After a few years of more modest openings, luxe is back in the harbour city.
The recently opened Mimi’s has more marble than the Parthenon, Meu Jardim has its own waterfall, and Firegrill is bringing back the chandelier.
“It took a team of five three weeks to put the three chandeliers together. They are three metres high, they have a thousand pieces and there are 50 light bulbs in each,” Firegrill owner Dah Lee says.
Lighting is an important component at Firegrill. The restaurant has 1000 bulbs. There are even strips of lighting on the kitchen equipment. Naturally, Lee has thought about his power bills. “LED is cheaper to run,” he says.
