Dutch chef Richard van Oostenbrugge of two-Michelin-starred Bord’Eau Restaurant Gastronomique in Amsterdam is set to open Table65 — a playful take on fine dining that will rise out of the space of the now-shuttered Joel Robuchon Restaurant in Resorts World Sentosa.

This is the latest in a slate of openings towards the year-end and comes right after the announcement of chef Bjorn Frantzen’s new restaurant at Restaurant Andre’s former space.

Chef van Oostenbrugge’s Singapore venture will be themed after his newest restaurant named 212 — a cutting edge establishment in Amsterdam that sees a waiting list as long as three months since it opened in January 2018.

The concept? One of “fewer rules, more adventure,” where diners will sit around a long chef’s table that snakes around the kitchen counter and soak in a gastronomic spectacle of levitating creations and visual projections on dining plates.

Expect contemporary European dishes with sensible use of local produce from Singapore’s farms as chef van Oostenbrugge’s signature creations like the ‘Os a Moelle’ veal tartare with smoked herring, bone marrow and cockles.

The chef who was last here to headline the Art at Curate series of dinners in 2017 is best remembered for his ‘Green Apple’ dessert where a transparent glass bubble made of sugar encasing a core of apple sorbet with chocolate seeds sit on a disc of puff pastry.

“When I first participated in the Art at Curate series here in 2017, I was delighted to find a strong foodie culture in Singapore,” says the chef. “This time, gourmands will step into a progressive new dining experience that eschews all stereotypical fine-dining formalities and introduces free-flowing and spontaneous interaction with the culinary team.”

Table65 at Resorts World Sentosa is set to open on December 2018.
