Written by Ben Blaschke

The highly anticipated launch of Macau’s newest integrated resort is finally upon us with Melco-Crown’s Studio City opening today – and it is set to become more than just Asia’s entertainment capital.

Studio City last night unveiled details of the impressive array of signature restaurants it expects to position the property among the region’s finest culinary destinations. Among the roster of internationally acclaimed chefs to call Studio City home are Michelin-starred Chef Alain Ducasse, world-leading Chef Pâtissier Pierre Hermé, master of Hawaii Regional Cuisine Chef Alan Wong, “Global Chef Award” winner Chef Hidemasa Yamamoto and World Champion of Chinese Cooking Gold Medalist Chef Tam Kwok Fung.

All, along with French Michelin-starred Chef Guillaume Galliot – Executive Chef of The Tasting Room at sister property City of Dreams – will be on hand today to prepare a unique dining experience for the Studio City Grand Opening Gala Dinner.

Studio City will include Macau’s first Pierre Hermé Paris boutique, Chef Tam’s “Pearl Dragon” and Chef Yamamoto’s first Macau restaurant. “Hide Yamamoto” will see market fresh fish flown in daily from Tsukiji market for use at the special sushi bar; a sizzling teppanyaki grill, a robata station for cooking quality ingredients such as wagyu beef as well as homemade ramen prepared through a 110-year-old traditional technique.

Chef Alain Ducasse, with 19 career Michelin stars to his name, will also open his new Macau restaurant at Studio City in 2016 which has been designed by Pierre-Yves Rochon.
