    Tablescape

    In a dining landscape where there's a constant sense of one-upmanship, there's something to be said for classic dishes. Tablescape brings a sense of that with a new executive chef, Armando Aristarco, who has created a tight menu of European classics, each given a little lift of modernity. There's both bread and dessert trolley services, which add a bit of old-school luxury to the experience. Given to every diner, the complimentary bread comes with house-churned butter, and sees 4 types available at any one time. Dishes are mostly comfort food, including familiar combinations like sous vide egg with parmesan sauce, asparagus, and black truffles; and a crudo-like creation of raw scallops with salmon roe and cucumber gazpacho. Other times, the dishes get an injection of innovation — like smoked duck and foie gras risotto that arrived at your table lightly smoked. What you really want to keep a lookout for though, is the catch-of-the-day. Aristarco has a personal fisherman in Lombok, who line-catches seafood that the chef then cooks simply on a Josper to highlight its freshness — something that, in our books, is the true luxury.
