The din­ing room is cav­ernous and the buf­fet spread ex­ten­sive at Melt, yet some clever in­te­rior de­sign makes the din­ing room feel more in­ti­mate than it re­ally is—and we mean that in a good way. The ta­bles are well-spaced apart and floor-to-ceil­ing win­dows of­fer a lovely view of the green­ery out­side. At­ten­tive service staff clear plates and of­fer new cut­lery al­most as soon as guests set down their forks and knives, or take a pause from eat­ing. And pause you must, for the smor­gas­board, which in­cludes ev­ery­thing from Euro­pean and Asian de­lights to cold seafood, fresh oys­ters and Sin­ga­porean del­i­ca­cies, is sweep­ing. Save room for the ex­quis­ite sweets, fruit and Nonya kueh on of­fer at the im­pres­sive dessert sta­tion, which the restau­rant dubs its “pas­try theatre”.
