2016 has been quite the year for most of us and I’m sure I’m not alone in welcoming December with open arms. A brand new year beckons and what better way to celebrate than going all out this festive season. Two words: Treat. Yourself.
With a slew of Michelin-starred and Celebrity Chef restaurants, I can’t think of a better place to shell out for a dining experience to remember than at Resorts World Sentosa.
Here are 4 Michelin-starred restaurants at Resorts World Sentosa featuring special festive menus this year:
Imagine celebrating at the only three Michelin-starred restaurant in Singapore – now that would be a December to remember. The famous Joël Robuchon Restaurant needs no introduction, guaranteed to wow you and your loved ones with French haute cuisine.
Dress to impress and indulge in signature dishes like the Wild Salmon Tartare with Imperial Caviar and Saffron Crisps or the delectable Beef Châteaubriand and Foie Gras. Go on, you deserve it.
8-course Christmas Eve and Christmas Day menu is available at $488++ per person.
9-course New Year’s Eve menu is available at $588++ per person.
For a more interactive dining experience, reserve a table at L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon. Simple cuisine is elevated in a vibrant atmosphere, and guests get to be part of the action with only a counter separating the kitchen and main dining area.
You can look forward to culinary creations like the Roasted Scottish Lobster in red wine sauce and stewed kale and the Breast Of Pigeon and Foie Gras steamed in savoy cabbage.
8-course dinner is available at $388++ per person (23 – 26 Dec and 30 Dec 2016 – 2 Jan 2017).
Modern Australian dining is hard to come by in Singapore, and even harder yet, finding a restaurant that does so impeccably. Osia Steak and Seafood Grill is the place to be for creative menus crafted by Celebrity Chef Scott Webster and Chef de Cuisine Douglas Tay.
Celebrate Christmas or ring in the New Year with unforgettable dishes that highlight fresh and seasonal ingredients like the Hiramasa Kingfish with cauliflower cream, salicornia and black truffle dressing and the Foie Gras with pineapple textures and coriander.
4-course dinner is available on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day at $128++ per person.
We are after all celebrating in Singapore and what better way to do so than with something more local. Forest 森 is known for contemporary Chinese fine-dining and this festive season, partake in creations by local Celebrity Chef Sam Leong.
The 8-course lunch menu features two exquisite main courses that are sure to delight your tastebuds: the Charcoal grilled Wagyu Beef with pan-seared foie gras in black pepper sauce and the Deep Fried New Zealand Cod Fillet in Thai style sauce.

I did say you’d be spoilt for choice and Resorts World Sentosa is home to nine Celebrity Chef restaurants that are pulling out all the stops for the festivities. Treat yourself to a night of culinary luxury with Christmas and New Year menus curated by some of the top names in the culinary world.
Make a reservation at CURATE for set dinners created by four Michelin chefs or perhaps have an Italian dining experience like no other with Fratelli‘s Christmas and New Year offerings. I have yet to meet someone who can say no to Japanese cuisine and Syun will be right up your street, with gourmet specials conceptualized by Celebrity Chef Hal Yamashita.
If you’ve never heard of Spa Cuisine, you need to. Tangerine has come up with an 8-course tasting menu that perfectly balances nutrition and flavours, so you can indulge this festive season without the guilt.
There’s just something about this festive season that lends to a little bit more magic in the air, and dining at Ocean Restaurant by Cat Cora takes celebrating to the next level.

Reserving a table at Feng Shui Inn for you and your loved ones would mean a celebration of the most luxurious ingredients of the West, used in Cantonese style cuisine. The festive 6-course special menu includes tantalising Grilled Kurobuta Pork Cubes with barbecue sauce (pictured) and is available for lunch and dinner (24 – 26 Dec 2016 and 31 Dec 2016 – 2 Jan 2017) at $98++ per person, with a minimum of two diners.

The variety of mains and plated dishes means there’s something for everyone and you’ll be spoilt for choice when you see the number of specialty sauces and condiments available. Truly go all out in celebration and order the additional Whole Boston Lobster ($38++, approx. 600g) to enjoy with your loved ones.
