Why Go?

The restaurant’s name alone (Italian for luxe), will make you expect fine food and service. Add the name of the restaurateur, the chef Margarita Fores, and you are assured of comfort food and luxe dining. From starters to desserts, every dish is planned for the discerning palate.

Tatler Tips

Lusso has a concise menu that contains comfort foods but given an elegant twist, like the salmon tartare millefeuille, deviled eggs, truffle potato crisps, and foie gras brûlée. Depending on the season, you will chance the rarely available burrata which can serve as your appetiser or side dish. The perfectly cooked eggs en cocotte has three choices for toppings— foie gras, bottarga, or Spanish caviar, a dish that is sure to win the brunch crowd. Popular mains include freshly baked spinach taglierini with Asiago cheese and Parma ham, luxe mac and cheese with pancetta, and the much-talked about Lusso demipound burger, stuffed with foie gras right in the middle of the patty. Delicious desserts range from chocolat pot-de-crème to pecan tart to the unique gelato in olive oil and sea salt.
