Oscar Postma Takes on General Manager Role in Regent Singapore

The Basillissimo Dinner Menu at Basilico (located within Regent Singapore) is a year-long dining affair that features a different menu each quarter of the year as part of the three-course Basillissimo (The Best of Basilico) dinner - this includes an appetiser, an à la carte main course as well as a dessert buffet that you definitely have to leave some (stomach) space for.

New Harlem-inspired Menu at Manhattan (Regent Singapore)

Tucked away quietly in Regent Singapore, Manhattan is one of Singapore's best bars (it ranks amongst the world's top 50 bars too!) and as much as I wish to keep it a secret, it has to be shared. When I checked out the Hell's Kitchen district last year, I fell in love with the smokey Mad Dog (S$24++) . As such, when I got invited by the kind folks at Manhattan to try out the brand new Harlem district (read: menu), I knew I had to bring my drinking liver.
