Larry Reutens of Masak Makes a (Brief) Return to the Kitchen By Jacelyn Kee • 09/03/15 8:19pm Once anointed one of Singapore’s culinary ambassadors to New York, Larry Reutens has kept a low profile since his East Village restaurant Masak– meaning “to cook” in Malay– closed two years ago. Reutens’ restaurant served as a laboratory where he was able to let his imagination run wild, resulting in a sumptuous melding of his Singaporean heritage and his Manhattan kitchen experience. Whether you were fortunate enough to dine at Masak or not, you can taste Larry’s culinary creations this month when he returns to the kitchen to whip up several feasts during the Singapore Arts Festival.
