New restaurant at Ritz-Carlton to offer heritage fare

SINGAPORE - A new restaurant will be taking over the space formerly occupied by Greenhouse at The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore.

Heritage cuisines including Singaporean, Malaysian, Indonesian, Indian, Chinese, and Western, will be served at Colony, which is due to open on Sep 16.

"Dining at Colony is meant to be an event. Beyond just aesthetics, we have endeavoured to craft an immersive epicurean journey for our guests through showcasing the sights, sounds, smells, tastes and touches of the colonial era," Colony's general manager Peter Mainguy said in a statement.

Behind the restaurant's layout is award-winning designer Tony Chi, who is based in New York.

There will be eight open kitchens, where diners can expect to watch live culinary showmanship.

Colony can seat a maximum of 260 persons, and boasts of a "dynamic space" that can apparently be configured to accommodate even larger groups, according to The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore in a statement.

The restaurant will offer breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, and dinner daily, and vintage Champagne brunch on Sundays.

It is offering a complimentary bottle of house wine for each of the first 100 lunch or dinner bookings for at least four paying guests. Terms and conditions apply.

Reservations can be made via 6434 5288 or rc.sinrz.restaurantreservations@ritzcarlton.com.
