Located in the Main Building of Raffles Singapore, three Michelin-starred Chef Anne-Sophie Pic’s latest restaurant La Dame de Pic takes its place of honour at one of the hotel’s most recognised dining spaces.
Designed by the award-winning studio Champalimaud Design, the 46-seater fine-dining restaurant blushes in powder pinks, plums and soft grey. A contemporary chandelier of brass tiers with laser-cut spades — a nod to the restaurant’s name which means ‘queen of spades’ — lends a timeless elegance and romantic charm in the heritage space.
With La Dame de Pic, Raffles Singapore, Pic shares her star-studded approach to French fine-dining for the first time in Asia. It is here where diners can experience the legendary French chef’s graceful personality and culinary innovation through exquisite dishes and elegant service.
An Asian sensibility to ingredients and tastes sets Pic’s Singaporean outpost apart from sister establishments in Paris and London. At La Dame de Pic, Raffles Singapore, Pic’s protege Kevin Gatin serves as chef de cuisine and takes charge of executing in detail the culinary doyenne’s penchant for aromatic complexity and unique combinations of flavours.
Diners will find edible flowers and herbs in her vision of fine-dining French cuisine. Local inspirations are also woven in tastefully. Kuih Rose, or Chinese beehive cookies, serve as canapes, dotted with mushroom puree and edible flowers. Pic’s signature berlingots come with an Asian-inspired consomme made with fennel, lovage, absinthe and red Kampot pepper. For dessert is the White Mille-Feuille, a classic French dessert pictured as a minimalist white cube. Within it is an elegant construction of ginger flower cream, confit grapefruit and an emulsion of litsea cubeba (‘mountain pepper’ in Chinese). The kitchen is, of course, committed to serving the best ingredients available and the menu serves to reflect that with seasonal changes to dishes.
Pic’s modern approach is not just limited to cuisine. Fine-dining formalities are re-defined in this beautiful space. Diners will find intimate booths with sumptuous banquettes and soft lights. The customised wine cellar, manned by sommelier Hiromi Ohno, offers the best of French wines as well as a strong focus on the Rhône Valley (where Pic was born).
With elegance and fine-dining intertwined, La Dame de Pic, Raffles Singapore offers a refreshing dining experience to Raffles Hotel’s well-curated repertoire of restaurants.
La Dame de Pic, Raffles Singapore is open for lunch from 12pm to 1:45pm (last seating) and for dinner from 6:30pm to 9pm (last seating), every Tuesday to Saturday.
