The French-inspired menu begins with Cured Salmon, crowned with a layer of mixed herbs yogurt, resting on a pomelo segment and slow-cooked octopus salad, interspersed with dollops of pumpkin purée for a mix of sweet, sour and refreshing.

Next, the Seafood Gather course includes Boston lobster, a pan-fried sea scallop, and braised abalone presented in a lobster bisque foam with dots of fennel jelly and fresh fennel fronds.

The main course sees Wagyu Beef two ways – a chestnut wood smoked M9 sirloin as well as 72-hour cooked beef ribs sprinkled with parmesan and enfolded into a French vol-au-vent pastry crust. A dribble of beef essence and carrot oil bring the duo together.
