The Manor is better described as a multi-experience dining destination, with five unique venues known as The Verandah, The Dining Room, The Wine Gallery, The Penthouse Kitchen and The Library. This ‘mansion’ is located at the prestigious St. Regis Macao. As guests step inside The Verandah, where the culinary journey begins, they will learn that on their next visit, the experience can be entirely different.
With robust flavors that burst with color, each dish at The Manor is a masterful work of art. The team of chefs at The Manor, led by Executive Sous Chef Gaetano Palumbo, present plates of exquisitely prepared dishes of prime cut meats from Japan, Australia, Northern Spain and grass-fed beef from Ireland, as well as an extraordinary selection of seafood from Hokkaido, Tasmania, and France.
Gaetano Palumbo, Executive Sous Chef for The Manor restaurant at The St. Regis Macao, is extremely proud of his creations. Originally from Sicily, where cooking is a central part of the community and family life, the chef brings his cuisine to another level. “Everyone in Sicily has a passion for good food and great produce, and learning the art of cooking is just as important as enjoying the pleasure of eating fine food,” Chef Gaetano says. “Growing up in such an environment, I was drawn to cook from a very young age and have grown even more passionate about food as I have traveled around the world. Now that I have the opportunity to work at The St. Regis Macao, I feel so fortunate to be able to scour the world for the best ingredients imaginable. With these premium ingredients, we are able to create exquisite dishes that have personality and their own voice.”
The culinary experience starts with the highly coveted Culatello di Zibello from the Italian family farm of Massimo Spigaroli, considered the pinnacle of Italy’s artisanal food culture. The Huffington Post calls Massimo Spigaroli “The Holy Rock Star of Italian Cured Ham” and Prince Charles, who is well known for being picky about his food, loves Spigaroli’s Culatello ham.
Then comes the Miyazaki wagyu, the highest quality of black-haired cattle beef in Japan, surpassing that of wagyu from Kobe. In order to maintain the highest standard of Miyazaki wagyu, Japanese authorities have restricted supplies of this prestigious beef to authorized distributors only. The Manor serves the Robata-grilled Miyazaki wagyu A5 with heirloom baby carrots, flavored with the exotic Sichuan chillies.
Last but not least, we urge you to try the Robata-grilled corn, miso butter, sweet green chilli, parmesan powder, purslane and seasoned with pistachio. This unique dish combines the flavors of Japan through the Robata style of cooking; Italy with a sprinkling of Parmesan and Mexico, where the corn is sourced. There is really nothing as comforting as Italian food when you combine with the artistry of someone like Palumbo however, you get perfection. Their breakfast is served from 6:30am to 10:30am while lunch is from 12:00nn to 3:00pm. If you’d like to visit for dinner, they are open from 6:00pm to 11:00pm while the Verandah starts from 12:00nn to 11:00pm.
