Drawing inspiration from 1930s French brasseries, Aux Beaux Arts at MGM has an award-winning wine list to match, with a detailed section on France at its core. The wine team comprises Head Sommelier Hedi Lao, Sommelier David Chang, and Sommelier/Manager Nadège Lagenette. Together, the team has thoughtfully curated an outstanding and clear wine list, which also identifies organic viticulture, biodynamic viticulture, and direct imports by MGM wines on their list.
The culinary team has devised a range of creative French plates to showcase the restaurant’s distinct flavors of Paris. Some of their signature dishes include classic beef tenderloin Rossini with potato galette and Périgourdine sauce, and French Dover sole à la meunière.
Aux Beaux Arts offers an intimate and distinctive dining experience in its specially arranged Wine Cellar, hosting an impressive two-story glass-encased altar to the winemaker’s art. You have an opportunity to be spoiled in the sommelier’s personally chosen wine selection, from the 10,000 bottles displayed from ground to ceiling. Consequently, Aux Beaux Arts is the perfect place to enjoy brunch on its stunning sunlit terrace or savor an exquisite dinner as its top chef treats you to the finest of Parisian delicacies with faultless wine pairing. It also offers a spacious interior with urbane and inviting décor.
The Champagne selection features multiple back vintages from all the major iconic producers, including Bollinger, Krug, Pol Roger, Veuve Clicquot, and Taittinger, to name but a few, in addition to fizz from smaller producers such as Armand de Brignac. The 2018 judges were particularly impressed by the spirits list, in particular the extensive range of gins.
