Angeline Sunday, June 28, 2015 , , , ,


Marina Bay Sands is proud to team up with award-winning chef Gordon Ramsay to unveil Bread Street Kitchen in Singapore. Now officially open, the highly anticipated restaurant and bar offers classic British European fare in a lively and bustling space facing the spectacular waterfront. Located at the south promenade of The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, the restaurant features an extensive menu that showcases British favourites reinvented by the multi- Michelin starred chef at the brand’s London flagship.

Gordon Ramsay said, “I’m excited to be part of the Marina Bay Sands family and in Singapore where people are so passionate about food. Bread Street Kitchen is a mix of vintage and modern with an ever-changing menu, dishes inspired by local ingredients, and a beautiful view of the waterfront and city skyline!”

Tamir Shanel, Vice President of Food & Beverage, Marina Bay Sands said, “Bread Street Kitchen by Gordon Ramsay is our latest celebrity chef restaurant and we are excited to welcome this new venue to our family of iconic chefs and outstanding dining experiences. With an attractive location that offers a waterfront dining experience, along with a strong team helming the restaurant, Bread Street Kitchen is set to enhance the celebrity chef programme at Marina Bay Sands.”

Led by Executive Chef Sabrina Stillhart, Bread Street Kitchen at Marina Bay Sands will stay true to its London concept, tapping on British artisanal products and seasonal fare, but will also work with local ingredients to deliver a globally inspired menu.

Sabrina, who has been with the Gordon Ramsay Group for almost a decade, hails from the opening team of Bread Street Kitchen, London.

The stellar team is also helmed by General Manager John Quetier, who has more than 16 years of experience in several outstanding restaurants including L‘Atelier de Joel Robuchon in London, Vue de monde by Shannon Bennett in Melbourne and maze by the Gordon Ramsay Group.
The Menu
From the grill section, savour dishes such as Dingley Dell Pork Chop, Roasted Baby Chicken with chimichurri and burnt lemon, as well as the hearty Irish Rib-Eye 28 days aged. Chips as well as Red onion and carrots coleslaw serve as delicious sides to complement the mains.
Sweet delights includes classic British desserts such as Chocolate fondant with salted caramel and mint chocolate chip ice cream, Bread and butter pudding, sultanas, cinnamon and Banana sticky toffee pudding, muscovado caramel, clotted cream.

The “interactive” bar area features a communal table and allows for mixologists to offer a lively drinking experience, perfect for an after-work catch up, serving both classic and innovative cocktails with fresh ingredients and a selection of world wines.

The Design
Designed by Wilson Associates’ Blueplate Studios, the two-storey restaurant and bar stays true to the brand’s East London industrial roots. However, the design team re-invented certain brand elements to create a distinct sense of place, starting with the floors and ceilings. The black and white tiled floors are transformed into abstracted geometric patterns that add a quirky playfulness to the venue and help distinguish the different dining environments. The ceilings on the ground level – resembling a woven orange checkered board - bring warmth and dimension to the glass enclosure.

To further achieve the eclectic industrial vibe, the furniture, finishes and fixtures are a mix of vintage and modern influences. Exposed pipework, wire mesh, black mirrors, and vintage- inspired lighting and accessories complement the tufted banquets and dark-stained timber. Black and white photos of St. Paul’s Cathedral hang on the wall, alluding to the location of “Bread Street” within the old City of London. They also enhance the sense of nostalgia that makes the Bread Street Kitchen experience novel, yet familiar.

The main entrance of the restaurant is a collaged walkway of authentic Singaporean manholes. These manholes are a playful reference to the actual ‘street’ in Bread Street Kitchen. To the left of the walkway sits the venue’s focal point: the bar. The bar is a tribute to the mezzanine wine cellar in the London location. It’s a brasserie-industrial fusion comprised of local suar wood and expanded mesh that’s bathed in diffused light.

The overall design feel is an eclectic industrial collection of marble, bronze, mixed timbers, and leather that creates an intimate, bespoke dining experience for a variety of guests.
Bread Street Kitchen is open for lunch, dinner and bar services daily. To make a reservation, please visit www.marinabaysands.com/breadstreetkitchen or call 6688 5665.

With its official opening, Bread Street Kitchen joins a stellar cast of nine celebrity chef restaurants in Marina Bay Sands, including Adrift by David Myers, CUT by Wolfgang Puck, db Bistro & Oyster Bar by Daniel Boulud, Long Chim by David Thompson, Osteria and Pizzeria Mozza by Mario Batali, Sky on 57 by Justin Quek, Spago by Wolfgang Puck (upcoming) and Waku Ghin by Tetsuya Wakuda.

The Team Gordon Ramsay
Scottish by birth, Gordon Ramsay was brought up in Stratford-upon-Avon, England. With an injury prematurely putting an end to any hopes of a promising career in football, he went back to college to complete a course in hotel management. His dedication and natural talent led him to train with some of the world’s leading chefs, such as Albert Roux and Marco Pierre White in London, and Guy Savoy and Joël Robuchon in France.

In 1993 Gordon became chef of Aubergine in London, which within three years, was awarded two Michelin stars. In 1998, at the age of 31, Ramsay set up his first wholly owned and namesake restaurant, Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, which quickly received the most prestigious accolade in the culinary world – three Michelin stars. Today, Restaurant Gordon Ramsay is London’s longest- running restaurant to hold this award, and Ramsay is one of only four chefs in the UK to maintain three stars.

Now internationally renowned, multi-Michelin-starred Ramsay has opened a string of successful restaurants across the globe, from Italy to the United States. These include two ventures in Doha, Qatar that opened in 2012; three restaurants in Las Vegas (Gordon Ramsay Steak at Paris, Gordon Ramsay Pub and Grill at Caesars Palace and Gordon Ramsay BurGR at Planet Hollywood), Gordon Ramsay Pub and Grill in Atlantic City and Bread Street Kitchen in Hong Kong. In the UK, in the past eighteen months , the Gordon Ramsay Group has opened Union Street Café, London House, Heddon Street Kitchen and two further maze Grills, one of which is located on the former Aubergine site on Park Walk, Chelsea.
