When it opens its doors this November, visitors to the National Gallery Singapore can be sure of one thing – you might arrive hungry for art but you will never leave hungry. Visitors will have not one, not two, not even three, but six dining establishments to choose from.
Here’s what’s in store for hungry art lovers. Aura Restaurant and Sky Lounge owned by Beppe De Vito will serve classic Italian. National Kitchen by Violet Oon will dish out local favourites. Odette, is a French restaurant helmed by chef-owner Julien Royer and serving, what else, French food. Saha and The Altimate, will offer Indian cuisine by Abhijit Saha while Yàn and Smoke & Mirrors will serve up Chinese and especially Cantonese favourites. There will also be a gallery-partnered cafeteria integrated into their retail store. For added measure, food kiosks offering simple and convenient meals are also on the cards. In total, some 2,500 square metres of the gallery, across various levels of the former Supreme Court and City Hall wings, will be dedicated to restaurants.
