This late Summer, db Bistro & Oyster Bar Singapore is set to whisk you off on a culinary adventure to the sunny coasts of the Mediterranean with its first-ever pop-up from 1 September to 31 October. An ode to Chef Daniel Boulud’s love for the rich cultures embodied in Mediterranean cooking, the Boulud Sud pop-up at Marina Bay Sands will present a bright and bold dinner menu specially composed by Chef Boulud and Executive Chef Jonathan Kinsella.
db Bistro & Oyster Bar Singapore – The Origins
Based in New York and Miami, Boulud Sud is Chef Boulud’s Mediterranean-inspired dining concept, offering a veritable culinary travelogue of the entire Mediterranean from the shores of Southern France, Italy, Spain, and the Greek islands, to spice influences from Turkey and the North African coast. To quote a review in The New York Times, “Boulud Sud is the Manhattan equivalent of a private yacht anchored off Monaco, serving the food of Sardinia, Greece, Tunisia, Gibraltar, and Beirut. And you are invited along.”
db Bistro & Oyster Bar Singapore – Weekly Evolving Menu
Each week, the menu will be updated to allow you to savour your way through the diverse cuisines of the Mediterranean. During this period, fans of db Bistro’s classic French cuisine can continue to enjoy the restaurant’s award-winning dishes and impeccable hospitality.
The Boulud Sud pop-up menu is set to showcase the distinctive nature of Mediterranean cuisine, characterised by the bold use of herbs and spices and inspired by fresh produce. Commence the evening with sharing starters such as the smoky octopus à la plancha with Marcona almonds (S$28++), the Turkish “PIDE” flatbread (S$28++) with herb spiced beef, roasted peppers and ricotta salata, and the flavourful saffron tagliolini with clams, seppia and bottarga (S$28++ for appetiser portion; S$36++ for main course portion).
