Happy Bunny New Year to everyone!
How has your new year been so far? Hope it’s been great meeting up with relatives (you see once a year?) and friends, collecting red packets, and chowing down all the festive eats!
Speaking of eating, I’m happy to report that Restaurant Week 2011 is back! And it’s bigger and (hopefully) even better this time round~

For those who need a memory jolt, Restaurant Week is a popular international event for food lovers to enjoy meals at established local restaurants at an irresistible fixed price of S$35++ for a three-course dinner and S$25++ for a three-course lunch from 21 to 27 March 2011. Restaurants awarded DiningCity Star will charge a supplement of S$15++ for lunch and S$20++ for dinner.
This year, 76 restaurants are coming onboard, including 38 new participants such as Salt Grill & Sky Bar (I’m interested in Salt!), KU DÉ TA, Stellar@1-Altitude, Boathouse, Le Saint Julien, La Villa, Table 66, Kinki, Matsu, Wild Rocket, One Rochester, 1 Twenty Six, Clifford (Fullerton Bay Hotel), and My Little Spanish Place.
Restaurants taking part again in the upcoming March 2011 edition include Absinthe, Garibaldi, Bedrock Bar & Grill, The Cliff, Forlino, Il Lido, Novus, Oso, Brasserie Wolf, OTTO (my personal favourite!), Picotin, Krish, Private Affairs, Tatsuya, The Song of India and Takumi Tokyo.

For singles out there, Restaurant Week will also play host to ‘Eat, Drink, Love’ – in collaboration with Lunch Actually. This event is a great opportunity for eligible food lovers to make new friends in a relaxed environment and at the same time enjoy a quality dining experience. ‘Eat, Drink, Love’ will be held on 23 March 2011 and 24 March 2011, and features a 3-course dinner at Brasserie Wolf and Chef D’Table, where diners will swap seats and get to meet a different person at each course. The fee for this event is S$65 per person (S$60 each for a maximum of 2). The first 20 applicants stand a chance to win invitations to the exclusive Opening Event at the Tower Club on the 22 February from 4pm to 6pm. Interested parties, please visit www.lunchactually.com/eatdrinklove for more details.
*That sounds fun! Should I take part? LOL*
To add more excitement to the whole event, DiningCity.com is offering a pair of air tickets to Amsterdam worth S$3,200 (courtesy of KLM Royal Dutch Airlines) and a meal for two at a top restaurant during Restaurant Week in Amsterdam in June 2011!
And that’s not all.
Diners also stand a chance to win a very special exclusive dining experience brought to you by BMW and The Cliff Restaurant at The Sentosa Resort & Spa. The winner will be chauffeured in a luxurious BMW 7 Series to enjoy a tantalising 3-course Restaurant Week set dinner for two and a bottle of champagne on 24 March 2011 evening.
Here’s the most important part: bookings are open to the public on 23 February 2011 on www.restaurantweek.sg. Note that down and let’s start counting down to a whole month of feasting! 🙂
P.S. AMEX Centurion members and all other cardholders can enjoy priority booking from 14 to 15 and 16 to 20 February 2011 respectively. You lucky people, I’m envious!
