Atipico

Robb Report Singapore - - Savour - By SER APHINA WOON

Sin­ga­pore’s food scene is se­ri­ously tuck­ing into pri­vate din­ing, a phe­nom­e­non of­fer­ing guests nov­elty, ex­clu­siv­ity and cus­tomi­sa­tion that most tra­di­tional restau­rants can’t.

Whichever way you cut it, this culi­nary con­cept is gain­ing a religious fol­low­ing, and in turn, cre­at­ing a cadre of pri­vate chefs who are ex­er­cis­ing more creative mus­cle un­der this new­fan­gled ethos.

We have short­listed four of the finest food pur­vey­ors in Sin­ga­pore who may not yet be Miche­lin-ranked, but pos­sess a gen­er­ous serv­ing of star qual­ity.

A for­mer struc­tural en­gi­neer and ar­chi­tect, it’s no sur­prise that Atipico’s founder and chef, Mat­teo Per­toldi, cre­ates vis­ually stun­ning con­coc­tions on a plate. His eye for de­sign, cou­pled with his Ital­ian and French roots, lend Atipico (mean­ing ‘atyp­i­cal’ in Ital­ian) its man­i­cured, Euro­pean-cen­tric fare. Hav­ing started as a recre­ational sup­per club to meet gour­mands, Per­toldi soon amassed a fol­low­ing large enough to spin his culi­nary dream into re­al­ity. Now, the busi­ness ser­vices an ar­ray of pri­vate and cor­po­rate clients, in­clud­ing Pan­erai and the Swedish am­bas­sador to Sin­ga­pore. www.atipico.sg
