The 7-course menu takes guests around the Med and is a real travel experience through food, from Morocco to Turkey, Spain to Lebanon and everywhere in between! The experience includes a house tour with Natalie (your hostess) taking guests through key areas and interesting period features, from the five-foot way and bespoke traditional lanterns to the back alley, from the first floor to the rooftop terrace. 59JCT houses a collection of mostly Asian art and craft and a major mixed media piece by Singaporean artist Ivan David Ng.Weather permitting, the evening continues with aperitif drinks and snacks on a magical Moroccan-themed rooftop terrace for guests to enjoy the sunset and relax before dinner. The dining area overlooks a small walled garden and is open to the kitchen area, allowing guests to engage with Al (your academic turned lawyer turned banker and now chef) for an evening full of stories about his heritage, the food, Joo Chiat and more!*Wine pairing is available and enhances the experience with lovingly curated Mediterranean wines.** We can cater to most dietary restrictions (please enquire with your specific requirement beforehand)

    About Your Host
    Med@59JCT
    Med@59JCT is a venture born from Natalie's and Al's passion for food & wine and for Joo Chiat. They are both long-term residents of Joo Chiat and have contributed to and witnessed first-hand the evolution of what is today one of the coolest neighbourhoods in Singapore. Their first experience was launched in 2021 with Med@59JCT, a private dining concept centered around Al's Mediterranean culinary heritage and the beautifully renovated Peranakan shophouse they inhabit.

    hi, is it possible to accommodate 8 adults and a 3yrs old? do i have to pay additional for the 3 yrs old?
    Joanne , 09 May 2023
    Hi Joanne, We are happy to inform you that it is possible to accommodate 8 adults and a 3-year-old at our venue. However, we recommend that you send an email to our customer service team at chat@seeksophie.com to check the availability of our hosts on the date you are interested in. Our team will be happy to assist you with any queries you may have and help you plan your event. Please note that the 3-year-old child is free of charge. However, we would like to remind you that the entire event lasts 3.5 hours, which may be quite long for a 3-year-old. Also, please note that the child will have to eat the same food as the rest of the table. Hope it helps :)
    Hi. Could I bring 5 adults and my 5 year old along? I will pay for the 5 adults. My 5 year old will not be eating. Is that ok?

    Can I bring my own wine? If I book for 6 pax but need to increase to 8 pax later, is that an issue?
    Serena sim , 18 Mar 2023
    Hi Serena, We have wine pairing session as an adds on so we'd suggest you to give it a try :) We also suggest that you first make a reservation for six people. Afterward, please inform our team at least five days before your trip date if you have additional guests. Hope it helps.
    Is it possible to start the dining experience a little later - say around 7.30 pm?
    Celine, 01 Mar 2023
    Hi Celine, We can start at 7.30 pm start we do not offer the house tour or rooftop cocktails and start immediately in our dinning space with cocktails since we have to stop at 10pm as we are a residential area. Hope it helps.
