Located on the cobblestone-paved Duxton Hill, this Parisian-inspired steak-frites joint, by millionaire-turned-restaurateur Oliver Bendel, is as close as you can get to the Parisian Relais de Venise experience in Singapore. Like the Paris institution, L’entrecote is heaving with hungry diners and tables in this unembellished restaurant are cramped so tightly together that it’s impossible not to tune-in to your neighbors’ conversations. Nor are you afforded a choice of main course—in this case, two slices of entrecote with salad in vinaigrette and free flow of fries, though of course you can pick how you like your steak done. On the other hand, there are plenty of choices among the classic bistro starters and desserts. Don’t miss the dish of escargots de Bourgogne in an addictive parsley accented garlic butter sauce and the hearty serving of tarte tatin. T+L Tip Given the no reservations policy at L’entrecote, come early.
