2/5 Book Ahead: Braci

French tipples and Italian fare are a match made in heaven. And if you’re curious to find out why, chef de cuisine Mirko Febbrile has created a lip-smacking menu paired with Paul Jaboulet Aîné wines, presented by brand ambassador Gwenaële Chesnais. The famous French wine producer has been making wines since 1834 and its most notable sip is the Hermitage La Chapelle.

Savour the likes of scampi decorated with miso and nuts, served with Condrieu Le Cassines 2016, or lamb loin paired with the sought-after Hermitage La Chapelle 1988 and 2006. The wine dinner takes place on October 23 at 7pm.

3/5 Dolce Vita

Chef de Cuisine Giorgio Maggioni has spiced up his a la carte menu with 10 additional creations. Get started with spaghetti, tossed with Sicilian red prawns lightly marinated with organic lemons sourced from the Amalfi coast, as well as Italian chilli for spicy undertones. Follow it up with handmade tortelli, encasing a luxurious combo of broccoli, smoked scamorza and premium Cantabrian anchovies.

Moving on to the mains, there is also brazino, or poached wild seabass decked with parsnip puree, radicchio, caviar and beetroot coulis. For something heavier, you can always opt for agnello, where the Dorper lamb is slow-braised until it’s impossibly tender and served with artichoke purée, salsify confit and parsley.

4/5 LaBrezza

Welcome the weekend with Giro Pizza Sunday, a time-honoured tradition in Italy where they gather family and friends for a delicious feast of—what else—pizza. Executive sous chef Fabio Granata and team have crafted an array of hand-tossed delights, made à la minute using fresh Italian produce, and finished in an authentic wood-fired oven.

Options include traditional eats such as margherita and marinara, as well as modern takes including pizzas topped with smoked salmon, salmon roe, smoked mozzarella, braised leek and white cream. The Pizza Sunday also comes with your choice of beverage and an indulgent tiramisu.

5/5 Lombardo

Take a break from indulgent Italian fare and have a burger instead. It’s a timely choice, given the fact that one of Amsterdam’s most famous joints has settled on our shores. That said, it has also launched The Most Expensive Burger in Singapore at $250, specially made by its Dutch chef-owner Martin Verdonk and available until October 21.

It’s a decadent masterpiece of 100 per cent Japanese wagyu beef stacked with pan-seared foie gras, banana shallots braised with champagne, butter-poached lobster tail, fresh Italian truffle and spicy red cabbage compote. These are bookended by 24-karat gold leaf buns. Profits from the sales will go to The Children’s Charities Association of Singapore.
