5 Of The Best Restaurants To Impress Clients
We all know that one of the best ways to win over clients is over a good meal and some fine wine. So, with that in mind, we bring you five impressive venues to wine and dine those all-important clients.
Luke’s Oyster Bar and Chophouse
Centred right in the heart of town, Luke’s is the perfect spot if you’re looking for a chic private lunch with a contemporary venue. Famed for serving fresh succulent oysters and one of the best burgers in town, the seafood is sourced directly from the waters of New England and flown in daily. Another major showstopper is the ‘Travis Burger’ – perfected over a decade by Chef Travis Masiero.
Perched on the 70th floor of Swissotel The Stamford, JAAN is an intimate restaurant dedicated to showcasing innovative modern French cuisine. The ornate interior that boasts a beautiful silver free-form chandelier is eclipsed only by two things: the breath-taking view of Singapore and the exquisite food. Relish signature creations such as the rosemary smoked organic egg with chorizo iberico and celeriac puree, while soaking in the view of the Marina Bay area and hopefully sealing that all-important deal all at once.
Ranked 14th in the World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2017 and San Pellegrino’s Best Restaurant in Singapore for many years, this two Michelin Star French restaurant is sure to ‘wow’ your client. Furnished with chef André Chiang’s own pottery and art pieces as well as some of his self-designed furniture, this restaurant décor is best described as understated elegance and a true testament to chef André’s dedication to detail. The eight-course Octaphilosophy tasting menu is the only option available, with the only constant course being the warmed foie gras jelly served with a black truffle coulis – Chef André’s first original creation.
Located in Chijmes, Whitegrass is a fine dining restaurant offering Australian cuisine with a touch of Asian. Chef Sam Aisbett’s training under culinary luminaries like Peter Gilmore and Tetsuya Wakuda is clearly reflected in the adventurous menu. Signature dishes showcase the fusion of the two cultures, such as the slow-braised Mangalica pork enhanced with fiddlehead ferns and served in a tasty seaweed and pork broth, tiger abalone, fermented cabbage and white turnip. The desserts also highlight local produce such as the Jackfruit ice cream with coconut mousse, fresh longan and shard of almond ginger cake.
Serious about their food but one of the more fun fine dining restaurants in town, Tippling Club offers up modern gastronomy with a touch of theatre. Ranked 11th in Asia by Asia’s 50 Best Bars 2017 and 27th in Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants 2017, the restaurant has a knack for experimentation. Examples of such dishes are one of chef-owner Ryan Clift’s most innovative creations, foie gras, not pan-seared as is the common preparation, but piped and served as cream atop a spiced gaufrette. The culinary artistry and aesthetic interest Tippling Club provides is an experience sure to leave a lasting impression.
