The cool contemporary and smooth jazz sounds of Spyro Gyra, George Benson, Lee Ritenour, Incognito and top jazz artistes are now reverberating at Bintan Lagoon Resort in a new brunch setting of luxe dishes paired with top champagnes and wines by the beach.
Staged at Nelayan Beachfront Restaurant, the Resort’s signature dining outlet, the Saturday Jazz Brunch features a sumptuous range of dishes orchestrated by Nelayan Chef M Rafi, Senior Executive Sous Chef Adli Nizam and Resort Manager Suhairi Idris. Boasting stunning views of the South China Sea and a relaxing island ambience, the Jazzy Saturday Brunch promises chilled out vibes for an idyllic Saturday away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
“The amalgamation of a spectacular display of food and smooth jazz music with a backdrop of the cool colours and breeze from our beach is an absolute refreshing indulgence – there is no better way to start the weekend off in just an hour away from Singapore on our very own direct ferry. Guests can come in for the day or stay the night,” remarks Mr Gerald A. Hendrick, Senior Vice President of Resort Venture and General Manager of Bintan Lagoon Resort.
The brunch features gourmet dishes such as Steak Tartare, Butter Shoyu Grilled Scallop with Salsa Verde, chilled fresh seafood and sushi, seasonal cheese, Lobster Bisque, an Egg Station, artisanal breads, Slow Roasted Prime Beef Rossini & Seared Foie Gras, Herb Crusted Rack of Lamb, Hyderabadi Briyani of Duck, local Bintan delights such as Laksa Lemak Ikan Tengiri, Beef Rendang, Prawns & Quail Egg Sambal, a Waffle Station and more.
Each course/dish will be delicately matched with champagne and wines from well-known wine regions such as France, Australia and Italy. The resident Orlin Band will be getting toes tapping and bodies swinging to its lively repertoire of well-known jazz hits. Plans are in the pipeline to showcase guest jazz talents as well.
