There’s a mysterious black box sitting in the middle of Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur’s Pavilion M Lounge. A box that will take those who venture into it to a galaxy far, far away.
Conceptualised by award-winning interior designer Emma Maxwell, Find Your Lucky Star is a one-of-a-kind pop-up restaurant with a celestial theme. As you step into its dim interior, the walls melt away to reveal a space seemingly suspended in the centre of a starry universe. Sidle up to the table for twelve, its glass top reflecting projections from above.
“As guests walk through the threshold of the external austere and rigid structure, they are swept from the chaotic and bustling streets of KL, into a seductive and evocative ‘other’ world. It’s a scene that is the exact opposite of what they perceive,” said Maxwell, whose work is highly sought after even by prestigious Michelin-starred restaurants.
Throughout the course, guests will experience the transformation from a dark void into a shimmering starfield, topped off with a hail of shooting stars – all while a groovy, chill playlist fills the air.
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 Danielli, Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur’s signature Italian restaurant.
The first week sees a finely crafted menu by chef Francois, with contemporary French dishes such as milk-fed veal tenderloin, foie gras foam, heirloom baby carrot and buckwheat. Known for his dishes from the South of France, chef Francois marries his French signatures with strong influences from Mediterranean Italian cuisine with an Asian twist.
From 17 to 29 December, be gratified by exquisite Italian cuisine by chef Gaetano. Promising a true Italian taste, highlights include the baked turbot with braised Mediterranean vegetables, sea urchin foam and tomato vanilla sauce.
Find Your Lucky Star is available for a limited time only, until 29 December, for lunch and dinner. The intimate affair accommodates just 12 guests for each session. For inquiries or reservations, call +603-27179027 or e-mail LuckyStar@sheraton.com.
