Food has always been a huge part of Singapore’s culture. It brings people together as we bond over delicious food, filling the room with joy and laughter. Apart from our local hawker centres, food courts and fast-food restaurants, you can experience fine dining at some of the most sophisticated restaurants in Singapore.
Here are four fine dining restaurants for your next dinner date or family get together.
Odette by Chef Julien Royer
“She showed me how remarkable dishes can come from the purest ingredients and the importance of adding a ‘little something’ to create dishes that excites the palate and fills the heart.”
Odette features the modern French cuisine, guided by Chef Julien’s respect for seasonality. It also offers a wine list that celebrates men and women who dedicate their lives to perfecting their signature.
Led by Singapore artist, Dawn Ng and themed ‘The Theory of Everything’, the art of Odette explores the beauty of the ingredients from Chef Julien’s kitchen. The interior of Odette was designed by Sacha Leong from Universal Design Studios, as it mirrors Chef Julien’s approach of keeping the integrity of the ingredients. Its elegance shines through with the use of a soft colour palette.
