Chef Thomas Cruise Presents New French Menu At Brasserie Les Saveurs
Brasserie Les Saveurs, the signature restaurant of The St. Regis Singapore, welcomes new Chef de Cuisine, Thomas Cruise. Growing up in Canada, Chef Thomas has been crafting European favourites for over 10 years in renowned dining establishments in Canada and the United Kingdom. While Cruise isn’t looking to change the restaurant’s focus on classic French fare accented with contemporary touches, he’s brought new dishes to the fore, illustrated through a la carte and degustation selections.
Thank you The St. Regis Singapore for their invitation, I got to try some of Chef Thomas Cruise’s signature dishes. For entrée, we had the Duck Foie Gras ($28) and Poached Boston Lobster and Langoustine ($32). The former was such a sinful dish with delicately prepared “au torchon”, served with butter brioches, schnapps-marinated peaches and roasted pistachios. The smooth texture was easy on the palette and everyone on the table finished it. For an alternate taste, delight in the Poached Boston Lobster and Langoustines Roulade, masterfully wrapped with mango and paired with shaved daikon and salmon roe. The ingenious use of Mango gives the lobster meat an added refreshing touch.
Perfect for special occasions, relish in the perennial favourite Lobster Bisque ($26), served with fresh crab, dill, thyme-scented crouton and radishes. It is really the embodiment of a perfect, old fashioned bisque – thick, full-bodied with a little swirl of cream on top. The result is a broth that has oomph and flavor, with a rich and velvety texture.
The main I enjoyed most is the Grilled Lamb Cutlet ($46), which uses high quality milk-fed lamb cuts with bell pepper ragout, polenta galette, roast garlic and Provencal olive sauce. No it doesn’t have a gamey taste and it is cooked till a perfect doneness with good proportions of lean and fat around it.
Another main was the Butter-Sealed Dover Sole Fillet ($63), served with seared potatoes, brown butter, parsley and capers. Fish and butter go very well, in moderation of course. Actually butter goes well with everything, from bakes to coffee to seafood! I like how the chef goes light on butter so we can still taste the essence of the fish. The menu also has a few Vegetarian options, such as the Truffle Ravioli ($34). The combination of truffle infused ricotta cheese ravioli and mushroom cream sauce provides a rich explosion of flavours.
Other than the à la carte menu, Brasserie Les Saveurs also offers a dinner Degustation menu (5-course at $148++/person, 7-course at $168++/person) and The St. Regis Connoisseur Dinner experience, which includes a choice of mains and a wide spread of hors d’oeuvres and dessert ($73++/person).
