Best of Both Worlds

Ginett restaurant and wine bar offers diners the finest things in life with a casual approach.

Entering Ginett and seeing the modern-industrial look, patrons can expect a trendy and casual hangout in a strategic area of the city – not far from Singapore’s famed Orchard Road, Bugis and City Hall entertainment and business districts. While the venue portrays an unassuming atmosphere, the bistro-style restaurant and wine bar only serves the finest things in life. Yes, imagine an array of freshly shucked Fine de Claire oysters and imported charcuterie and cheese with the finest selection of wine for dinner. In terms of flavours, Ginett has the lavish fineness, but without the ostentation when it comes to ambience.

The group general manager and Chef de Cuisine Sylvain Royer envisions Ginett as a destination to savour great fare with a laid-back approach. “Growing up in Reims, France, I learned from an early age the pleasures of a good meal and how it is essential to living well. At Ginett, we hope to create a memorable experience for everyone, serving classic dishes using the best ingredients and wines from some of the finest chateaux in France,” said Sylvain. “We want Ginett to be a place where you can break from the hectic demands of daily life, and enjoy delicious food and wine without breaking the bank.”

Ginett also aims for a little bit of everything for everyone by opening all day. A Ginett day starts with a morning buffet spread and takeaway breakfast options. The à la carte menu serves a light and fresh selection. For the busy bees, the restaurant also offers a quick fix of a two-course lunch set comprising selected salads, pastas or sandwiches.

Discerning diners can find the greatest of Sylvain’s finesse on Ginett’s dinner menu. The pâté en croûte – homemade puff pastry filled with black pork and foie gras terrine – is a hearty fix to tease the appetite. In between meals guests can entertain their palates with a plate of jamon iberico and a rotating menu of appellation d’origine contrôlée cheese. Continue by selecting one of the charcoal-grilled signature dishes that are cooked on a bed of apple wood charcoal, such as the Australian Angus beef, Kurobuta pork and organic lamb chops.

Completing the experience, Ginett offers the finest wines at happy hour prices all day, with more than 15 varieties of wine, including the city’s most affordable list of 70 French wines like the Castel Roubine 2015 Rosé and the Château Tour Bicheau 2013 Merlot.
