Sofitel Singapore City Centre is presenting Les Jardin du Sofitel in celebration of the global Vogue x Sofitel collaboration from 13 February to 9 April 2023.

Taking inspiration in haute couture and spring fashion trends, 1864 will be transformed into a botanical wonderland with a specially curated all-day dining menu featuring edible flowers and fashion elements that are almost too pretty to eat. Launching just in time for Valentine’s Day and International Women’s Day, a gastronomic affair at 1864 is the perfect way to show love and appreciation to oneself, a romantic partner, friend, or co-worker.

Elaborate Floral Decor

Step into an oasis of floral dreams brimming with roses, eustomas, peonies, hydrangeas, and hanging wisterias that are reminiscent of a Parisian floral café at 1864. Crafted by the master artisans at The Floral Atelier, a luxury floral design studio whose roster of clients include Louis Vuitton, Dior, Saint Laurent, Cartier and more, the extravagant installation is a sight to behold. Guests who are obsessed with fashion are also invited to come dressed in their best spring ensemble as the installation includes a runway which presents an opportunity for guests to be the star of their own fashion show.

A la carte specialties

Drawing inspiration from spring’s beautiful blooms, the medley of à la carte specialties feature savoury masterpieces such as Fish Brandade with Light Citrus Gel and Olive Dust (S$28++), a perfect combination of creamy fish with a refreshing gel, and Pickled Tomato with Egglant Caviar and Pesto Cream (S$24++), a delicious appetiser presented in a whole tomato. Other show-stopping highlights include the elegant Pavlova with Citrus Coulis and Exotic Fruits (S$20++), which comes with a crisp and rich exterior paired with soft marshmallow interior, and Lemon Tart with Berries and Lemon Balm (S$20++), a harmonious blend of sweet, buttery crust with zingy lemon curd.

Cocktails and Mocktails

While flowers may be the go-to gift for Valentine’s Day and International Women’s Day, floral libations are a much better alternative that can help craft unique, memorable moments. Look forward to Spring Symphony (S$25++), a thoughtfully curated tipple made with Four Pillars yuzu gin, Luxardo Maraschino, and cranberry juice, perfumed with cherry blossom, and Chrysanthemum Sips (S$25++), offering notes of chrysanthemum vodka, apple juice, lychee juice and lemon juice, in a teapot. For teetotalers, opt for Moon Sparkle (S$16++), a lavender hue mocktail infused with blue curaçao, cherry blossom, apple juice, and elderflower tonic, presented in a canary cocktail glass, or Bella Rosa (S$16++), a gorgeous red drink combining Seedlip Spice, elderflower syrup, and cranberry juice, poured over floral ice cubes.

Takeaway cakes

Bring home assorted handmade creations baked fresh in-house daily in small batches. The Honey Cheesecake (S$12++) brings together a velvety and rich cream cheese layer with a toasty cookie base that is baked to golden brown perfection, while the Caraibe Chocolate Choux (S$12++) showcases a light and airy puff topped with swirls of decadent chocolate cream. The Raspberry Macaron (S$9++) is another showstopper, with luscious pink meringues sandwiching whole raspberries and chantilly cream.
