LUCE by Davide Giacomelli

(NEW) LUCE by Davide Giacomelli Replaces Ash & Elm at InterContinental Singapore

LUCE by Davide Giacomelli recently opened on 20 May 2022 at InterContinental Singapore, replacing the former Ash & Elm offering a combination of bistro and gastronomic approach to Italian dining in a warm and inviting bistro ambience. Chef de Cuisine Davide Giacomelli holds over 13 years of culinary experience with stints at Michelin-starred restaurants across Europe, including the three-Michelin-starred Le Meurice Alain Ducasse, one-Michelin-starred Le Diane and one-Michelin-starred Le Vistamar Restaurant.

Restaurant Manager Artem Viglione possesses a wealth of experience in award-winning, upscale restaurants and bars and extensive knowledge of food and wine pairing.

The menu features dishes that are inspired by Italian classics and authentic flavours of Chef Davide’s hometown. The Acquerello Lobster is absolutely divine. Extremely flavourful Carnaroli rice is cooked in lobster stock and served with succulent half Boston lobster and chervil. Enjoy the pan-fried Atlantic cod with fresh, homemade tomato sauce, taggiasca olives, anchovies, pantelleria capers and fresh herbs featuring soft, flaky cod paired with fragrant, robust flavours of the traditional Puttanesca sauce in the Merluzzo alla Puttanesca. Both these mains are priced at S$46.

Be sure to order the LUCE-misu, Executive Pastry Chef Demond Lee’s modern take on the Italian tiramisu dessert. Mascarpone cream espuma, espresso syrup, lady finger sponge and crunchy feuilletine is deconstructed yet the essence of the classic Tirmasu is retained.

Two and three-course set lunches featuring special dishes outside the regular menu are available for under S$50 such as Maltagliati Stracotto d’ Agnello, a fresh homemade pasta with lamb ragout or the Barramundi Zucchini Tapenade with Citron Confit.
