Singapore-based gourmands, look here — the Grand Hyatt is about to add a real gem to its culinary crown. The inaugural Asian outpost of the famed Antwerp restaurant Le Pristine by Dutch chef Sergio Herman is slated to open at the landmark hotel, which is now undergoing a tip-to-toe revamp, in the third quarter of 2023. Styled as an upmarket brasserie with a cocktail bar, the fine-dining venue in Belgium’s capital of cool received a Michelin star in its first year of operations. Its food is what the Michelin Guide describes as “Italian contemporary,” and showcases fresh produce from the coastal Dutch province of Zeeland where the chef-entrepreneur was born.

Known for its quality of seafood and fertile soils, Zeeland is the largest agricultural region in the Netherlands. The province occupies a low-lying delta at the mouth of the Scheldt, Rhine, and Meuse rivers, an estuarine landscape ideal for farming oysters and succulent lobsters. Mussels flavored with lovage and pecorino cheese and lobster-stuffed cannelloni in white wine sauce are must-tries at Le Pristine’s Antwerp location; it is too early to say if the two dishes will also be featured on the menu in Singapore.

Through this new collaboration, Hyatt and Sergio Herman Group aim to express the creativity and heritage of Herman through food, fashion, art, and music. The dining experience will bring together his eye for detail and commitment to delivering a consistently high level of hospitality, while spotlighting Dutch design. Updates from Le Pristine Singapore are now being shared on Instagram at @le_pristine_singapore. Reservation details will be announced on the platform ahead of the restaurant’s opening later this year.
