[July 17, 2017, Macau] Set to become Macau’s most innovative culinary destination, MGM COTAI today announced five new dining concepts covering a wide range of regional Chinese cuisines, completing the culinary adventures helmed by four globally acclaimed chefs.
Chún, MGM COTAI’s fine dining restaurant serving exquisite and creative Cantonese cuisine; Five Foot Road, a Sichuan restaurant and heaven for spice lovers; Hǎo Guō, offering superb seafood hotpot and regional Chinese cuisine under one roof; Miàn Duì Miàn, a Chinese restaurant serving handmade noodles and dumplings 24 hours a day, and Bar Patuá, a classic yet contemporary bar that serves crafted cocktails using uniquely oriental ingredients such as Chinese tea and herbs. These five food outlets will join MGM COTAI’s four other innovative dining concepts especially created by world-renowned award-winning chefs, Mauro Colagreco, Mitsuharu Tsumura, Graham Elliot and Janice Wong.
Mr. Moky Lam, Vice President of Food and Beverage of MGM, says, “We are excited to bring such diverse and truly inspiring dining experiences to our guests through our nine unparalleled restaurants. Our trusted team of over 460 experienced chefs will work together to treat and surprise palates of food lovers from around the world. From the never-before-been-seen-in-Macau dining concepts especially designed by celebrity chefs, or casual dining options for guests around the clock, MGM COTAI will take everyone on a gastronomic journey by bringing in the best culinary experts and talents from near and far.”
With stunning contemporary design and exquisite culinary delights, Chún will be Macau’s top destination for authentic and creative Cantonese cuisine. Fresh, subtle and delicate flavors that let premium ingredients speak for themselves are the foundations of Chún. Diners will be treated to steamed fresh seafood, double boiled soups simmered for hours, succulent roasted and braised meats as well as refined dim sum. Staff will be on hand to assist with recommendations from the extensive fine wine list and can suggest food pairings; a selection of premium teas selected by certified Tea master will also be available at the well decorated Tea Bar.
Five Foot Road
Like the ancient silk routes that the restaurant draws its inspiration, Five Foot Road is going to take guests on a culinary journey through the rich and complex flavors of Chengdu dishes from Sichuan cuisine. The restaurant will be Macau’s heaven for spice lovers with famed Sichuan chili and peppercorn playing a central role on the menu, while authentic non-spicy dishes will also be available for guests looking for alternatives. A stylish bar and lounge featuring elegant calligraphic poems sets to create a meeting spot for travelers to Macau – it will be a place where guests can savor a variety of beverages including traditional Sichuan Kung Fu tea and a selection of infused beverages.
Guests will be spoiled for choice at Hǎo Guō, where superb seafood hotpot and regional Chinese cuisine will be offered under one roof. Regional Chinese classics such as Peking duck, dumpling, fresh seafood congee and hair-thin Chinese noodles will be available, accompanied by a dynamic show kitchen packed with action that will entertain guests. For hotpot, guests will be able to choose from the wide selection of premium seasonal produce from land and sea, and pair it with a variety of traditional, contemporary, or herbal broths across Northern and Southern China. Hǎo Guō will be buzzed with fun and energy, and will be ideal for families, groups and team events.
Miàn Duì Miàn
Quality meets convenience in a bright, casual space at Miàn Duì Miàn, where guests will be able to enjoy delicious handmade noodles and dumplings 24 hours a day on the gaming floor. The restaurant will serve up tasty, fast and comforting fare, drawing together North and South of China. Congee and rice dishes from around Asia will also be available, as guests watch skilled chefs craft northern-style dumplings and regional Chinese noodles from scratch and cook them to order in the show kitchen.
Named after the almost forgotten Macanese creole language that fuses Chinese, Portuguese, Malay and Sinhalese, Bar Patuá pays tribute to Macau’s rich multicultural heritage. A masterful blend of East and West, the bar will serve creative cocktails that are made with premium liquor and ingredients such as Chinese tea and herbs. Guests can also sample a selection of local beers, accompanied by a platter of artisanal cold cuts and other bar snacks. Bar Patuá will feature a mix of classic and contemporary décor and furniture, with a chilled yet upbeat atmosphere.
Celebrated Chef Restaurants
Contributing to Macau’s thriving culinary scene, MGM COTAI is bringing its guests on a truly innovative and unique culinary adventure with the best emerging talented chefs in the gastronomic world. Michelin two-star award-winning chef Mauro Colagreco will oversee Grill 58°, a destination for connoisseurs of fine food and wine, and the must-go place for exceptional meats sourced by MGM’s Master Butcher from the best ranchers around the world. One of the world’s most acclaimed Nikkei cuisine experts Mitsuharu Tsumura will be at the helm of Aji, the first authentic Nikkei restaurant in Macau. Taking inspiration from America’s relaxed West Coast lifestyle, Coast will be overseen by Graham Elliot, an award-winning Michelin star chef and television personality from popular cooking show “Top Chef”. Adding sweetness to the lineup is one of the best pastry chefs in Asia, Janice Wong, who is going to offer a full desserts experience at Janice Wong MGM with one of the biggest chocolate fountains in the world – a 7.3-meter high sculpture spouting rivers of dark, milk and white chocolate.
