City of Dreams’ Two-Michelin-Starred The Tasting Room Reopens With New Head Chef Fabrice Vulin and World Exclusive Menu of Rare and Exquisite Delights

June 8, 2017 Dining No Comments Email Email

Already one of Asia’s most acclaimed restaurants, two-Michelin-starred The Tasting Room at City of Dreams has upped the ante once again, reopening with a new head chef and an all-new menu of rare and exclusive delights. The fêted French dining destination – which holds a Forbes Five-Star rating and is one of only two Macau restaurants to feature in the 2017 Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list – will now be helmed by Chef Fabrice Vulin, who brings with him an unrivalled ‘social network’ of artisanal food suppliers that will see The Tasting Room serve up some of the most coveted produce in the world.

Building on The Tasting Room’s reputation for culinary creativity and excellence, Chef Fabrice draws upon his close relationships with artisanal food suppliers in France and beyond to source exclusive and premium ingredients that are the envy of chefs the world over. The result of a lifetime of culinary curiosity and exploration, as well as personal friendships built up over many years, Chef Fabrice is able to obtain not only the most sought-after produce in the world, but also the most choice cuts and superior selections, reserved exclusively for him.

The jewel in the crown of Chef Fabrice’s new menu of classic and contemporary French dishes available in strictly limited quantities is the vintage Blonde d’Aquitaine beef from sixth-generation Parisian master butcher Alexandre Polmard who produces one of the most unique and expensive types of beef in the world. Widely hailed as one of the world’s finest meat suppliers, Polmard supplies his non-vintage beef to just three chefs globally, while the highly prized vintage Blonde Aquitaine is exclusive to The Tasting Room in Asia.

Among the other menu highlights are white caviar by Kaviari of Paris, suppliers of the world’s finest caviar; the ‘Rolls-Royce of Oysters’ from the legendary French family company Gillardeau; the finest cheeses, including a 48-month Comté, from world-class fromager Bernard Antony; and multi-award-winning olive oil from Morocco. All of these dishes and ingredients are exceptionally hard to find elsewhere in Asia and are elevated to even greater heights by the imaginative flair and expert technique of Chef Fabrice and his team.

“At City of Dreams, we constantly strive to contribute to the transformation of Macau into a city of gastronomy by serving up the finest culinary experiences for our guests, and with the recent upgrade of The Tasting Room we are looking forward to raising the bar even higher,” said Mr. Jarlath Lynch, Senior Vice President of Hotels and Food & Beverage, Melco Resorts & Entertainment Limited. “We are also thrilled to welcome Chef Fabrice to The Tasting Room. Drawing on his ‘social network’ of culinary artisans and handpicked suppliers, we are proud to bring our guests not only the finest but the rarest and most exclusive produce in the world to offer a one-of-a-kind dining experience.”

“There is no substitute for quality ingredients,” says Chef Fabrice, who previously worked at two-Michelin-starred Caprice at Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong and is Asia President of the prestigious Maîtres Cuisiniers de France, a historic and globally recognized organization dedicated to the French culinary arts “So I am very excited to bring these rare ingredients and unique dishes from my favorite producers to guests at City of Dreams.”

As an added personal touch, Chef Fabrice will be bringing his personal collection of more than 100 Michelin Guides, including the very first edition from 1900, to display at The Tasting Room, giving guests the opportunity to view a vintage slice of culinary history.

The Tasting Room is open daily for lunch and dinner with limited seats, and includes a private dining room that can seat up to 14 people. For reservations, please call (853) 8868 6681 or email thetastingroom@cod-macau.com.
