If modern Australian cuisine and good beer is more your speed, head to LeVel33 at Marina Bay Financial Centre Tower 1. Billed the world’s highest urban microbrewery, this restaurant-bar celebrates Valentine’s Day with a Sharing Dinner menu ($148 per guest with a glass of bubbly). Just as love consists of all shades of emotion, the menu traverses the length and breadth of taste, from sweet to sour, bitter and spicy. Dishes such as poached sea bass, bitter gourd and wheat bear dashi; and grilled short rib with spicy fermented leek, are some of the highlights. They’ve also got an incredible view of Marina Bay, so it’d be a good backdrop for a lovely date, or even to pop an important question.
