As a de­li­cious pre­lude for the feast that was to come, 40 VIPs, food­ies, and members of T.Din­ing So­ci­ety in­dulged in fine cham­pagne and a steady suc­ces­sion of di­vine canapés at the well-ap­pointed Crys­tal Villa over­look­ing the im­pres­sively gilt City Of Dreams com­plex.

Guests hob­nobbed and min­gled as an ac­cor­dion­ist played charm­ing tunes un­til they were in­vited down to the re­cently re­designed The Tast­ing Room helmed by newly-ap­pointed Chef de Cui­sine, Frederic Thevenet. Here, a four-course din­ner metic­u­lously matched with re­mark­able vin­tages, was thor­oughly en­joyed by all.

The lovely host for the evening, In­grid Chua, in­tro­duced the highly ac­com­plished Thevenet as well as the City of Dreams VIPs, namely Michael Ziemer and Kevin Ben­ning.

Since the reimag­in­ing of NÜWA ho­tel’s con­tem­po­rary fine din­ing French restau­rant, this par­tic­u­lar multi-sen­sory experience cer­tainly made it one for the T.Din­ing books.
