The Astor Grill @ St. Regis Singapore - A Pop-up Restaurant Inspired By The Heritage of St. Regis, New York


Nestled within the St. Regis Singapore, The Astor Grill is a pop-up dining experience that promises an unforgettable culinary journey from 1 June to 31 August 2023. This exclusive pop-up brings together premium cuts from renowned artisan suppliers and introduces bespoke dining rituals from the esteemed House of Astor in New York. Available for a la carte lunch and dinner at Brasserie Les Saveurs, The St. Regis Singapore, The Astor Grill offers a truly exquisite experience.

Assorted Bread Basket

To kickstart the gastronomic adventure, diners are treated to a complimentary Assorted Bread Basket featuring a delightful selection of Sourdough, Curry Leaves, and Seaweed-infused bread.

Amuse Bouche

The culinary journey begins with a tantalizing Amuse Bouche—grilled sourdough topped with Tomato and Iberico Ham. While a small morsel, it serves as a flavorful teaser to awaken the taste buds.

Traditional Beef Tartare 4/5

King Crab Salad 4.2/5

Grilled King Prawn 4.2/5

Impeccably crafted starters grace the menu, including the Traditional Beef Tartare ($30), King Crab Salad ($52), and Tiger Prawns 'A la Plancha' with Avocado, Peach, and Basil ($39). Each dish offers a unique combination of flavours and textures, making it difficult to choose a favourite. However, the grilled tiger prawns stand out with their sweet succulence, complemented by the fruity peach and creamy avocado.

Tomahawk Australia Angus Grass Fed 4.2/5

From the signature sharing cuts menu, we had the 1.4kg Australian Grass Fed Angus Tomahawk ($290) grilled over the custom-built parilla grill. The whole tomahawk will be presented on a steak trolley and carved tableside. Beautifully marbled texture, tender and succulent. A rich and robust full-bodied flavour enhanced with the rosemary aroma.

Striploin Japan Full Blood Wagyu A5 4.5/5, Bavette Australian Angus 4.8/5

For discerning palates, The Astor Grill offers artisanal cuts and monthly exclusives. We had the pleasure of savouring the Striploin Japan Full Blood Wagyu A5 500 Days Grain Fed ($170) and Bavette Australian Angus 200 Days Barley Fed ($62). Our table was divided in preferences, with some favouring the Japanese Wagyu for its exceptionally high marbling content, resulting in buttery tenderness. On the other hand, I found the Bavette more appealing, with its well-rounded beefy flavour and a slightly firmer bite, striking a perfect balance between tenderness and texture.

Oven Roasted Rack of Lamb 4.2/5

The menu also features non-steak options, such as the Oven Roasted Rack of Lamb ($76). Perfectly grilled, tender, and devoid of any gaminess, it is a delightful choice for those seeking an alternative to beef.

Grilled Whole Turbot 4.5/5

The Grilled Whole Turbot ($298) is ideal for sharing, and it impresses with its impeccable texture and flavours.

Lemon Tart 4.2/5

Astor Grill Tiramisu 4.5/5

To conclude the meal on a sweet note, The Astor Grill offers a selection of delectable desserts. The Lemon Tart ($22) is a perfect choice for a light and refreshing option. Those with a sweet tooth will delight in the Chocolate Mi-Cuit ($22) and Sticky Toffee Pudding ($22). However, my personal favourite is the Astor Grill Tiramisu ($22)—a deconstructed yet well-balanced rendition comprising espresso-soaked ladyfingers, coffee gelato, and crispy gold crumbs.

Chocolate Mi-Cuit 4/5

Sticky Toffee Pudding 4/5

The Astor Grill at St. Regis Singapore is a culinary haven that delights diners with its exquisite cuts, bespoke dining experiences, and impeccable flavours. Whether you're a steak aficionado or searching for a remarkable dining adventure, The Astor Grill will leave a lasting impression on your palate. There is even a value-for-money 3-course Set Lunch priced at $48.
