The Overview

The Place A sweeping amber-hued ceiling sculpture sets the tone for this boldly modern dining room designed by Adam Tihany, hinting at the culinary artistry in the kitchen. Situated on too low a floor to command views of pulsating Central, the restaurant opts instead for intimacy: warm lighting, rounded ebony armchairs, gleaming mahogany wall panels and soft champagne banquettes.

The Food Two-Michelin-starred Dutch chef Richard Ekkebus is a master of invention, using top-quality international ingredients to create French-inspired but utterly original dishes. Standouts include Dungeness crab in "five textures and four temperatures" ranging from hot bisque to ice cream, and wild Tasmanian salmon smoked at your table and served with kyuri cucumber and avocado. Playful treats, like the delectable "lollipop" of foie gras coated in raspberry-and-beetroot gelée, keep tastebuds titillated between courses, while the legendary French cheese platter—which includes such rarities as époisse de Bourgogne and livarot from Normandy—is the perfect way to finish off a meal.
