Fresh be­gin­nings – and a whole lot of feast­ing to do.

Af­ter a con­sult­ing stint at La Ven­tana that ended last year, chef Car­les Gaig has opened Restau­rant Gaig in Telok Ayer. While shar­ing the same name as his one-Miche­lin-star fine-din­ing es­tab­lish­ment in Barcelona, the restau­rant takes on a more ca­sual vibe with its bright interiors and wood fur­nish­ings. The Cata­lan cui­sine served here bears some sim­i­lar­i­ties: the sig­na­ture can­nel­loni with truf­fle cream sauce uses the same 150-year-old recipe as that served in Barcelona. Ta­pas, pael­las and stews make the bulk of the menu and are great for shar­ing. With Gaig’s daugh­ter, Nuria Gib­ert, sta­tioned there as man­ager, din­ers can be as­sured of a warm, ami­able ex­pe­ri­ence with in­formed Span­ish wine pair­ings. 16Stan­leyStreet.
