Bistecca Tuscan Steakhouse
For the meat-loving dad
It’s a fact: a good steak is a gesture of love. Bistecca switched up its location and look and feel last year, and between the mesmerising art and its moody vibe, this isn’t your average steak house. Bring your A game and dive straight for the 1.1kg Florentine Wagyu T-bone steak ($188). If you can’t handle the big boy, you can opt for the 420-days grain fed MB6 Australian tenderloin beef ($65 for 200g) or the grass-fed black Angus 45-days dry-aged Scotland rib-eye beef (S$68 for 300g). This place isn’t all about the beef though, the risotto ($28) is also worth a mention. Dive into the extensive wine list and you’ll all leave more than satisfied.
Price: A la carte prices apply
