Trattoria Pizza Logic is best-known for their naples style cuisine that uses fresh ingredients, such as flour imported from Caputo in Naples.
Pizzaiolo Junichi Shoji, who is the winner of the prestigious Napoli Pizza World Championship 2012, an annual global contest to determine the world’s best pizza makers, is responsible for designing the pizza recipes. This makes Trattoria Pizza Logic the only restaurant in Singapore to have a World Championship Winning Pizzaiolo supervising its kitchen.
Co-helming the kitchen is Grand Chef Atsushi Terashima, who acts as the creative force behind the restaurant’s menu.

This experience has allowed him to pick up authentic Italian cooking techniques and create new dishes to add to Trattoria Pizza Logic’s mouth-watering menu.
MAI by Dashi Master Marusaya is a premium dashi concept restaurant by Japanese katsuobushi wholesaler, Marusaya. The 38-seater restaurant is dedicated to serving authentic Japanese dishes using superior ingredients directly imported from Japan, together with all-natural dashi made from special aged bonito and quality konbu. The Marusaya group also runs two other Japanese dining concepts in Singapore: Dashi Master Marusaya and Ten Sushi and Bar, since 2014.
Founded in 1962, Marusaya is dedicated to supplying katsuobushi for commercial use, with over 9,000 customers from food establishments including soba, udon, ramen and Japanese kappo restaurants. The dashi used at MAI is of a different calibre, as the company takes pride in its Satsuma 2-year-old hongare-honbushi, made from skipjack tuna which is dried and fermented over two years. This is unlike other katsuobushi, which is fermented only over a year. The extended period of fermentation draws out almost all moisture and concentrates the flavour of the katsuobushi, making it especially strong in umami. The aged bonito is then cooked with specially imported Rishiri kelp – one of the best categories of kelp that’s harvested around Hokkaido – for over an hour, to produce a broth that reveals sophisticated flavours, which is thoughtfully infused into every dish. It is worthy to note that besides dashi, no MSG or any other chemical seasoning is used. One can be assured of a delicious, healthy and authentic Japanese dining experience at MAI.

With access to over 40 herbs flown directly from the stunning French Alps, The Lounge Bar is the Lion City’s first drinking establishment offering such a dedicated selection and bringing a little slice of the alps to Asia.
“It is a great privilege to showcase the work of artisans and small batch producers as their motives are different. There are some wonderful examples of generational heritage among the selection at The Lounge Bar. This makes for a great experience for our guests, especially when we share their story, their inspiration – it always adds a little extra magic to each cocktail! – Anant Tyagi, Owner The Lounge Bar
In a league of its own, The Lounge Bar cocktail program of herb-inspired concoctions is a delicious, if somewhat potent, ode to Chef Gillon’s hand-selected herbs.
Here's a couple of the bar's cocktail creations:
Sariette – Imagine an aromatic blast of rosemary, thyme the moment you pick up this Islay led cocktail. A generous dram of Smokehead whirled around with Montenegro, Branca Mentha, Campari, Carpano Antica formula and Angostura Bitters is sublime.
Hyssop – if you’re craving a slightly bitter pour, look no further. The carefully calculated formula of this minty herb with high tannins with infused rum, St Germaine liqueor, Peychaud Bitters, pillow soft egg-white, a dash of lime juice and simple syrup – simply addictive.
Agastache – this thoughtful creation is a complex mix of this licorice, almost star anise flavoured herb, with beautifully distilled pisco. Add the slightly smokey Pierde Almas Mezcal, Aperol, whisked egg white, lemon juice, grapefruit bitters, sage syrup and you’ll reach new highs!
Visit the bar for more unique cocktails to try. In addition to the bar’s signature selection, the classics have been embraced and elevated to greater heights with the help of craft spirits.

