One-Ninety Restaurant @ Four Seasons Hotel Singapore - 3 Months Argentinian Takeover by Brasero and Florería Atlántico Pop-Up


Starting from August 1, 2023, an extraordinary gastronomic adventure awaits as the world-renowned mixologist Renato "Tato" Giovannoni, celebrated as one of the top 10 bartenders globally, and the seasoned hospitality maestro Alex Resnik, make their debut in the Garden City. They embark on a thrilling culinary journey with a three-month-long takeover of the Four Seasons Hotel Singapore, promising an unforgettable Argentinian culinary experience.

Brought to you from the bustling streets of Buenos Aires to the heart of Singapore, this South American brasserie pop-up at One-Ninety Restaurant and One-Ninety Bar will whisk diners away to the enchanting world of Argentina. Prepare to immerse yourself in the country's rich culinary traditions and vibrant atmosphere, making for an exceptional dining escapade.


The restaurant, Brasero Atlántico, serves up an à la carte dinner menu and a tantalising seven-course Chef's Table dinner experience at SGD 168 per person, thoughtfully curated by Chef Alex Resnik. It captures the essence of Argentinian cuisine with dishes ranging from the famous asado (Argentinian barbecue) to mouthwatering empanadas and much more.

Octopus Confit 4/5

Indulge in the sublime Octopus Confit ($42), a dish where every bite is a symphony of flavours and textures. The octopus has been lovingly slow-cooked for at least 4 hours, allowing it to reach the pinnacle of tenderness and softness. Bathed in a harmonious blend of coconut and olive oil, with subtle hints of cinnamon and fragrant orange peel, it's a culinary masterpiece that dances on your palate. Each bite is an exquisite journey through layers of flavour, showcasing the chef's dedication to perfection.

Veal Tongue "Pampa Style" 3.8/5

A unique preparation of Veal Tongue ($28) involves slow-cooking it in an acidic sauce for at least 3 hours alongside vegetable pickles, onions, and celery. Drizzled with criolla sauce and sprinkled with baby chervil and extra virgin olive oil, the dish brings out the tender flavours of veal tongue.


Empanada 3.8/5

Two delightful Empanadas graced our table - Ossobuco ($15) and Leek ($10). These savoury pastries are filled with mouthwatering ingredients. The Ossobuco version features braised shank slow-cooked with vegetables for 8 hours, while the Leek empanada combines leeks, onions, and garlic sautéed with butter and provolone cheese for a rich and cheesy filling.

Aged Provoleta Cheese 4.2/5

The Aged Provoleta Cheese ($28) is heated until it becomes irresistibly soft, melty, and slightly browned on top. The ageing process intensifies its flavour, offering a combination of sharp, nutty, and slightly fruity notes. It's beautifully complemented with Calabria oregano and criolla sauce.

Frog Legs “A la Provenzal” 3.8/5

The Frog Legs "A la Provenzal" ($28) presents tender frog legs from France sautéed with roasted fingerling potatoes, garlic, butter, sage, and a splash of white wine. The result is moist and tender frog legs, although I preferred a richer sauce.


Lomo Tenderloin 4.5/5

The Lomo Tenderloin ($65, 350g) is perfectly grilled. It acquires a captivating smokiness. Paired with chimichurri sauce, it's an explosion of succulent flavours. The chimichurri sauce adds its own zesty, herbaceous essence.

Beets Salad 4.2/5

The Beets Salad ($18) combines crunchy quinoa, potato puree, soft-boiled egg, and fresh beetroot tossed with olive oil. The beetroot offers a subtle earthy sweetness, making it a well-rounded side dish.

Fennel 3.5/5

The Fennel Salad ($18) comprises finely sliced fennel paired with watercress, grapefruit, and orange segments drizzled with a house-made lemon olive oil vinaigrette. The result is a refreshing salad with a tangy finish.

Dulce de Leche Flan 4/5

The Dulce de Leche Flan ($18) is a smooth and creamy creme caramel pudding with a layer of clear caramel sauce, served with mascarpone cheese cream and nuts. The balance between sweetness and creaminess is perfected when enjoyed with the mascarpone and textured nuts.

Valrhona Chocolate Lava Cake 4.2/5

The Valrhona Chocolate Lava Cake ($24) is a chocolate lover's dream. The chocolate lava cake comes with a liquid yerba mate chocolate centre, served with a scoop of ice cream. The cake is moist and slightly crisp on the outside, while the yerba mate infusion adds an interesting twist to the classic chocolate lava cake.

Brasero Atlántico truly transports diners to the vibrant streets of Argentina, offering an exciting culinary journey filled with traditional flavours and innovative twists.
