Restaurant ANDRE opened the door in 2010, three months later, we were named as one of the 10 restaurants worth a plan ride by the New York Times and World’s 50 best restaurants. 7 years have passed but we never lose sight of our original intention, our passion, and our promise to our guests. We continue to live up to the expectation and push the boundaries. Most importantly, our goal never changes, we strive to give Singapore and Asia an iconic restaurant like no other.”
The Restaurant ANDRE brigade are honored and humbled to be recognized once again among the best chefs in the world and the chefs that Andre admires, Chef Andre also added, “Team effort may sound cliché but for me, Best restaurant means best brigade, and I truly believe I have the best brigade, therefore I have nothing more to ask for. Thank you all for the endless support, it means a lot to my team and me, because what we do is not just for the restaurant, or Singapore, but also for Asia and future generations. Congratulations to my peers, passionate chefs who made it to the list!”
