Hot New Opening: Hollywood Road
A new addition to the list of esteemed restaurants at the Formula One Paddock Club this year is Hollywood Road, by Hong Kong's popular restaurant group Maximal Concepts (also behind Mott 32 and Fish & Meat in Hong Kong). The restaurant will be in the Paddock Club lifestyle area, turning out signature dishes such as Foie Gras Cotton Candy and Crispy Sugar-coated BBQ Iberico Pork Bun with Kumquat by renowned chef Lee Man Sing.
In the mood for Jap at NOBU
Next to Hollywood road is celebrity chef and restaurateur Nobuyuki Nobu Matsuhisa, the man behind his famous eponymous restaurant. The restaurant will be showcasing their seasonal autumn menu, with sustainable seafood produce such as mini “Chira-shi” cup sushi, and Chilean seabass with jalapeno miso.
Sweet treats at Tarte
Fans of two-Michelin-starred Les Amis will be familiar with their pastry chef, Chery Koh. This year, she will be back at the Paddock Club with her vibrant, buttery-shelled tarts filled with luscious cream and fresh seasonal fruits.
Returning for the tenth year running, chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten has been a popular favourite each year at the Grand Prixe. Head here for dishes such as Black Truffle and Fontina Pizza, and his Asian-inspired take on Steamed Lobster with Yuzu Ginger Dressing and Bok Choy.
Comfort food at COMO Cuisine
Fill up with hearty classics such as wagyu beef wellington with foie gras and king crab cakes here. New this year is also chef Malcolm Lee from one-Michelin-starred Candlenut restaurant, who will be sharing this space with COMO Cuisine's executive chef Timothy de Souza.
Over at the other side of the track, Apex Lounge is a brand new product category launched earlier this year. Sink into the plush seating with live beats spun by DJs, while tucking into a variety of tapas from multiple live food stations. For drinks, the lounge is well-stocked with cocktails, craft Scotch whiskies and sake bars.
This year, the Sky Terrace is home to chefs new to cooking up a storm in the circuit park. Pop over for classic Portuguese fare like Baked Duck Rice with Cheese by Chef Helio Gonçalves of Boca restaurant or tuck into strips of aburi (torched) wagyu by Japanese chef Hamamoto of Michelin-recommended Ki-Sho.
Michelin-starred meal at Alma
Chef Haikal Johari of one-Michelin-starred Alma will be dishing out a selection of modern Spanish–European dishes with Asian influences. For those who have yet to dine at Alma, expect his signature dishes such Squid chips with langoustine and celery mayo as well as Crispy Tofu with a foie gras emulsion.
Farm-to-table at The Boathouse
Fresh ingredients are key at Thai chef Bon Cheang's Phuket restaurant, The Boathouse. Dishes here are packed with the spices that come with Thai food, shown in his modern dishes of Braised Crab Curry with Vermicelli, Massaman Lamb Roulade and Crispy Banana Blossom Flower Patties.
Sip champagne at the Sky Bar
Arguably the best way to celebrate the Grand Prixe (if you're not an F1 driver, of course) — the complimentary open Sky Bar. Kick back and unwind with a glass of bubbly, or craft beer if you'll rather something less fancy.
