Dine on fancy French fare and affordable top-notch wines at this restaurant in Singapore’s art district
As if we didn’t love the Bugis-Bras Basah district enough already! Complementing its myriad of eateries, unique fashion finds in Haji Lane, and lively arts and culture scene, the vibrant area now welcomes a new addition – Ginett, a chic, casual restaurant and wine bar situated at 200 Middle Road.
Helmed by acclaimed chef, Sylvain Royer, who also helms the popular Scarlett Restaurant and Wine Bar in Bangkok, Ginett serves up delish grub in a swanky and contemporary space. Feast on gourmet dishes made with wholesome ingredients such as organic lamb chops and rotisserie chicken, and sip on exclusive wines directly imported from France without making a dent in your wallet. Don’t be misled by its fancy-looking quarters; prices at Ginett are super pocket-friendly – wines range from $6 to $14 per glass and from $30 per bottle. Steal!
Featuring high ceilings, an open mezzanine with private working spaces, booths (adorned with snazzy mirrors!), communal tables and a classy marble-topped bar, Ginett is the perfect space for both work and play. Host a breakfast meeting with Ginett’s all-day menu, that includes a morning buffet and take-away breakfast orders. For a quick yet indulgent lunch with co-workers, hop over to Ginett for a two-course lunch set at only $18++. Tuck into pastas, sandwiches and hearty salads, such as the tostada chicken salad – romaine lettuce topped with roasted chicken right off the rotisserie, black beans, avocado, cheddar and crunchy tortilla strips. Sweeten the deal with desserts; you gotta try the housemade tarts with unique flavours like teh tarik and panna cotta basil.
For date nights or just a catch-up with girlfriends, Ginett makes a très yummy French-inspired dinner spread. Kick off the feast with freshly shucked Fine de Claire oysters, imported cold cuts and cheese, then dig into cuts of Australian Angus beef and kurobuta pork cooked atop a bed of apple wood charcoal. And end off with desserts like Baba au Rhum, soaked in a vanilla-infused rum syrup and molten chocolate cake, and made with 70% Valrhona Guanaja chocolate.
As for all you brunch lovers (hands up!), you’ll be thrilled to know that weekend brunch is served until 4pm, with Rosé and sparkling wines from $30 per bottle. Up your brunch game with sunny-side up eggs and crispy hash browns in slow-cooked duck gravy, or try a unique take on the classic mac & cheese, made with ham and Gruyère cheese.
