Old World Wine List of the Year

Interview with Les Amis Pte Ltd
What does being in the World Gourmet Series Awards Of Excellence Hall of Fame mean to Les Amis?
It is very humbling to be recognised and awarded the Hall of Fame. We have continuously worked hard since day 1 and have always kept our focus in developing an extensive list of wines at a wide range of prices for all our diners.
What do you think makes Les Amis stand out in the current market place?
Les Amis has had a great fortune to become an institution of gastronomy and developed a successful wine programme. Thus diners come to us to experience something timeless yet up to date, and be taken onto a mystical journey in exploring some of the world's ethereal wines. These, along with a professional team in the kitchen and Sommeliers, stands out in today's competitive market.
What does Les Amis hope to achieve in the near future?
Les Amis will continue to excite customers who have supported us through the years with both its food and wines. However, we also look forward to developing a newer audience - with our wine list in topic, we look at buying wines with current interest of the new generation as there seems to be a different level of appreciation compared to the more mature diners of Les Amis, and offering a more adventurous list of wines.
Can you share with other establishments in the industry the problems you've had to overcome to achieve this accolade?
Maintaining a list of this calibre is always stressful. With inventory and other misc issues, the Sommelier team has to constantly update themselves with recent developments in the wine business and create new ideas of wine pairing and new wines to buy!
