Concierge.com's insider take:
Les Amis, sister restaurant to Au Jardin and Casa Verde, is the culinary embodiment of high-society Singapore. It's lavish but elegant, has the right pedigree—starting with Chef Armin Leitgeb's French Laundry background—and is thoroughly modern: The sommelier will even e-mail you in advance to consult about wine pairings. Multicourse meals may begin with a rich foie-gras terrine with crispy apple bread and pear-verjus chutney, then drift luxuriantly into main courses like roasted Black Angus entrecôte served with cocoa bean ragout and truffled French fries. Globe-trotting gourmands will appreciate the details here, from Italian linen napkins to the aromatic cedar steak knives and exquisite Zwiesel stemware matched to your wine. The dining room itself, located near the designer shops along Orchard Road, is Singapore's most formal, with straight-back but plush chairs; intricate chandeliers from Istanbul's Grand Bazaar; and low, romantic lighting.
Open Mondays through Fridays noon to 2 pm and 7 to 10 pm (last seating), Saturdays 7 to 10 pm (last seating).
