The team at Private Affairs put in a lot of effort, overhauling the entire space, to create an entirely new and inviting experience for their diners, new and old, even adding an elevator! Judging from the fashionable crowd that dine here, in their crisp white shirts and impossibly high heeled shoes, i am sure they are thankful for such an inclusion. With such attention to detail to the space, it's no surprise that they worked as hard to make the food here really shine!
Chef Desmond Lee, whose previous work includes assisting chef Julien Bompard from Le Saint Julien and even a stint with British celebrity chef Gordon Ramsey, is a new addition to the Private Affairs team and currently heads up the kitchen. He adds his Midas touch to the dishes here such as the Capellini pasta with seared scallop, truffle oil and parmesan cheese that makes them absolutely memorable. After your meal, be sure to head up to the rooftop bar, enjoy the beautiful skyline, and nurse your full tummy with a sophisticated cocktail or a single malt whisky. Surrounded by beautiful people, all sharply dressed, while enjoying the good conversation under the gorgeous night sky, you may even be tempted to light up a cigar à la Don Draper. (Mar 2012)
