Celebrity chef Daniel Boulud has transformed his French bistro at Marina Bay Sands into db Bistro and Oyster Bar to reflect its ever-expanding culinary repertoire. The restaurant’s casual Parisian bistro vibe is boosted by the addition of a brand-new oyster bar in the middle of the restaurant, featuring the freshest seafood from around the world, hand-selected daily by Executive Chef Jonathan Kinsella.
The new oyster bar offers a wide selection of seafood including freshly shucked oysters from the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, Boston Lobster and Alaskan King Crab.
The main attraction of the new db Bistro & Oyster Bar are the signature Seafood Platters consisting of a selection of French and American oysters, Maine lobster, Alaskan king crab, prawns, mussels, fresh clams and tartars. New menu highlights also include a daily selection of crudo and ceviches, as well as new seasonal seafood dishes such as Whole Roasted Mediterranean Seabass, 1kg Grilled Boston Lobster, and Daniel Boulud’s signature Octopus “A la Plancha”. These fresh new selections complement db’s signature dishes including the world-famous Original db Burger, Crispy Duck Confit, Herb Roasted Organic Chicken for Two and house-made Charcuterie.
Said Chef Daniel Boulud, “Seafood has been one of the most popular items at db Bistro over the past few years. Keeping the customer in mind, we’ve decided to expand the seafood menu and reflect that in our restaurant branding. The new oyster bar will enhance the dining experience for guests who will get to enjoy freshly shucked oysters and raw seafood items from the bar, along with our signature items at our restaurant.“
