Noth­ing says clas­sic Amer­i­can flavours like Yard­bird South­ern Ta­ble & Bar, and John Kunkel, founder of 50 Eggs Inc, the restau­rant group be­hind it, was sure to make that known at its re­launch party on 6 De­cem­ber. At its Ma­rina Bay Sands out­post, the fes­tiv­i­ties not only marked the re­turn of its orig­i­nal name – just like its sis­ter restau­rants in Mi­ami, Las Ve­gas and Los An­ge­les – but also in­tro­duced the who’s who of Sin­ga­pore’s so­cial scene to the restau­rant’s lav­ish Amer­i­can spread.

Close to 300 guests at­tended, as well as 50 Eggs Inc’s cor­po­rate ex­ec­u­tive chef Patrick Reb­holz and cor­po­rate ex­ec­u­tive pas­try chef Hedy Gold­smith who flew in from Mi­ami. Celebrity em­cee Roz Pho hosted the party as ac­tresses Con­stance Lau and Jan­ice Koh of Crazy Rich Asians fame joined the high-en­ergy soirée along­side Class 95FM DJ Yas­minne Cheng, ac­tor Ja­son God­frey and mu­si­cian Ben­jamin Kheng, just to name a few.

Es­teemed guests were wel­comed with sig­na­ture cock­tails, in­clud­ing the in­vig­o­rat­ing Black­berry Bour­bon Le­mon­ade and South­ern Re­vival, as well as a suc­ces­sion of canapés, such as their Chicken ”n” waf­fles, mini Deviled Eggs and Fried Green Tomato & Crispy Pork Belly. There was a pre­view of Yard­bird’s new menu when head chef Leonard Del­gado and Reb­holz got be­hind the kitchen for a siz­zling demon­stra­tion of their Lobster Mac & Cheese. When not in­dulging in the seem­ingly end­less buf­fet of oys­ters, salmon sashimi and caviar, guests could be seen snap­ping shots of Gold­smith’s clas­sic treat of Co­conut Layer Cake and vi­brant dough­nut trees. The lat­ter is avail­able dur­ing the week­ends as part of their Great Amer­i­can Brunch, along with her colour­ful stack of Fun­fetti Pan­cakes.

Four guests got to try their hand at mak­ing said cock­tails up on level one, while a DJ ig­nited the party with mod­ern rock tunes. The high­light, without ques­tion, was when one guest took home $400 worth of shop­ping vouch­ers from The Shoppes at Ma­rina Bay Sands for guess­ing the num­ber of whiskey la­bels avail­able at the restau­rant. As if the night wasn’t mem­o­rable enough, guests got to bring home goodie bags filled with items, such as Yard­bird South­ern Ta­ble & Bar’s fiery honey hot sauce.

The cel­e­bra­tion con­tin­ued into the week­end with a Great Amer­i­can Brunch Party on 8 De­cem­ber, at­tended by re­gional me­dia, in­flu­encers and adorable dogs of In­sta­gram. Guests, in­clud­ing Dr. Jade Kua and fash­ion bou­tique owner Saman­tha Chan, en­joyed de­light­ful cre­ations by Gold­smith, such as the fluffy, mile-high Fun­fetti Pan­cakes and dough­nut trees, as well as a med­ley of brunch favourites, like the Chicken & Egg Bis­cuit Sand­wich. The party also un­veiled a re­freshed al­fresco seat­ing on the bay level over­look­ing the scenic Ma­rina Bay water­front prom­e­nade. Lit­tle ones dec­o­rated their own gin­ger­bread men and Christ­mas baubles, while furry friends spent a lovely af­ter­noon bask­ing in the sun.
