Sabai Fine Thai On The Bay

If you’re in the mood for some spicy Thai fair, this bayside restaurant is cooking up elevated Bangkok street food (Apr 8) where the restaurant gets transformed into a bustling street full of delicious aromas.

The Prime Society

The interestingly named Cool Climate Wine Dinner (Apr 9) at this specialty steak restaurant involves a five-course affair with paired wines.

Gattopardo Ristorante di Mare

The seafood-centric Italian restaurant at this Tras Street shophouse hosts an extravagant eight-course dinner covering Italy’s distinct regions.

The dinner also comes with a wine pairing, of course. Book now!

Lewin Terrace

The fusion French-Japanese restaurant hidden in lush Fort Canning Park crafts a five-course sake pairing dinner (Apr 27) that explores the five tastes: bitter, salty, umami, sour and sweet. While each course is paired with exquisite sakes (preceded by informative introductions) like junmai daiginjo and junmaishu, the menu is full of fresh dishes like fish marinated in konbu and fresh oysters in sea water jelly. Book now!

Fordham & Grand

Best known as one of the best late-night supper restaurants and wine bars in town, the speakeasy-style joint takes cues from New Zealand chef Peter Gunn’s spontaneous pop-up food movement for an IDES (Apr 30-May 2) six-course dinner involving plates like celeriac cooked in almond milk, monkfish sancho and a wagyu short rib.
