Food Review: Get Swanky at The Black Swan
2013-08-19
How would you like to step onto the set of The Great Gatsby? Well, at The Black Swan, you can do just that. We’re not saying you’ll be meeting Leo DiCaprio in the flesh, but we’re quite certain you wouldn’t say no to the amazing grub, electrifying atmosphere and excellent service this swanky new restaurant has to offer.
Joining the ranks of its successful siblings – The White Rabbit, OverEasy, Tanjong Beach Club, Extra Virgin Pizza and Loof – The Black Swan is yet another exciting F&B concept by The Lo & Behold Group
Located at Cecil Street in Singapore’s bustling Central Business District, The Black Swan oozes this seductive old world charm and comes complete with an Art Deco style interior – plus lots of elegant brass fixtures – for that authentic 1920-30s feel. It’s split into three main areas: the bar on the left, the main dining hall on the right, and a grand mezzanine lounge area on the second level, which will open soon. Share the joy
Baked Bone Marrow with Chilli and Konbu Crostini
Looking for light bites to share? We say the Baked Bone Marrow with Chilli and Konbu Crostini ($18) should be your Number One choice if you love the lusciousness of bone marrow. Another must-order is the divine Char-Grilled Beef Tartare ($26) – The Black Swan’s rendition of this classic starter is flash-grilled for that subtle hint of smokiness so if you’ve always been put off by the intense rawness of beef tartare, you’ll gladly sink your teeth into this creation. Want something to slurp on instead? There’s the Chilled Gazpacho ($18). This incredibly refreshing soup comes with roma tomato sorbet, capsicum, cucumber and celery. A great choice to cut through all that meat! Big bites
The Black Swan Burger
The main courses at The Black Swan highlight the cream of the crop; you’ll find the best meat and seafood creations on the large plates menu. Medium beef chuck patty with melted cheddar cheese and a perfect sunny side up sandwiched between buttered buns, The Black Swan Burger ($26) is guaranteed to satisfy any carnivorous foodie, while the Fish of the Day (anywhere from $34 to $38) makes a fantastic treat for those who can’t resist fish. Catches include Barramundi, Red Snapper and New Zealand Garouper and the beautiful fillet cut is seasoned simply with salt and pepper before it is pan-seared. Sweet endings
Dark Chocolate Dome
And now, possibly your favourite part of the meal: desserts. The variety isn’t exactly extensive but The Black Swan promises impressive sweets with delights such as the Dark Chocolate Dome ($16); an exquisite vanilla crème-filled Valrhona dark chocolate hemisphere, and the oh-so-creamy-and-milky Coconut Crème Caramel ($14); an Asian-European fusion dessert made with gula Melaka and topped with candied citrus and ginger. Bottoms up
Good Night Peru
You can’t possibly leave The Black Swan without helping yourself to a couple of their signature cocktails. Start things off with something smooth; Good Night Peru ($19) features Peruvian Pisco (an amber-coloured grape brandy), chamomile flower-infused syrup, fresh lemon, lime juice and some egg white. Fancy something with a little more zest? There’s either Escape to Amalfi ($19); Prosecco with vodka and lemon sorbet, or Moral Hazard ($19); crafted with 15-year-old bourbon, orange bitters, apricot liquor and Manuka honey. So go ahead, pick your poison and drink up while we all wait with bated breath for the grand opening of The Black Swan’s mezzanine lounge. Watch this space!
