Since its opening in 2008, Forlino has long been the go-to place for impressing your date with a romantic dinner set against the stunning backdrop of Marina Bay. The restaurant has since undergone multiple revamps – but none quite extensive as its latest. So much so that it's even changed its name.
Riviera Forlino's new chef, Rémy Carmignani, hails from the Southern coast of France and has spent over 15 years working in cities like Paris, Doha and Marrakech and brings his international experience to the plate. It's seen in dishes like the handmade tortellini ($28/$38) – parcels of Moroccan tangia-style lamb shoulder spiced with cumin and preserved lemons slow-cooked for seven hours wrapped in pasta that sit in an elegant lab broth. Staying true to his riviera roots, he's also introduced a lobster and shellfish bouillabaisse ($68) to that menu that's packed with rich, crustacean flavour. The lavish lobster soup is a luxurious upgrade to the humble fisherman's stew and comes packed with slivers of blue lobster, scallops and the catch of the day. We recommend saving your bread – or asking for a fresh round – to mop up the soup.
