Till thirty first August 2023, Brasseire Les Saveurs is reworked into The Astor Grill; a pop-up restaurant impressed by the nice chophouses of early twentieth century New York. For each lunch and dinner, The Astor Grill presents its personal menu that includes steaks in addition to seafood.
Getting into the restaurant, the appear and feel continues to be the identical because the Brasserie that I’ve grown fairly acquainted with. Given St. Regis’ New York heritage, the interiors in addition to the dimly lit nature of the restaurant might very effectively match properly with a steakhouse idea.
Starters such because the Grilled King Prawns A la Plancha (S$39) with avocado, peach and beef coronary heart tomatoes give a great prelude to the meal that’s to return. The prawns have been plump, with the fruit combination giving it a candy juxtaposition.
One other starter I attempted was the King Crab Salad (S$52) which was relatively densely full of shredded crab meat. The dishes I had at The Astor Grill have been all relatively huge, and each is finest shared with a eating companion or a number of.
As a steakhouse, it will maybe be a disgrace to return right here and by no means get to attempt any of the meats. The Astor Grill has not less than 7 completely different cuts of beef to select from. The choice ranges from major cuts like rib eye, striploin and tenderloin to secondary cuts like skirt or rump.
In case you are coming as a bunch of three or extra and don’t know which lower to attempt, you may take a look at their Butcher’s Platter (S$200). Every serving comes with 250 grams of Striploin US Black Angus, 220 grams of Skinny Skirt Australian Wagyu and 220 grams of Rump Cap Tasmania Angus.
The meats have been grilled properly and have been delectably tender. We have been made to decide on our most well-liked steak knife previous to serving. In all honesty, any knife would have been ok to slice the buttery texture of the steak. Of the three cuts, my favourite was the skirt. Regardless of being a secondary lower, I liked the superb mixture between lean meat and fats within the wagyu. Regardless of being simply flippantly seasoned with salt, the flavors merely exploded in my mouth with the fantastic distinction between the charred exterior and the fragrant and juicy inside.
Whereas steaks are the specialty right here, they do serve a wide range of “various” mains as effectively for non-beef eaters. Choices embody Grilled Boston Lobster (S$88), Butterflied Spring Rooster (S$44) and Potato Gnocchi (S$32). Those that wish to impress and are in a bunch of not less than 4 to five folks can thought of the Grilled Entire Turbot (S$298). Weighing a large 2kg, this flat fish is bound to generate oohs and ahhs particularly because the chef presents the dish to diners by means of a dramatic unveiling with smoke billowing out of the lid.
Desserts are fairly affairs with the likes of a deconstructed Lemon Tart (S$22) served as a sphere with the lemon custard contained in the agency casing or the Astor Tiramisu (S$22) which can be deconstructed with espresso-soaked ladyfingers, espresso gelato and crispy gold crumbs surrounding the cream.
Among the many candy endings, I used to be significantly extra inclined in direction of their Sticky Toffee Pudding (S$22). The relatively mild and bouncy pudding was a spotlight and also you’d wish to smother as a lot of the accompanying burnt toffee cream on it for added sweetness.
