ATLAS

Housing the world's most diverse collection of gin, you'll never run out of options at this grand Art Deco-inspired bar complete with gold and bronze trimmings reminiscent of the era. Not sure what to try first? Master of Gin Jason Williams and his team will get you acquainted with the collection. Simply tell them the types of gin you enjoy (or the flavour profile of drinks you prefer) and they'll make a suitable recommendation. But it's not all gin on the menu, have your cocktails prepared by head bartender Roman Foltán, and be attended by maître d' Carla Davina Soares, both from London’s award-winning Artesian at The Langham. In the kitchen, executive chef Daniele Sperindio dishes out scrumptious bar food 'til late.

Po Restaurant

Po Restaurant

The Lo & Behold Group teams up with Willin Low of Wild Rocket, the pioneer of Mod-Sin cuisine, to bring you Po.

Don’t miss the restaurant’s signature popiah platter ($28), where you have a hand in assembling the dish your way, just like if popo made it at home.

Crackerjack

Crackerjack

Brought to you by the same guys behind 28 HongKong Street, Crackerjack is the hip new-bar-on-the-block at Tanjong Pagar. But it's not just about the cocktails – the cafeteria-style joint also serves hearty plates and killer cups of joe brewed by former US barista champion Bronwen Serna.

Botanico
Restaurants

Botanico

Located on the second floor of The Garage, Botanico serves seasonal cuisine inspired by the rich flora and fauna that surrounds it. Expect dishes like lamb tartare ($20) served with mustard ice cream and fried capers, chargrilled carabinero prawns ($28) with a side of mellow rice cooked in a rich prawn bisque, and huge Japanese scallops ($27) atop Jerusalem artichoke puree.

Ginett Restaurant & Wine Bar
Restaurants

Ginett Restaurant & Wine Bar

With a glass of wine going for $6 and bottles priced from $30, Ginett is set to be your new favourite watering hole. Two-course set lunches go for $18 while dinner is a more extravagant French affair. Don't miss the 1 Meter Board ($50) that's packed with five different types of cheese and cold cuts alongside pork pâté. Other signatures include dishes such as the Australian Angus beef (from $39), Kurobuta pork (from $24) and organic lamb chop ($42) – all cooked on an applewood charcoal grill.

Béni
Restaurants

Béni

From its perch on the fourth floor of Mandarin Gallery, this one-Michelin-starred spot has moved a couple of storeys down to a larger, more elegant space. Other than a change of space, everything that won Béni its star has remained. That includes chef Kenji Yamanaka, who marries his training in fine French cuisine and love for Japanese food in the menus here: pick from a four- ($68) or seven-course ($128) set for lunch, and a six- ($178) or eight-course set ($258) for dinner. As you'd expect of a joint of this calibre, the food is faultless: refined French techniques are used to make the most of the stellar Japanese produce. Whatever you do, opt for a menu with Ozaki wagyu – it's chef Yamanaka's speciality – on it. Hand-picked by the chef for its lightness, silkiness and richness in umami, the beef pairs beautifully with his classic French-inspired sauces.
