Les Amis

 

Les Amis Restaurant is the sophisticated first-born of the Les Amis family. Founded on 15 March 1994, it is located in the heart of the Orchard Road shopping district. Since then, she has undergone several renovations; the most recent one in 2007 at a cost of S$2.5 million.

Designed by local architect, Mr. Tan Kay Ngee, the new Les Amis speaks volume about his classical and yet contemporary approach. From the exterior, Les Amis exudes sophistication and a certain city chic elegance with its irregular glass façade while the interior feel is one that stimulates the senses with a generous use of teak and yellow marble.

Les Amis has five private rooms within the restaurant – one on the first level and four on the mezzanine floor. The private room on the first level is also known as the Chef’s Table as it offers up to eight diners a view of the kitchen through a glass window. Of the four private rooms on the mezzanine floor, three of them can be opened up to form one long private dining room for bigger parties of up to 30 diners. Otherwise, the rooms can be partitioned up to accommodate anything from two to twelve diners individually. The last private room which sits six diners even has its own private door which opens out to an obscure walkway that leads directly to the car park lift- perfect for those who want ultimate privacy. All four private rooms are decorated with individual chandeliers, as well as antique dining tables and chairs imported from Britain. Booking of the rooms are subject to a minimum charge dictated by the restaurant.

Les Amis also boasts two temperature-controlled wine cellars which house the restaurant’s S$5 million wine collection. Its 2000-label wine list has been a recipient of the Wine Spectator’s Grand Award - one of the only three Grand Award winners in Asia - since 1996. While most of these wines are from France, guests who wish to enjoy New World wines will nonetheless have an interesting and diverse selection to choose from.

The restaurant accommodates a total of seventy diners - forty on the first floor and the rest on the mezzanine level. Upon sitting, all diners are greeted by J.L. Coquet porcelain, Zwiesel glasses, Christofle silverware as well as Casa Bianca linen napkins and tablecloths. Precious artworks by such renowned Chinese artists as Chen Wen Hsi, Wang Kun and Ai Xuan adorn the walls of the restaurant.

Keeping to its philosophy of offering the ultimate in fine-dining experiences, Les Amis Restaurant places emphasis on both exquisite cuisine and gorgeous wines. The cuisine style is light and contemporary, with a focus on the natural flavours of the ingredients used to ensure a delightful complement to our local climate and palates.

The chef helming the kitchen is Armin Leitgeb. Of Austrian descent, he worked his way through the ranks with several Michelin starred chefs in Europe; including the then 3 star Michelin Pourcel brothers of Jardin des Sens in Montpellier, 3 star Michelin Paul

and Marc Haeberlin of Auberge de L’ill in Alsace and 2 star Michelin Hans Haas of Restaurant Tantris in Munich. Having seen enough of the fine dining kitchens in Europe, he travelled to the States to cook in The French Laundry.

Heading the front of the house as Maitre D’ is Les Amis Group veteran Royston Soo. Previously the Maitre D’ at Au Jardin, his wide-ranging experience and great understanding of the Group’s service philosophy serves him well to bring the flagship to greater heights. Together with Chef Leitgeb, the duo promises a dining experience that is said to be one of the best in Asia.
