The new year often signals new beginnings, and that rings true with new food offerings about town. Venture into a brand new chapter at Preludio, or celebrate a new era at Brasserie Les Saveurs.

With an emphasis on fresh seasonal produce, be treated to a playful medley of flavours, textures and colours. Pair your dishes with ‘scales of time’, a wine programme curated by Chip Steel. Choose bottles from sections such as Age of Vine – all above 70 years old – or Time to Drink Up, which features rare wines approaching their prime. Running its course over four seasons, Preludio will offer a new menu at the turn of each season. The 4-course Executive Set Lunch starts at S$58++.
