New restaurants open in Singapore

Two new restaurants are joining Singapore's dining scene. Cocktail bar Native is known for its sustainable use of ingredients, intelligent fermentation and flavour extraction techniques for its drinks has opened a full-service restaurant with a casual drinks programme. These new offerings are on top of the cocktail bar, which opened in 2016, and a fermentation lab.
Chef MJ Teoh, trained in top restaurants such as Pollen, Nouri and Appetite, heads the new restaurant. She tells Tasty Asia that she wants to bring the food chefs love to eat to a greater audience in a friendly, unimposing environment. For example, much like how a family would share a meal. Teoh also said the synergy between the bar and restaurant would solidify the direction that Native wants to go. The plan is an experiential culinary concept that pays homage to heritage and Southeast Asian roots.
Meanwhile, Capella Singapore will unveil Fiamma this June. The new restaurant will offer authentic, traditional family cuisine created by acclaimed Michelin-starred chef Mauro Colagreco. Drawing inspiration from his Italian heritage, the new restaurant will embody the chef's burning passion for cooking. He will focus on the Pescato Del Giorno, or Fresh Catch of the Day, which Colagreco elects to present with influences from the region of Liguria, which is known for its seafood.
The hotel has refurbished a former in-house restaurant for the new dining establishment. The centrally positioned main dining room features a large, bronze-cast chandelier and a view into the glassed-off kitchen. It features a semi-private area "theatrically anchored" by a wood fire pizza oven and the enclave of wine offerings.
