Voyages by Alain Ducasse is a celebration of contemporary multi-ethnic cuisine, with a menu that distills 30 years of culinary travels from chef Alain Ducasse on the Southern hemisphere and throughout Asia. The restaurant is one of two restaurants and a bar found in Morpheus, the latest shining jewel in Macau’s City of Dreams. It is the only resort in the world that houses the unparalleled presence of the legendary chef.
The scale of the gastronomic project is a significant undertaking, and reflects the singular commitment of Mr. Lawrence Ho, Chairman and CEO of Melco Resorts and Entertainment, to create a culinary guest experience of exceptional caliber.
The menu at Voyages by Alain Ducasse traverses across the diverse Southern hemisphere and the continent of Asia, with dishes that translate this culinary heritage through the signature lens of chef Ducasse. The restaurant’s offerings are both an expedition and celebration of what the region has to offer.
The journey opens with a hand-picked selection of dishes to suit a variety of palettes. Savor the flavors of the sea with raw Taï fish and sea urchins. Otherwise, sample the restaurant’s inventive take on shrimp toast with katsuoboshi flakes.
Diners can also relish the crab cake with sweetcorn velouté, and the delectable Thai-style razor clams with samphire. Other highlights include a delicate lettuce broth with sea scallop and gold caviar, and a creative take on the traditional Chinese XO sauce.
For main courses, Voyages by Alain Ducasse provides the best of the land and sea. Indulge in the flavorful zaatar shoulder of lamb, spit-roasted duck with citrus accents, or a succulent grilled Wagyu beef with green chilli. Alternatively, taste the Tara fish with mango and coconut, peppered king crab or blue fin tuna accompanied with Indonesian satay sauce. A selection of grains and vegetables will also accompany these main dishes, including crispy rice with green asparagus and green beans with red chili.
To finish the experience, guests can revisit well-loved classics, like a decadent “Paris-Macau” dessert with peanuts and kumquats, or the restaurant’s innovative take on the after-dinner mint. Alternatively, try original creations with ingredients like grapefruit and hibiscus, and coconut, apricot and granola.
Thomas Ferrand, chief sommelier for Voyage by Alain Ducasse, has carefully crafted a wine selection that highlights the best vineyards from the old and new worlds. Highlights include the 2016 Moss Wood Chardonnay from Western Australia’s Margaret River, as well as the 2014 Domaine Gauby Les Calcinaires from Southern France’s Roussillon wine region.
Magic happens at the bar of Voyages by Alain Ducasse, with drinks and snacks that will tantalize the taste buds and spark conversation. Key to the bar’s experience is a trolley, where mixologists will whip up custom-made concoctions, including Martinis and Bellinis, with a distinct Asian twist.
Voyages by Alain Ducasse is not only a feast for the nose and tongue, but also the eyes. One side of the restaurant space will feature a series of prominent installations by French artist Léa Maupetit. The illustrator has drawn 100 of the most iconic Asian ingredients, all of which are mounted and proudly displayed on a wall. The other side of the restaurant also features an octopus painting by Parisian artist Romain Bernini, who is known for his evocative use of vivid colors.
Voyages by Alain Ducasse is led by Executive Chef Alexandre Viriot and Restaurant Director Quentin Arnould.
