SINGAPORE, April 2010 – Scaling the heights of international restaurant accolades, French nouvelle establishment Jaan par André has set a historic record for Singapore with its debut at No. 39 amongst the top restaurants in the renowned San Pellegrino World's 50 Best Restaurants List 2010 – the highest debut ever for a Singapore restaurant. This is undoubtedly an extraordinary achievement for Jaan par André which is part of Equinox Complex – Swissôtel The Stamford, Singapore's signature lifestyle, entertainment and epicurean destination.

Achieving a position in the high-profile S.Pellegrino World's 50 Best Restaurants List is considered one of the restaurant world's most sought-after accolades, comparable to receiving a Michelin-star. Released annually, the List is the result of an extensive poll of the world’s most celebrated chefs, renowned food critics, leading restaurateurs and well-travelled gourmands – an impressive collective known as 'The World’s 50 Best Restaurants Academy'.

Sharing his elation at the awards ceremony on 26 April at London's Guildhall, Aiden McAuley, General Manager of Swissôtel The Stamford, Singapore and Regional Vice President Asia Pacific for Swissôtel Hotels & Resorts said, "Swissôtel The Stamford and Equinox Complex are extremely proud of Jaan par André's spectacular debut in this year's List – an honour which we must dedicate to our extraordinary culinary and service teams who epitomise our credo 'A Passion For Perfection', and have been instrumental in realising our vision of Jaan par André as an international destination for dining excellence."

Nigel Moore, Director of Food and Beverage Services for Swissôtel The Stamford added, "Jaan par André, as well as Equinox Complex's other well-established offerings like New Asia and Equinox Restaurant, have consistently set benchmarks for Asia's gastronomic and entertainment scenes, having always emerged at the top of their categories in local and regional awards. This latest and very prestigious honour for Jaan par André will only spur the team on to up the ante again, as it has done many times in the past, and to continue Equinox Complex's pioneering efforts in the lifestyle, culinary and entertainment arena."

This distinction adds to the title of Singapore's Restaurant Of The Year, which Jaan par André received recently at the World Gourmet Summit Awards of Excellence on 10 April 2010.

An extraordinary effort and tireless commitment from every one of Jaan par André's team members has seen this intimate 40-seat restaurant rise to claim its ranks amongst some of the world's most coveted dining destinations. Incredible acclaim – from international food critics, restaurant guides and the bon vivant set – has also propelled Jaan par André to achieve pinnacles such as Asia's 4th Best Restaurant in the much-respected Miele Guide 2009/2010.
