Singapore now boasts two new 3 Michelin-star restaurants with Les Amis and Odette receiving the honour when the 2019 Singapore Michelin Star list was announced on Tuesday.
Singapore had lost its three Michelin-star restaurant in 2018 when the Joel Robuchon Restaurant shut down.
Odette and Les Amis both serve French haute cuisine and are run by French-born chefs, with Sebastian Lepinoy of Les Amis adding to the two stars he received when Michelin launched its first Singapore guide in 2016.
Odette, which was previously a 2 Michelin-star establishment, was expected to to move a grade up especially after it was placed in 18th spot in the World’s 50 Best Restaurants awards, held for the first time in Singapore in June.
The Michelin Guide gala dinner was held on Tuesday to celebrate the launch of the Michelin Guide Singapore 2019, now in its fourth edition.
This year, 44 restaurants received stars, up from 39 last year. Only 133 restaurants in the world have three Michelin stars, with Japan heading the ranking with 31, followed by France with 27.
