The Marina Bay Sands (MBS) casino resort in Singapore is to open a branch of a popular contemporary Chinese restaurant brand with its roots in Hong Kong.
Mott 32 (pictured) will launch at Las Vegas Sands Corp’s Singapore complex “later this year”, said a press release issued by the resort on Monday.
Mott 32 has outlets in Seoul, South Korea; Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada; and Las Vegas, Nevada in the United States as well as Hong Kong.
The brand is led by executive chef Lee Man Sing, who won two Michelin stars for his work at the Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong.
Mott 32’s menu is said to offer “time-honoured Chinese recipes handed down from generations, combined with progressive cooking techniques”.
The name Mott 32 comes from what is said to have been New York City’s first Chinese grocery shop that opened in 1891 at 32 Mott Street in a part of Manhattan that later became New York’s Chinatown.
The Singapore venue is said to be a collaboration between Marina Bay Sands Pte Ltd and a firm called Maximal Concepts.
The interior of the Singapore restaurant has been designed by Joyce Wang.
The restaurant will occupy 7,000 square feet (650 square metres) of floor space at Marina Bay Sands, giving room to seat 149 diners for lunch or dinner, some in a private dining room.
The announcement quoted Marina Bay Sands vice-president Christine Kaelbel-Sheares, who is in charge of food and drink at the casino resort, as saying: “Mott 32 has its own unique identity in embracing tradition through innovative cuisine and a bold bar programme. It will elevate Singapore’s dining scene and offer guests a dramatic theatrical dining experience like no other.”
The notice quoted Maximal Concepts global managing director Malcolm Wood as saying: “We have put together something really special for our Singapore branch, with our food and our design making this location very unique in the Mott 32 family. We hope to deliver a luxurious yet totally authentic Chinese experience.”
