Acclaimed French chef Anne-Sophie Pic, with seven Michelin stars under belt, will make her debut in Asia with the opening of French restaurant La Dame de Pic at Raffles Singapore on July 5, a month ahead of the hotel’s grand opening in August.
Located in the main building of the hotel, the 46-seater La Dame de Pic takes over the space that once was the Raffles Grill. The space has been designed by Champalimaud Design led by Alexandra Champalimaud, with soft pink hues and rich plums matched with grey clay tones and metallic accents. Taking centrestage in the restaurant is a gold chandelier composed of tiers of discs with laser-cut spades, a play on ‘La Dame de Pic’ which translates to ‘queen of spades’.
Signature dishes include berlingots (pasta parcels), cucumber with Oscietra caviar, Brittany lobster, and Tajima wagyu beef. The desserts menu will include white mille-feuille, Gariguette strawberry and rosat geranium, and Araguani chocolate mousse, among others. In addition, the extensive beverage menu features a wine list that leans towards the French regions, with a particular focus on Pic’s birthplace, the Rhône Valley.
A third-generation Michelin-star chef, Pic follows in the footsteps of her father and grandfather, hailing from a long lineage of chefs with the Pic family’s culinary heritage beginning since their first restaurant established in 1889.
There are two other La Dame de Pic restaurants in Paris and London.