After nearly eight years at Kampong Bugis Road, Kilo Kitchen has moved out of its original home for a new chapter at 97 Duxton Road. This move once again reunites Kilo Kitchen with sister property Kilo Lounge, just steps away at 21 Tanjong Pagar Road. With both venues a short stroll apart, Kilo can once again offer guests the ideal night out—great modern comfort food, fresh cocktails and a vibrant after hours experience—set against the backdrop of Chinatown’s bustling Tanjong Pagar district.
Kilo Kitchen’s menu takes inspiration from different cuisines around the world and draws on the heritage of co-founders Joshua Adjodha, Javier Perez and Sharon Lee, as well as returning executive chef Manel Valero. Since departing Kilo in May 2016, Manel went on a culinary sabbatical across Europe and staged at some of the region’s top Michelin-starred restaurants including Relæ, Maaemo and Geranium. He returns to helm the new Kilo Kitchen, where he brings with him a renewed perspective on Kilo’s brand of modern comfort food. Big, bold flavours can be found on nearly every plate, with dishes favouring the tastes and cooking techniques of Latin America and Asia.
A highlight of the new Kilo Kitchen is its open-format natural flame kitchen with a wood-fired grill – a style of cooking that chef Manel has honed throughout his culinary career. The kitchen is the centre of the action, and allows guests to observe the kitchen team at work. The majority of cooked dishes are prepared on the wood-fired grill, and this technique also adds depth of flavour and a touch of char to Kilo’s classics. Three types of wood are used to achieve the optimal fire – apple, cherry and jarrah. Apple and cherry woods impart a delicious aroma and burn slowly, while bush jarrah is an old Western Australian favourite hard wood for barbecues and wood-fired ovens that burns clean to leave very little ash behind.
Adjacent to the open kitchen is an impressive Turkish marble and brass bar that extends across the width of the space. Here, a high energy bar team led by general manager Luca Colonna delivers a well-rounded beverage programme of signature cocktails, artisanal sakes, craft spirits, and over 30 wines sourced from South Africa to Argentina and beyond – perfect for any time of the evening.
The 3,000 sq ft eating and drinking destination sits on a prime spot on the intersection of Duxton Hill and Duxton Road – the latest addition to the burgeoning Duxton community of cultural, creative, lifestyle and dining offerings. Responsible for the design of the new Kilo Kitchen is Singapore and Jakarta-based Studio Dinding, whose designers have worked on projects for noted firms Jaya and Distillery.

For the founders of Restaurant JAG, Singapore’s newest fine dining French restaurant, Michelin Star Chef Jeremy Gillon and Managing Director Anant Tyagi, have launched their first official partnership together with the goal of providing an experience for guests that will be re-defined after every visit.
As Chef Jeremy puts it, “I like sharing, exchanging, transmitting moments of emotion with my clients and my teams, discovering new flavors and new products. I have a greedy and curious nature, and I like the idea of discovering or rediscovering flavours, or being reminded of memories from childhood.”
The artisanal approach is evident in every detail of the new restaurant: From the custom wood and stonework created by craftsmen from around the world, the white gloved Gueridons in the dining room, the custom glasswork from Kimura, Japan, to the selection of indigenous herbs from the mountainsides in Savoie, France, it is the attention to details in all the little things that communicate what Restaurant JAG is all about.
Located at 76 Duxton Road, Restaurant JAG will offer a fine dining experience spread across two floors. Level 1, with seats for 25 and views of the open kitchen, is tailored for romance or intimate gatherings, while the lounge and bar on level 2 is outfitted with Chesterfields and intimate bar seating, perfect for closing deals at the end of a long day.
Guests of the restaurant can expect a bevy of exclusive offerings, including:
â—Ź Exclusive 5-course select or 10-course experiential dinner selections.
â—Ź Exclusive cocktails and teas showcasing some of the 44 indigenous herbs from the Savoie Mountains in France, as well as an exclusive wine list.
â—Ź Each dining table will receive a gift at the end of their meal, as a gesture of appreciation, such as a signature Olive Oil bottle made exclusively for JAG or a box of unique tisane from the mountains of Savoie which is also unique to JAG.
â—Ź Executive 3 course lunch sets for the discerning.

The good people of Selfish Gene Café (SGC) are proud to announce the opening of Selfish Gene Patisserie (SGP). Located on level 2 above the café at 40 Craig Road, SGP is a patisserie with a difference – they serve plated desserts focusing on familiar flavours with modern presentation.
During the conceptualisation of SGP, their challenge was to present themselves in a new improved concept, but yet to retain their core culinary philosophy of homemade, quality food that appeals not only to the palate but also to a sense of familiarity. Finally, they decided to develop their core strength in making things from scratch and move their existing pastry preparation upstairs. In doing so, everything seemed to fall into place and SGP was born. SGP will operate independently from SGC as the concept and style of service differs. SGP will offer table service and present more interaction between the patisserie and customer.
After several months of testing and recipe development, SGP is proud to present seven different plated desserts. The desserts menu is ordered in increasing intensity of flavour starting with the light & fruity and leading to the more intense & robust ones. Some of the mentionable desserts include a Japanese inspired Soya which harmonises soya ingredients with tofu cheesecake, red beans, homemade mochi, red miso caramel and green tea ice-iream. There is also the Ginger featuring warm candied ginger pudding topped with a luscious sticky toffee and accompanied caramel ice-cream. All cakes and ice-creams/sorbets are made in-house.
SGP will serve as an event space for private/corporate events, meetings and product launches. In addition, they hope to be able to do pop-up dinners with guest chefs in the near future. And so, selfish Gene continues to evolve.
