When perusing French eateries, don’t overlook Singapore's fine dining stalwart, Les Amis, set in the heart of Orchard Road. Yes, imported chefs – like Gunther Hubrechsen and Armin Leitgeb – have come and gone but Les Amis has yet another trump. Former Joel Robuchon Hong Kong executive chef, Sebastian Lepinoy, who presided over the now defunct Cepage - which closed in June 2013 - now call the shots with a triumvirate of tasting menus: decouverte (S$150++ for 5 courses), epicurien (S$205++ for 6 courses) and degustation (S$280++ for 7 courses). We suggest you skip lunch to savour Lepinoy's Japanese accented French extravaganza via the degustation, which may feature L'Amadai (Amadai fish with scales served in an aromatic saffron-scented bouillabaisse with squid and sauteed lobster) and Le Mikan (confit of candied whole mikan stuffed with mikan panna cotta and sorbet on a light earl grey jelly.)
