Iron Chef Cat Cora opens restaurant at RWS


You have seen her battle against top chefs in the reality cooking competition Iron Chef, now savour Cat Cora's dishes at her new and first overseas eatery - Ocean Restaurant by Cat Cora.

Located at the S.E.A Aquarium in Resorts World Sentosa, the 63-seat restaurant has a view of the Open Ocean Gallery - a concept that Cora, 45, says that she "couldn't have done better myself".

Many of her signature dishes - from her six restaurants in the United States - will feature in the Mediterranean-Californian-inspired menu here. They reflect her emphasis on "seasonal, light and sustainable seafood".

Diners can catch the bubbly Mississippi-born chef at the restaurant from Saturday to Feb 7. Also, from Saturday to Feb 28, the restaurant will feature a five-course dinner menu ($158++) with specialities such as a starter of sous vide 48 deg C king salmon; sakura shrimp risotto; and Arctic char mandarin with habanero glaze.
