Raffles Singapore unveiled its new line-up of dining experiences, which will combine the hotel’s culinary traditions with contemporary dining concepts by celebrity chefs. When the hotel reopens, guests will have four new dining options to choose from: BBR by Alain Ducasse, La Dame de Pic, yi by Jereme Leung, and Butcher’s Block.
BBR by Alain Ducasse represents an evolution of the former Bar & Billiard Room experience and will feature chef Ducasse’s first Mediterranean sharing and grill concept in the world. Staying true to its predecessor, dining at BBR by Alain Ducasse will be accompanied by a lively bar scene. Anne-Sophie Pic, one of the world’s top female chefs with three Michelin stars, will make her debut in Asia with the opening of La Dame de Pic in Raffles Singapore; and guests at yi by Jereme Leungcan can indulge in contemporary Chinese dishes. While at the property’s new steakhouse, Butcher’s Block, resident meat specialists will give guests personal recommendations based on their individual tastes. Signature dining experiences that have become popular throughout the 130-year history of Raffles Singapore are also returning with enhancements. These venues include the Tiffin Room, Long Bar, The Lobby, Writers Bar, Raffles Courtyard, and Ah Teng’s Cafe.
“For more than 100 years the dining venues at Raffles Singapore have been recognised as an integral part of the vibrant and ever changing local bar and dining scene, exciting the local community as well as city guests alike. Continuing with our tradition and commitment of the highest level of friendly, engaging and anticipatory service, we are more than excited to introduce concepts with partner chefs, who have a reputation of operating successful venues around the world, while at the same time, creating culinary experiences that are new and distinct to Singapore,” said general manager Christian Westbeld in press materials.
The iconic heritage hotel is now in its final restoration phase and will remain fully closed until its planned reopening in the first quarter of 2019.
