Kuala Lumpur – Getting in the holiday spirit, Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur Hotel proudly presents “Find your Lucky Star”, a one-of-a-kind pop-up restaurant, conceptualized by multi award-winning global interior designer, Emma Maxwell. Drawing inspiration from European flavours, the celebratory menus are curated by two talented chefs; Chef Francois Mermilliod of famed French dining restaurant in Singapore, Bar-A-Thym as well as Chef Gaetano Di Stefano of Villa Danieli, the signature Italian restaurant at Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur. The mesmerizing dining experience is available for a limited time only from 12 to 29 December 2017 for lunch and dinner and each session accommodates only 12 guests.

“In our endeavour to constantly satiate Kuala Lumpur’s appetite for new and exciting dining experiences, we are thrilled to have Emma Maxwell and Chef Francois Mermilliod to collaborate on this unique experience,” commented Frank Beck, Managing Director of Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur Hotel. “Kuala Lumpur is such a diverse gastronomic city, we aim to continuously present culinary innovation for our guests and creating unforgettable memories especially this holiday season,” he added.

Sparked from a simple question on “How do we make our dreams come true?”, designer Emma Maxwell in her signature layered, worldly and eclectic style came up with “Find your Lucky Star” pop-up restaurant concept based on the foundation of seeing things a little differently.

Creative mastermind, Emma describes the journey, “As guests walk through the threshold of the external austere and rigid structure, they are swept from the chaotic and bustling streets of Kuala Lumpur and submerged into a seductive and evocative “other” world. A scene that is the exact opposite of what they perceived from the rigidity of the exterior of the structure.”

She added, “They will then, venture into a fantastical scene that initially doesn’t make sense to the human condition. Guests are placed “upside down” in an evocative landscape, where the clouds and the tree tops are the basis for the floor and walls.” Throughout the course, guests will experience the transformation from the dark void above them moving into a shimmering star field before crowning the experience by searching for their lucky star and making a wish.

“Find your Lucky Star” pop-up restaurant concept will feature a 4-course lunch or a 6-course dinner with wine pairing or non-alcoholic drink. From 12 to 16 December, guests will taste the finely crafted menu by Chef Francois with contemporary French dishes such as, milk-fed veal tenderloin, foie gras foam, heirloom baby carrot and buckwheat, paired with Capel Vale Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon. Known for his dishes from the South of France, Chef Francois marries his French signatures with strong influence from Mediterranean Italian cuisine with an Asian twist for a heartwarming festive feel.
