Restaurant Review: Musket Room at NoLIta

The news that Matt Lambert, the chef who made Musket room a lone New Zealand cuisine outpost at NoLIta, had been replaced by Mary Attea in February 2020 hasn’t exactly caught on across the country. At least I haven’t heard of it. Then the engine of the restaurant economy died a few weeks later, and […]

Woodruff is a restaurant everyone in Ireland should know

It’s hard to follow. I had heard that Woodruff at Stepaside was good and that chef Simon Williams and manager Colm Maguire had ambitions, but I had obviously not paid enough attention to that. Woodruff isn’t just “good” – it’s a restaurant everyone in Ireland should know. In case you are unfamiliar, Stepaside is a […]

Restaurant review: Bluto’s Greek-inspired menu is exceptional

Take some Shalom Y’All to Israeli riffs. Add the leaping flames of beef and meats roasting over bare coals. Add Tusk’s clever seasonal salads and a little Mad Greek Deli neighborhood vibe. Mix it up with a soft room bathed in light, ouzo-based cocktails and a mind-blowing house-made playlist of hip, jazz […]

French Fold unveils a new space at the Palais Renaissance

A new chapter begins for the French galette restaurant – this time in a 70s-inspired space at the Palais Renaissance. If French Fold’s consistently booked location at Telok Ayer is anything to go by, its second outlet should be a hit. Located opposite Merci Marcel, it sports a much more gloomy and more masculine aesthetic. […]

In the mad crush that comes with preparing for Christmas, with everyone back in frantic socializing guaranteed by an anxiety we’ve suppressed but never been able to quell, the serenity in this corner of Campbell’s stores is just that that the doctor ordered.

Indigenous restaurant review: Menu challenges everything Veganuary stands for

SSo far, 2022 hasn’t been the breath of fresh air we needed. Among the big news lines last week was the story of a Turkish farmer who decided to donate cow VR headsets to make them feel like they’re outside in sunny pastures, instead of inside barns. This apparently caused them to produce more milk. […]

Restaurant review: Rosemead by Jigger & Pony Group brings modern California fine dining to the CBD, Lifestyle News

Once a starchy affair of white tablecloths and dress codes, Singapore’s food scene has let loose in recent years. A far cry from elegant tunes and an arsenal of silverware, the gastronomy is moving towards a relaxed and lively experience, supported by fun games of flavors. And nowhere is this shift more evident than in […]
