Dining at St Regis Singapore’s signature restaurant Brasserie Les Saveurs makes you feel like you are in Europe – chandeliers on high ceilings, grand-looking furniture, luxurious decors and a musical fountain just outside the windows.
On the weekend I was there, dinner became more enchanting with live jazz singing, a dining ‘luxury’ I do not see often nowadays except during wedding dinners. I feel myself being transported back to Europe, where live piano-playing and singer is common even in the mid-tier restaurants.
Enhancing the French experience, Brasserie Les Saveurs just welcomed a new Chef de Cuisine Antoine Bonnet, with more than 20 years of culinary experience, and expertise in contemporary French cuisine.
A 6 Course Degustation Delight Menu would set you back by $128, $208 per person with wine pairing, which to me is a worthwhile ‘investment’ if you need a special place for a romantic anniversary or birthday dinner.
We also hear that people do pop the “Will you marry me question?” at Brasserie Les Saveurs. There are two VIP booths if you are really planning of doing it here.
Chef Antoine Bonnet’s interpretation on the dishes appears to be generally classical, with a light touch of modernity. I was generally more impressed with the seafood dishes. The Bouillabaisse Facon Les Saveurs ($19) is an ensemble of seafood stew slow-simmered with fennel and saffron. The stew was of the right consistency and balance, appropriately bringing out the succulence of the fresh seafood.
The Le Homard Thermidor ($75 for ala carte), Boston lobster flamed with cognac, had a flavoured layered taste with mushroom béchamel sauce and the gratinee gruyere giving it a robust cheesy savour. This is a tasting portion, and the ala carte version does present the Boston lobster in its grandeur.
Other dishes we had included a Salade Nicoise ($36 for ala carte), Foie Gras Poele ($26), pan-seared duck foie gras with green apple and rhubard compote, “sauternes” reduction and brioche toast and Filet Mignon Sauce Au Poivre ($48), grilled tenderloin beef with truffles mashed potatoes, tiny green beans and peppercorn sauce.
Some people would assume French cuisine is all about being light, precise and elegant. Brasserie Les Saveurs presents a new menu which is generally richer with heavier flavours, in my humble opinion an in-between between the traditional French and nouvelle cuisine.
