The buzz: The Sultan Hotel’s new restaurant is a 40-seat French eatery (in the space formerly occupied by Moroccan establishment Pasha) helmed by chef Jason Wong, who served for seven years as head chef of Bistro Petit Salut at Holland Village.
The vibe: Outfitted with velvety upholstered chairs, purple chandeliers and pretty mosaic-tiled floors, the dimly lit spot is rather romantic. It’s got all sorts of charming nooks and corners, with three distinct areas: The bar (which seats 10 in a little alcove), a deli counter and the main dining room.
The food: No surprises here, just rustic classics like pan seared frog legs with garlic butter ($18) and 40-garlic roasted whole chicken ($88). Desserts follow in the same vein, including profiteroles au chocolat ($12).
The drinks: The restaurant carries a wide selection of over 100 international wine labels (from $14); everything from fresh sauvignon blanc to sticky after-dinner ports.
Why you’ll be back: It’s a conveniently-located and pretty spot, just right for dates. Tuck into on a comforting pre-show dinner before heading upstairs to The Sultan Jazz Club.
