A megastar since the debut of his show The Naked Chef, Jamie Oliver seems to succeed in just about everything. Now, the British food personality and marketing mogul has opened his first venue in Southeast Asia, joining the likes of Mario Batali, Cat Cora and Wolfgang Puck in the Lion City. Though Singapore already has its fair share of celeb chefs, Oliver hopes his trattoria will stand out with its unfussy, family-friendly style and relatively affordable prices. Like most of his empire, the emphasis here is on rustic cuisine often meant for sharing. Guests can dine on risotto with chunks of Brixham Bay crab or minced black truffe, or on the massive wooden planks of antipasti, sporting everything from San Daniele prosciutto to beetroot-cured salmon. There's a good selection of Italian wines for the parents, and a kids’ menu for the smaller set, making this spot an easy crowd-pleaser.
