atlantic Ocean waters between England and France are pan roasted then served with homemade cultured Yuzu Kosho Butter which is poured table side.
Snapper Bouillabaisse, Spicy Daikon, Lemon Grass - This traditional Provençal fish of market-fresh roasted Red Snapper, Clams, Tiger Prawns and Bouchot Mussels in a broth of potatoes, garlic, ripe tomatoes and a bouquet of herbs and spices, is made extra special with spicy daikon and lemon grass.
Iberico Pork Presa, Star Anise, Pineapple Chutney, Celeriac Purée - The Presa is a specialized muscle within the shoulder that is tender and juicy. The marbling of fat that runs through the IberianPork has earned it a reputation as the “Wagyu of Pork” and its high concentration of healthy, oleic acids is balanced with sweet and sour pineapple chutney spiced with star anise, complemented further by celeriac purée.
