Restaurant Gaig Reinvigorates its Menu & Dining Space
In 2017, Carles Gaig, a celebrated chef whose name is synonymous with Catalan cuisine, opened Restaurant Gaig in Singapore,the first international outpost of the Michelin-starred restaurant in Barcelona. His daughter and 5th generation Gaig, Núria Gibert, led the restaurant with executive chef Martí Carlos Martínez, who was under the tutelage of Carles in Barcelona.
The restaurant won the hearts of local diners with its recipes, some dating back to the 19th century, and its affable heartfelt hospitality that transported them into the typical home of a Catalan family. Four years on Restaurant Gaig spreads its wings once again like its colourful avian namesake; and promises to deliver a heightened culinary experience with an enhanced and immersive menu and an expanded dining space.
This new chapter in the restaurant’s journey sees the addition of individual dining enclaves, as well as a private dining room with seating for up to 10, to the existing space. Chef Martí has also transformed the repertoire; working closely with his mentor Carles and Núria to curate an immersive Catalan menu showcasing Gaig’s heritage dishes along with innovative fare inspired by memories and traditional recipes.
