Opening a new restaurant can be hard, especially in the middle of a pandemic where establishments face a lot of restrictions. Fortunately, many chefs and restaurateurs have pressed on, as evinced by the number of establishments that opened in the last few months. That said, what better way to start the year on a good note and support the local industry while having a delicious meal at the same time.
Taking over The Black Swan at The Quadrant is Rosemead, Jigger & Pony’s modern Californian fine dining restaurant helmed by chef David Tang. While its a la carte menu changes seasonally, gourmands can anticipate comforting Californian fare such as Pickering Passage oysters with salmon roe and horseradish; 14-day matured Long Island duck with apricot barley miso; and swordtip squid and mussel with green chilli harissa (green chilli paste).
