Adding to the existing fray of bistros, fine-dining restaurants and microbreweries at Dempsey Hil is new dining concept 22 Dempsey. The restaurant’s edge in this F&B saturated neighbourhood is that it’s more than just a restaurant — it’s a dining destination that aims to cater to varied groups of diners, all in one 10,000 square metre gourmet villa.
“22 Dempsey is certainly the most exciting project we have worked on so far,” says Tania Lim, F&B director of Starworth Pte Ltd. “Our dining concepts offer an unmatched variety of options, with our specialty restaurants catering to varied groups of diners."
We paid a visit to the dining destination (which is housed in a charming colonial bungalow flanked by lush greenery) and see what’s there to look forward to.
