I believe this is the only guide you need so do bookmark it and check back often as it will be updated constantly. I can't keep track of all the changes that take place so while I strive to keep this list as accurate as possible, I'll advise you to make a reservation where possible, and give the eateries a call to double check! If you know of a dog-friendly venue that's not on this list, please let me know!

Binary - New Restaurant at Palais Renaissance With One of the Best Breads & Cocktails in Singapore

binary_new_restaurant_singapore

The binary star appears as a single star but is in actual fact 2 stars that are so close to each other that they seem to shine as one. Inspired by the binary Star, Binary showcases Western and Asian dishes side by side and allows them to shine even brighter in complementary fashion. In addition, the restaurant occupies a prominent space at 01-01 of Palais Renaissance, echoing the binary code of 0 and 1. You have to agree that the restaurant can't be anymore aptly named! Opened by the same group that manages big names such as Sushi Kimura, Binary seems enroute to become one of the most popular kids in Orchard. Rocking a full house on a Monday evening, the casual restaurant boasts a straightforward menu of star ingredients presented in both Western and Asian style. So, even though the menu looks lean, you're looking at double the number of dishes available due to 2 cooking styles offered for each key ingredient.

Rempapa - Chef Damian D'Silva's Signature Peranakan Classics & Unique New Heritage Cuisine Now at Park Place Residences PLQ

rempapa_new_heritage_cuisine_singapore

Fans of Chef Damian would have followed his journey from his days of cooking up a storm at Folklore, to his fantastic run at Restaurant Kin, and they surely would have heard through the grapevine about the opening of Rempapa, before any information was even officially released. It's no wonder the renowned rebel chef has garnered such a wide and loyal following — his Peranakan dishes are truly second to none. I admire and have always been impressed by Chef Damian's passion in keeping traditions and his family recipes alive. He tries to stop the loss of more heritage dishes by making sure that Peranakan cuisine is accessible, and has now come up with New Heritage cuisine to introduce a taste of almost-lost Peranakan flavours to the younger generations.

LeVeL33 - Value-For-Money Executive Set Lunch at World's Highest Urban Microbrewery

level33_mbfc_weekday_lunch_set 

Perched on level 33(of course) of MBFC, LeVeL 33 is the world's highest microbrewery. Setting up of this place was a real tough job because the giant tanks required for the brewing of the beer couldn't fit into the elevators. Imagine the amount of work needed to lift numerous tanks up by cranes to the 33rd floor! Talk about dedication! Apart from brewing their own beer, the brewery does pretty solid food, and might possibly be best known for its spectacular view of the Marina bay area, where crowds most often gather for fireworks display come New Year's Eve or National Day. LeVeL33 is also known for their value-for-money Executive Set Lunch which runs from Monday to Friday.

Raffles Courtyard - New Weekend Brunch at the Most Beautiful Brunch Spot in Town

 photo raffles hotel brunch.jpg
The iconic Raffles Hotel Singapore is home to a diverse range of F&B establishments, but loyal fans of The Grand Dame will always be back at Raffles Courtyard, Tiffin Room, Long Bar and The Grand Lobby. Sitting in the middle of the luxurious property is Raffles Courtyard, a tranquil alfresco bar that promises good food, good drinks, and a good time. Open from 3pm, Raffles Courtyard welcomes streams of patrons who pop by for a tipple or two during happy hour which runs daily from 5pm to 8pm. I've actually always wondered why the space isn't open for weekend brunch because it would definitely be so very popular. Alas, Raffles Hotel has decided to show off the beautiful place in its daytime splendor.

The Summerhouse has just turned one, and the past year has been a glorious one indeed. Stepping into its second year, The Summerhouse has introduced attractive transformations, and is offering more enchanting experiences. The Summerhouse Garden Domes, which are dressed in Bohemian, Scandinavian, or Lounge themes, have been really popular since their launch. Numerous marriage proposals have been held in them, and you can imagine how in demand the domes were when Valentine's Day came around. The edible garden has also blossomed spectacularly, and has been an essential source of ingredients for the culinary team which has just refreshed their menu.

Coffee & Laksa Pasta @ Noshery by Nosh (Rochester Park)

 photo Noshery at Nosh Rochester 4.jpg
Nestled within the serene but alluring Rochester Park, Noshery is the latest project by Nosh. The green and brown hues that Noshery is decked out in convey an earthy feel, which is consistent with its surroundings. The space is decorated with wooden furniture, vintage finds and warm lights. There is a constant stream of natural sunlight into the cafe but you will be able to catch some shadows if that's your photography style at certain corners.

(CLOSED) Weekend Brunch @ Salt Tapas & Bar (Raffles City)


 photo salt tapas brunch 7.jpg
It's been a really long time since I've found an impressive brunch spot and I'm beyond ecstatic that Salt Tapas & Bar has rolled out a brunch menu that left me in a severe but happy food coma. Trust me, the extensive menu will have you staring at it for a long time because you simply can't decide what to order! You know a restaurant is legit when you've been there three times, and you're blown away every single time.

While the facade of the restaurant might suggest hefty prices, I'm pleased to be the bearer of good news that brunch here is unbelievably affordable. The Eggs Berentine, a playful merger of eggs benedict and eggs florentine, is a solid outfit of flawlessly poached eggs, ham, spinach and dashi-infused hollandaise atop housemade muffins. And it carries a proud price tag of $14. Did I shock you? Oh, wait till you finish going through this post.

Pasta Fresca Da Salvatore @ Boat Quay


 photo pasta fresca 2.jpg
With a long history of 28 years, three outlets and 336 pasta dishes under their belt, it's no wonder that Pasta Fresca is a household name when it comes to Italian cuisine. As you may already have guessed from the name of the restaurant, Pasta Fresca is widely known for their range of pasta dishes. However, did you know that they do a pretty mean steak and yummy pizzas too?

The Chop House @ I12 Katong

 photo chophouse6.jpg

With a team of experts wholeheartedly committed to serving the tastiest fare at affordable prices, it's no wonder that The Chop House at VivoCity has achieved such astounding success. They have boldly invaded one of the most popular malls in the east to do what they do best. Are you ready for what they have to offer?

Needless to say, the meats here are outstanding. The USDA Prime Grain Fed Ribeye ($38) had a fantastic char, was beautifully pink in the middle and absolutely delish. Three different sauces and a tasty house-made onion jam accompany the juicy and tender cut of beef. A side of fresh watercress provided a refreshing kick to the dish. It is an unusual pairing but definitely one that works.
