Balzac Brasserie (Fort Canning)

Formerly found at the Rendezvous Hotel, this quintessential French restaurant has traded the highly trafficked zone for a place more fitting to its romantic outfit. It now has an equally cozy but airier space at the Pinacotheque, with gray and beige interiors, vintage wooden furniture and a Parisian bistro feel. Chef-owner Jean-Charles Dubois consistently delivers by serving upscale bistro classics like the much-loved lobster bisque and braised wagyu beef cheeks.
