Ginett restaurant in new G Hotel, Middle Road Singapore

Hotel G Singapore is a new hotel on Middle Road near Bugis and Dhoby Ghaut MRT stations.  Unlike conventional hotels, the grand entrance at street level is occupied by a restaurant – the Ginett Restaurant.  The lobby of the G Hotel (“a chic lifestyle hotel “) is located on level 2. Placing a big restaurant right at the front of a small hotel is a bold and effective move as the prominence of the Ginett Restaurant with its hundreds of glistening hanging glasses certainly attracts the attention of anyone passing by. We can imagine that the place would look even grander when lit up at night.

Morsels Singapore is a new small restaurant in Dempsey Hill serving small bites. According to their website, “The 40-seater restaurant founded and run by Chef-Owner Petrina Loh since 2013 serves wildly creative fusion dishes which are ingredient-driven.”  Morels was previously located in Little India and moved to their current location in Dempsey in January 2017.

FOO’D by Davide Oldani at Victoria Concert Hall

Pig FOO'D by Davide Oldani

Gazetted as a national monument, the Victoria Theatre and Concert Hall (VTCH) along Empress Place has been beautifully restored. The historically important performing arts venue now offers elegant contemporary functional spaces with old-world charm. As ordinary Singaporeans, we had wondered why the resplendently restored VTCH had no space for a restaurant. It took a bit of time, but 2 years after its re-opening VTCH has added a restaurant – one with Michelin Star pedigree at that. FOO’D by Davide Oldani at Victoria Concert Hall offers a menu conceptualised by celebrity Chef Davide Oldani, chef-owner of the one Michelin-starred D’O in Cornaredo, a municipality in Milan in the Italian region Lombardy.
