Gracious Hospitality Management announces plans to open COTE Singapore, the brand’s first international venture, bringing the flavors and allure of the Michelin-starred restaurant overseas. In the heart of Orchard Road, COTE Singapore will be located within COMO Orchard, opening in Q4 2023.
Drawing inspiration from its renowned counterparts in New York & Miami, COTE Singapore will remain true to COTE’s philosophy, marrying the conviviality of Korean BBQ and the prime cuts of an American steakhouse while introducing seasonal ingredients. The menu will feature the iconic Butcher’s Feast, offering diners a chance to experience four cuts of quality meat and a variety of Korean-inspired side dishes.
Designed by Modellus Novus, the New York City-based architecture firm behind COTE Korean Steakhouse’s two existing locations, the concept will premiere a variety of immersive spaces offering a new level of enveloping atmosphere and experience, including a cocktail bar, music room and more.
“I feel an extreme sense of gratitude and excitement as our team is getting ready to make our international debut in one of the most diverse cities in the world. I have always been inspired by the vibrant culture and growing culinary scene of Singapore and having the opportunity to work with Christina Ong and one of the most prominent family-owned hotel groups, being a part of their pivotal homecoming moment, is a dream come true,” said Simon Kim, Proprietor of Gracious Hospitality Management. “COTE Singapore marks a momentous phase for the brand and I can’t wait to share our version of a Korean Steakhouse with the gastronomes of this lively city.”
This opening will mark the first phase of Gracious Hospitality Management’s growth plans, which includes not only the international expansion into Singapore, but also the forthcoming COQODAQ, a new fried chicken concept opening later this year in New York City, and a three-floor project at 550 Madison Avenue on the horizon.
COTE Singapore will be housed within COMO Orchard, an integrated and immersive experience spread over 19 floors in the heart of Orchard Road in Singapore. Bringing together COMO Group’s signature house brands – Club21 (fashion), COMO Metropolitan Singapore (hospitality), COMO Cuisine (dining), COMO Shambhala (wellness), new partnerships, and exclusive services into one inspiring lifestyle space, the opening of COMO Orchard is poised to be a transformative moment for both brands and the city.
