If you can’t get enough of croissants (and there’s no real reason not to love them), then head over to Antoinette and pick up a few new additions, flavours and familiar favourites. The new Croissant à la Crème is draped in a fluffy coat of macaron that crisp and airy with a filling of smooth, light Chantilly, while a range of La Croissanterie in new flavours and palm-sized bites make for the perfect breakfast and teatime snack.
A selection of flavours, from matcha and cheese, to the savoury Chilli Crab and Salted Yolk Lava, is bound to satisfy every craving. Priced at S2.50 to S$4.30 each. Available at Antoinette outlets.

Renowned for its scrumptious meat buffet, The Carvery at Park Hotel Alexandra has launched a new Big Plates Lunch for busy executives looking to indulge in premium roasts during the lunch break.
Choose from a selection of tender Australian Grain-fed Beef that is dry-aged in-house for a more intense taste or a Boneless New Zealand Leg of Lamb that is lightly seasoned with fresh rosemary at the carving station, or tuck into a Fish or Stew of the day (S$19.80++ per plate). Balance the hearty meal with a nutritious side of Bulgur wheat, Quinoa, Brown rice or Risoni pasta, and two vegetable dishes that range from Apple Slaw and Braised turnips, to Honeyed beets & carrots and Pickled mushrooms.

Set off on an Italian gastronomic adventure with Dolce Vita’s new menu, presented by Ched de Cuisine Marco Manocchio. The thoughtfully crafted menu brings to diners time-honoured traditions such as the 25-layer lasagne, handmade with Neapolitan ragout, pasta and smoked scamorza fondue.
The Spaghetti Carbonara with cured Italian pancetta and rich, aromatic pecorino sabayon is another favourite, while the Tagliata di Manzo, a dish of grilled US prime beef bone-in ribeye, served tableside with sides of homemade mashed potatoes, capperata and sautéed vegetables, is a scrumptious treat. No Italian meal is complete without a serving of the iconic tiramisu, which chef recreates with espresso gelato and mascarpone mousse. Even the Vanilla Panna Cotta with pistachio crumble, berries and smoked milk ice cream, is a lovely way to wrap up a hearty Italian meal. A two-course set lunch menu starts at S$36 per person, while the four-course sits at S$52.
