3. For the Ultimate Fine Dining Experience - Preludio
Located in Frasers Tower, Preludio is a contemporary restaurant that’s perfect for those who want to escape the CBD crowds for an intimate lunch or dinner. Executive Chef Fernando Arévalo brings a fresh perspective on fine dining with his innovative menu currently themed around the monochrome concept. Do not be fooled the black and white colours; as simple as they look, the dishes are intricate and very well thought out.
The 8-course dinner (S$218++) menu remains unrevealed till the very end. Without giving away too much, let’s just say each creation surprised us and surpassed our expectations. Inspired by the food growers and producers, the cuisine uses uncommon and premium ingredients such as white beetroot, Amalfi lemon, Primeur Sturia Caviar, smoked eel, Patagonian toothfish, and Iberico pork presa.
