Catching up at Marcello

Easily overlooked on the way to and from the more popular Publico Ristorante, Marcello is actually right next to the lobby of the InterContinental Singapore Robertson Quay and a good place to avoid the mainstream flock for a little more peace and quiet.

Under the bright lights at The Botanic

Amidst the concrete jungle of City Hall is a conspicuous newcomer to the area’s dining scene. The Botanic stands out against Raffles City’s façade almost like it’s too biophilic for the shopping mall’s dull grey exterior, as if it would be better suited for a spot in the likes of Dempsey Hill or the Singapore Botanic Gardens.
