Brasserie Les Saveurs at St. Regis Hotel is on the top of my to visit list for a while and after several missed opportunities, I am glad that I finally visited the beautiful restaurant last week. At the same time taking the chance to check out the new ala carte menu from its new Chef de Cuisine, Antoine Bonnet who has more than 20 years of culinary experience in contemporary French cuisine.
Walking into the grand restaurant with chandeliers hanging down from the high ceiling, full floor to ceiling window with water fountain as the backdrop. The place is simply elegant, beautiful and stunning with its interior decoration.
Amuse Bouche 3.5/5
Starting with the Amuse Bouche is Pan Seared Scallop with Potato Espuma with sesame oil. A delightful glimpse into the new chef's approach of his interpretation of contemporary French cuisine.
Salad Nicoise 3.8/5
Next up is Salad Nicoise ($36). The bowl of salad comes with black pepper seared yellow fin tuna, mesclun leaves, quail eggs, marinated anchovies, green beans and kalamata olives. A nice refreshing and healthy to dinner.
Bouillabaisse Facon Les Saveurs 4.5
The Bouillabaisse Facon Les Saveurs ($19) is slow simmered with fennel and saffron. Each sip of the rich and robust fisherman's seafood stew felt like the waves after waves of the sea hitting the palate with the lovely medley of the sea.
Le Homard Thermidor 4.8/5
The Le Homard Thermidor ($75), a classic French dish is definitely the star of the night. The creamy mixture of cooked boston lobster meat is flamed with cognac, grantinee gruyere and served with a mushroom bechamel sauce.
Australian Prime Rib Carving Trolley 4.2/5
Served at table side on a craving trolley is the Australian Prime Rib ($48). The beautiful roasted meat was served with roasted potatoes and tomatoes on the side with either a wine reduction or horseradish sauce. I personally like pairing the flavoursome beef with pungency of the horseradish sauce.
Le Gateau A La Banane 3.5/5
Dessert was Le Gateau A La Banane ($14) which is banana mousse cake and apricot compote, mango salsa, banana and ginger ice cream. This is not my plate but SiHan's. SiHan who blogs at Fundamentally Flawed is flying off the next day to Sydney. SiHan who is a trained pastry chef is moving to Sydney to work. She will be missed and I look forward to her return as well as tasting her pastries.
