La Maison Fatien
Nestled in a four-story pre-war conservation shop house along Duxton Road, La Maison Fatien has its roots in Beaune, Burgundy, where the Fatien family runs a bed-and-breakfast called Chez les Fatien, alongside a wine-merchandising business under Maison Fatien Père & Fils. Fittingly, the Singapore outpost also plays the part with rough-cut brick walls adorned with French-inspired posters. The Fatiens have crafted a tight yet perfectly executed menu of all-time French bistro standards: think pan-seared duck liver with caramelized apple, confit de canard and a daily cocotte special that, during our visit, featured a heart-warming braised lamb shank with French beans and roasted new potatoes on the side.
T+L TIP Maison Fatien Père & Fils produces only 15,000 bottles of wines annually, a small fraction of which are exported to Singapore. Don’t miss their house Bourgogne pinot noir, a hot favorite among local diners.
