Audace offers affordable French fare
Taking over Cocotte’s former space, this newly opened French resto at Wanderlust Hotel (2 Dickson Road) is helmed by Michelin Star-awarded chef Jeremy Gillon from Le Montana in the French Alps. Priced at $28 (two-course) and $34 (three-course) per person, the set lunch menu changes three to four times a week. Highlights from the à la carte menu include steamed Mediterranean seabream ($26) with broccoli, salted lemon paste and black olive powder.
Frunatic, a healthy fine-dining concept
Just opened at Palais Renaissance (#B1-06), this new kid on the block offers natural and personalised therapeutic meals for anyone looking to get their health back on track. There are nine Therapeutic Wellness Meals ($888 for 10 meals; eight courses each) available, including Detoxifying, Weight Management, Athletic Sport Performance and Sleep Inducer.
Tuck into Modern European creations at Nouri
Hotel and restaurant group Unlisted Collection together with chef Ivan Brehm (previously of The Kitchen at Bacchanalia) have opened a new restaurant at 72 Amoy Street. The menu features unique eats like Nouri’s Silken Cheese, which resembles Italian panna cotta and Asian silken tofu depending on one’s cultural reference point. Made from fresh milk and finished with nutmeg and lemon, this dish is paired with housemade sourdough and served as a starter. For lunch, there’s an à la carte menu and a five-course omakase lunch menu ($85). Dinner showcases two tasting menus: five courses ($140) and seven courses ($170).
Chinese Noodle Bar by Blue Lotus
Chinese restaurant Blue Lotus has launched a contemporary dining concept specialising in dumplings and la mian. Located at Savourworld (2 Science Park Drive, #01-26), the Mod-Chinese restaurant includes a bar and sits up to 80 people. Look forward to hearty dishes like the signature crispy pork lard truffle la mian and grilled giant king prawn la mian.
Experience Greece at Bakalaki
Heads up, fans of Mediterranean cuisine: get your fix of tzatziki (Greek yogurt dip, $14.90), moussaka (layered casserole, $25.90) and sharing plates at this newly launched Greek dining spot.
