French-born chef Nicolas Joanny (after whom the restaurant is named) creates lovely traditional Provencal cuisine, with a modern twist, in his cozy Chinatown restaurant...
Occupying a beautifully restored shophouse in Bukit Pasoh, one of Chinatown's most atmospheric corners, Nicolas features a classic-romantic décor, with light parquet, dark wood furniture, crisp white tablecloths and everything else that is needed to create a tranquil and comfortable ambiance...
The food makes use of quality French ingredients, together with fresh local stuff, and you can choose from one of their set-menu options, as there's no a-la-carte menu (which is actually an advantage, to those who are not very familiar with this cuisine...). Signature dishes include Slow roasted Tasmanian rack of lamb with jus, rosemary and Provence-style spelt risotto, Pennette pasta with blue prawn and Kurobuta pork shoulder, Braised wagyu ox tongue in wine and Roasted Mediterranean John Dory with homemade tagliolini and crustacean emulsion.
Prices are not insanely high (not for a chef restaurant anyway...): Set-lunch options are pretty good value at SG$ 40 to 50, while set-dinner-menu ranges between SG$ 100 and 125
Open from Tuesday to Saturday, for lunch and dinner
