Les Amis

After undergoing a S$2.5 million makeover and acquiring a new chef (whose predecessor was, coincidentally, Gunther Hubrechsen), this much-venerated establishment reopened to much fanfare last September.

The Overview

Gone is the restaurant's former stately décor. In its place is a much lighter - though discreetly opulent - look: burgundy walls, marble floors and Venetian chandeliers.

Chef Thomas Mayr has worked with the likes of gastronomic giants Charlie Trotter and David Bouley. Hailing from the German-speaking region of South Tyrol in northern Italy, Mayr freely borrows from his native cuisine as well as gastronomic traditions closer to the neighborhood, as displayed in a delightful amuse-bouche that consisted of a thin crepe rolled into a cone and filled with ikura (salmon roe), toro and horseradish mousse.
