Whether that taste for power requires a nouvelle French feast or a classic Chinese banquet, Singapore has a slew of impressive lunch options that are perfect for discussing business. Here are our top five picks.
A reservation at this immensely popular restaurant headed by chef Julien Royer is notoriously difficult to snag. So the fact that you’ve procured one is impressive all on its own. Once inside the light-filled dining room, straight-backed service staff fawn over guests with just the right amount of professional attention. The four to six-course lunch menus (S$98 to S$148) feature seasonal highlights and Royer’s signature dishes including Hokkaido uni with Mozambique langoustine tartare and oscietra caviar, and hand-dived Scottish scallops with calamansi gel, Kyoho grapes and yozukosho pepper granite. If nothing else, lunch at Odette is a great way for guests to experience its full hospitality experience in a limited time – so your guests can say that they’ve been to Odette and done that.

The beautifully grand conservation building it sits in isn’t the most impressive feature of this lifestyle complex. In the afternoons, the restaurant – spread over the entire second floor – is a fine space for the modern towkay to conduct business over exquisite Chinese fare. As lunch sets are as affordable as S$98 for four people (maximum two sets per party) or S$48 per person (minimum two people), the more people the merrier.
