Foo'd by Davide Oldani
Like the Victorian-style building it calls home, every experience at Foo'd by David Oldani is marked by unparalleled elegance.
When you want to make an impression on family, friends, business associates and even overseas guests who journey for miles to witness your marriage, an ordinary hotel ballroom won’t do. Instead, consider an opulent setting like Foo’d by Davide Oldani. What instantly charms is the elegant Victorian-style interiors. Entering the historic Victoria Theatre and Concert Hall which houses the restaurant on the ground floor, you are embraced by an undeniable air of class. The high ceilings and Corinthian columns within the restaurant take you back to an era of refined sensibilities and grace, a fitting note upon which to mark your new chapter as husband and wife.
External appearances aside, the restaurant by Italian celebrity chef Davide Oldani, famed for his one Michelin-starred restaurant D’O in Cornaredo, a 30-minute drive from Milan, impresses with its quality European cuisine that can be described as a delicate balance between tradition and innovation. Couples can choose from the exquisite menus or consult with the culinary team to create a bespoke menu, and you can be sure that every dish that arrives at your table will be made using quality, seasonal ingredients.
Of course, no meal is complete without fine drinks to match. At Foo’d by Davide Oldani, you can mingle with guests over pre-prandial cocktails at the adjacent Drink cocktail bar. Its name may sound simple and unassuming, but with award-winning mixologist Mike Cheong and sommelier Alan Au behind the bar, you know that theconcoctions shaken up by the dynamic duo will be anything but ordinary.
The restaurant is no stranger to organising high-profile events, including Singapore Tatler Homes’ A Celebration of Design 2017. It also understands that couples like to inject their personal touch to their wedding, so it promises great flexibility and one-stop services to help make your wedding planning journey a hassle-free one. Three different areas—the main dining hall, cocktail bar and an al fresco area—mean that you can create a unique atmosphere in each one. Comfortably spacious yet intimate, they can be personalised according to your wedding theme. And since videos and photographs are a part of almost every modern wedding, a large video wall in the main dining hall allows you to share special couple videos with your guests. A stage, microphone and rostrum can also be arranged for the all-important wedding speech, champagne toasting and cake-cutting ceremony.
In the spirit of offering bespoke experiences, the team will work closely with the couple to arrange a live band, floral arrangement, valet services and all the elements of your dream wedding. First impressions may be important, but at Foo’d by Davide Oldani, you get impressions that last, along with great flexibility in customisation, top-notch food, a grand setting and an easily accessible location in the city centre to boot. You can consider all the boxes for a magnificent celebration checked.
"Great food, excellent service and an elegant location...what's not to love?" - Daniel Ho and Samantha Danielle Lee
“For our Wedding in May this year, we had three celebrations in different venues, including a “cool shoes”-themed luncheon at Foo’d by Davide Oldani. A friend had recommended the place to us and we immediately fell in love with it, but it was only after trying the food and interacting with the staff that we decided to make it our wedding venue. We received many compliments about the food as well as the beautiful interiors and excellent service provided by the staff. Even older relatives who are used to more traditional wedding venues were impressed. They are still talking about the food, service and place until now! Working with the team was a breeze and they were very accommodating. We’ve already introduced friends to the place."
