Acclaimed restaurateur and award-winning chef Josh Niland will star at the helm of the signature restaurant at The Singapore Edition hotel which will later open in November 2023. As Niland’s first restaurant outside of Australia, the yet-to-be-named establishment will be centred around a “fish steakhouse” concept with ethically sourced seafood.

From cut-to-order fish to crown roasts and cutlets, the restaurant will offer gastronomes an opportunity to experience Niland’s “fin-to-scale” philosophy – one that shot the seafood specialist to fame back in 2016 – while tapping into the finest ingredients from world-class producers.

For the uninitiated, Niland’s resume is impressive. He clocked in at some of Sydney’s best restaurants and even the legendary three-Michelin-starred restaurant The Fat Duck by chef Heston Blumenthal in London. In 2016, he and his wife Julie Niland – who's also his business partner – went on to open their first restaurant, Saint Peter, which is now considered one of Australia’s finest dining establishments. The couple also opened their second restaurant, Petermen, right on Sydney’s Northern Shores earlier this year.

As for the Singaporean outpost, diners can expect plates that aren’t far from the signature Saint Peter DNA. It will certainly showcase Niland's unorthodox approach to honouring the entire fish in the same way that a butcher prepares, cuts, dry-ages and cooks with meats. However, it is likely that Niland will tease the palate with Singaporean influence and ingredients here.

Singapore happens to be the location for The Edition's first hotel in Southeast Asia. It will debut a 204-room property nestled at the pulse of the upper Orchard Road shopping district coupled with five restaurants and bar venues, a rooftop pool, spa, and fitness centre, as well as over 681 square meters of indoor and outdoor meeting space for events.
