For classic French cuisine dishes

Elegantly situated inside National Gallery Singapore, Odette lets you immerse in art in more ways than one. Inspired by the grandmother of owner-slash-chef Julien Royer, this restaurant prides itself on only using the purest ingredients, offering a true French dining marvel to every guest.

And since Odette is located at the prime art gallery on the island, you can only expect that the art inside the restaurant would be phenomenal. You’d see the walls studded with paintings that are basically deconstructed, magnified images of Chef Julien’s most precious ingredients. We also love the colour palette of the interiors, which really embodies the culinary principle of this 3-starred Michelin restaurant. Simple yet elegant!

And if you want to elevate your experience even further, you can avail yourself of the additional wine or cocktail tasting set to go along with your meal.

9. NAE:UM

For a fine-dining spin on authentic Korean food

As much as we find Korean BBQ irresistible, it would be also nice to have a taste of authentic Korean cuisine in a more refined atmosphere. Serving dishes from contemporary Seoul with the perfect harmony of Western techniques and Korean heritage flavours, we ultimately got our wish with NAE:UM. The restaurant’s name also literally translates to ‘a fragrance that evokes memories’, so expect that the innovative dishes would bring a sense of nostalgia as you eat. NAE:UM is quite new in Singapore’s gastronomic scene so it does not have a Michelin star yet, but we won’t be surprised if it gets awarded one in the years to come.

Contemporary fine dining concept in Singapore

Food creation is essentially a type of art as well, so Preludio takes contemporary fine dining to a whole new level. The restaurant launches curated menus in line with a ‘chapter’, using them to mark their growth in the industry. For the first chapter, Preludio released a monochrome dining concept, offering black and white dishes that were surprisingly delightful. Chapters 2 and 3 were entitled ‘Time’ and ‘The Roads’, respectively. 

And now, on their 3rd year in service, Preludio launches their fourth chapter with the theme ‘The Preludio Story’. This chapter is said to be an interlude on the restaurant’s journey throughout the years, showcasing all the well-loved dishes in the past 3 years. If this means that the comeback of Pata Negro and Dark Hour, then we are so in! But who knows, with Chef Fernando’s artistry, every dish always unravel with a surprise.
