He's one of the world's most decorated chefs. At 61 years of age, the snowy-haired figure is no stranger to Michelin stars; in fact, Alain Ducasse was the first chef to own 3 three-Michelin-starred restaurants across three different cities. He currently owns over 20 restaurants around the world.

Now, the acclaimed restaurateur will be opening a restaurant in Singapore in 2019, and it will be located in Raffles Hotel.

At the recent 2018 MICHELIN guide Hong Kong and Macau gala dinner held at the City of Dreams in Macau, the quirky chef-restaurateur tells us about his decision to open in Singapore: "I like Singapore. I know Singapore (from) a long time ago and I consider it a new destination for gastronomy and wine lovers. Many people collect beautiful wines in Singapore, and wine pairing with beautiful food is a great pleasure for my guests." The concept, though, remains "confidential" for now, as Ducasse refines his vision for this upcoming launch.
