St Regis Brasserie Les Saveurs Has New French Chef and Menu; SPG Triple Benefits and Starwood Hotel 3D2N Holiday Giveaway!

Hey guys, this is going to be a busy post - three items in one! All related to the Starwood Group.

1) Introducing the new French brasserie dishes at St Regis Singapore, specially added to the menu

2) Sharing the Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) Triple Benefits at all participating Starwood hotel restaurants; and

3) Giving away a 3D2N weekend stay for two at Plaza Athenee Bangkok (A Royal Méridien Hotel), Thailand, plus dining vouchers! Contest open to anyone around the world, not just Singapore residents.

Let me start with the food - there's now more reason than ever to head to Brasserie Les Saveurs at St Regis Singapore. No, not just because the new chef is eye candy (some have commented he looks like the French version of Christopher Reeves), but because the menu has got classic French dishes, done with modern flair.

UPDATE 2015: this chef has left, and most of the dishes have changed.

The amuse bouche we had (right, iPhone Instagram shot) is hearty and addictive - potato and soy espuma with grilled wagyu tenderloin on skewer. The light savoury concoction is so tasty when mopped up with the rustic starter bread too. Gosh, I hope they make this a regular amuse bouche, the way L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon keeps its parmesan foam and foie gras starter. Please?

Salade Niçoise
Salade Niçoise (S$36++) 
Black-pepper-seared yellow fin tuna, mesclun leaves, quail eggs, marinated anchovies, green beans, and Kalamata olives.

This is a really hearty portion, and truly a meal on its own. Crisp greens paired with what seems to be sashimi grade tuna seared just lightly on the outside.

Bouillabaisse Façon Les Saveurs
Bouillabaisse Façon Les Saveurs (S$19++) 
Fisherman's seafood stew slow-simmered with fennel and saffron.

If you love seafood, you'll like the rich stock here that's been reduced to a potent broth. Adorned with mussels, squid, clams, fish, shrimp, this classic French soup is satisfyingly comforting here. It's served with a wicked aioli and toast (background).

Le Homard Thermidor - lobster thermidor
Le Homard Thermidor (S$75)
Boston lobster flamed with cognac, mushroom béchamel sauce and gratinée gruyere

Decadence on a plate. The lobster' body is buried under a mountain of creamy cheesy goodness with diced mushrooms, and the large claws are battered and fried. We had no room for the few pieces of greens.

But to prime rib...we could not say no.

Chef de Cuisine Antoine Bonnet has over 20 years in preparing contemporary French cuisine
Here's the chef carving the incredible Côte De Boeuf from the Gueridon Trolley. You can indicate what doneness you prefer, and he will select the portion to match.

Côte De Boeuf - Australian prime rib carved from Gueridon Trolley
Côte De Boeuf (S$48++)
Australian beef prime rib (medium well).

Good golly, this is so good even when you are already full! Yes, once in a while, you have to give yourself a treat.

Le Gâteau À La Banane
Le Gâteau À La Banane (S$14)
Banana mousse cake and apricot compote, mango salsa, banana and ginger ice cream

A light and non-fussy dessert - the banana mousse cake is sponge-like and goes perfectly with the ice cream.

Yuanyang drink specially concocted for me!
Service at the St Regis is also heartwarming. When I joked that I needed both coffee and tea, the staff offered to make me a "yuanyang" (coffee-tea mixed drink popular in Hong Kong cafes). Voila! A French-style iced tea-coffee.
