Now we’ve had our share of dining experiences that majestically overlook the SG skyline, but the transcendent perspective from Artemis (40 stories up high!) might just take the cake. Its al fresco bar is one swish hangout where you can take in the stratospheric air with a custom cocktail in hand – try the Toffee or not Toffee (Artemis ‘all spice’ rum, Domaine de Canton ginger liqueur, toffee apple and ginger bitters) for a kick. That said, Artemis’ Mediterranean food selection is just as sensational as its panoramic view. The gambero rosso marries the explosive sweetness of the flash-blanched prawns with the tanginess of gazpacho, and the Alaskan king crab salad serves fresh (not flaky) chunks of meat that tease with contrasting textures of crunchy grilled pimento peppers and buttery avocado. We recommend the feta- and ricotta-stuffed beetroot tortellini for dates, for the garnet hue makes it look like red roses on a plate. And from the grill, we’d go with the Scottish Loch Fyne salmon that shocks with a consistency as smooth as tartare, or the iberico pork presa if you like a spicy wallop – chew together with the saccharine Sicilian tomatoes to neutralise the heat! And whatever you do, please try the fluffy, cloud-like apricot and lavender soufflé for dessert – you won’t regret it.
