Essential Elements Event Series

Valid Until:


Four dinners themed on one of the natural elements – Water, Earth, Air and Fire – will bring two leading chefs together to create a six-course tasting menu. The Reverie Saigon will pay tribute to this foundational concept with a multi-faceted event never before seen in this country.

Leading local and international culinary minds brought together to be inspired by, and evolve from, these bedrock elements of nature. Five events, spanning four months, in which your conceptions of what fine dining is and can be will be challenged and confounded. And in which all elements will be aligned.



The first event’s theme is Water. Café Cardinal’s Paul Pettini and Nen Light’s Summer Le will come together to create a six-course menu, with three courses prepared by each chef.

Renowned for weaving stories through her menus, Chef Le tells the tale of her seaside home of Danang, while Pettini hails from the island of Corsica.

Price: VND2,888,000++/pax,  with wine pairing option at VND1,400,000++
Pool Terrace | March 30, 2023 | 6:00pm onwards



The second event, themed on Earth witnesses Café Cardinal’s Paul Pettini joining forces with Da Vittorio Saigon’s Matteo Fontana.

The soil that grows the most prized and desired truffles in the world, the century-old olive trees producing the finest oils, and the unique San Marzano tomato will showcase what the earth has to offer at its best.

Price: VND3,588,000++/pax,  with the wine pairing option at VND1,400,000++
Da Vittorio Saigon | April 20, 2023 | 6:00pm onwards



We will see Café Cardinal’s Paul Pettini and Lavelle Library’s Thao Na combining their talents in the third event- Air dinner.

The air we breathe, the soft caress of a cool breeze, the wafting aromas or beautiful food slowly cooking, is why Air is the theme for this dinner.

Price: VND2,888,000++//pax,  with the wine pairing option at VND1,400,000++
The Reverie Lounge |May 18, 2023 | 6:00pm onwards



Fire dinner will feature Café Cardinal’s Paul Pettini and Esta Saigon’s Francis Thuan heating up the kitchen with an interesting six-course menu.

Fire made cooking possible, transforming all raw things just like magic. The fourth event, themed on Fire, is perhaps the most elemental and will be held at Café Cardinal on Thursday, June 22nd.

Price: VND2,888,000++/pax,  with the wine pairing option at VND1,400,000++
Café Cardinal | June 22, 2023 | 6:00pm onwards



Finally, the Evolutions dinner will bring together all the elements to create something greater than the sum of their parts.

This not-to-be-missed evening will feature the combined culinary talents of Café Cardinal’s Paul Pettini, Esta Saigon’s Francis Thuan, Lavelle Library’s Thao Na, Nen Light’s Summer Le, Da Vittorio Saigon’s Matteo Fontana, and finally, The Reverie Saigon’s Executive Chef Marcelo Geraldini.

Price: VND2,988,000++/pax,  with the wine pairing option at VND1,400,000++
Café Cardinal | July 21, 2023 | 6:00pm onwards
