St Regis Singapore American Kaleidoscope - Chef Chris Kurth US Grant - Interior Dining Area

Hailing from The U.S. Grant, A Luxury Collection Hotel, San Diego, Chef Chris Kurth serves up an exclusive epicurean experience with the American Kaleidoscope 5-course dinner ($188 per person with pairing wines. 29 Jul-4 Aug, excluding 2 Aug) that teams his unique modern interpretations of some iconic American favourites with boutique American wines—selection of wine changes every night.

St Regis Singapore American Kaleidoscope - Chef Chris Kurth US Grant - Baked Red Beet Root Salad

As pretty as it is delicious, the Baked red beet root starter was an instant mood-lifter on that damp Saturday afternoon. The characteristically sweet and earthy taste of cooked beet root is firmly balanced by ricotta and a slightly tart custard. What I’d thought to be bacon turned out to be shreds of California dates, and with fragile meringue of tarragon and chive, added more dimension to the dish.

St Regis Singapore American Kaleidoscope - Chef Chris Kurth US Grant - San Diego Mock Turtle Soup

It seems America may not be too different from Asia, what with Chef Chris pioneering Turtle soup in San Diego—made using turtles near the U.S. Grant itself—though the reptile has now been replaced with US Black Angus beef and tongue. Braised for hours then served with a robust fish and beef stock, it makes for heart- and soul-warming, wholesome enjoyment.

St Regis Singapore American Kaleidoscope - Chef Chris Kurth US Grant - Pan-Seared Albacore Tuna

While the Albacore tuna could admittedly be less well-done for my liking, the sprinkles of delightfully creamy powdered brown butter made up for it. Pair it with dulcet tones of pickled strawberries and an intense Oregon pinot nior reduction, and the dish is suddenly plump with promise again.

St Regis Singapore American Kaleidoscope - Chef Chris Kurth US Grant - Charcoal-Grilled Colorado Lamb Saddle

Executed with finesse, the Charcoal-grilled Colorado lamb saddle is supple with frankly sexy smokey notes. The overtly sweet dried fruit preserve makes for an usually well team with the succulent lamb, with preserved lemon and shaved parmigiano reggiano to cut through the sweetness. Add a dash of crushed black pepper for that extra oomph.

St Regis Singapore American Kaleidoscope - Chef Chris Kurth US Grant - Almond Brown Butter Cake

The dessert fared a little well. I appreciated the apricot sorbet that coupled with the moist almond brown butter cake beautifully, but the milk confiture was so surprisingly creamy and sweet that I’d thought I was back at Rang Mahal. Thankfully the gorgeously crisp, fried white chocolate and black cherry beignet made for a mellow, pleasant bite to go along with my coffee and the housemade mignardises.
