Adrift is Californian chef David Myers’ first venture into Singapore and here, the Gypsy Chef (as he is nicknamed for the multicultural ingredients he uses in his good) tantalises guests with creative dishes such as beef tatare with chilli, and foie gras banh mi.

For the 4,000sqf restaurant, interior architecture firm Wilson Associates created an eclectic concept. It’s enclosed in a facade made up of criss-crossing wood and copper panels, and the sense of mystery is carried through to the dimly lit cocktail bar by the main entrance, a nod to Prohibition-era bars. Guests can feel at home at the living room-like area next to the bar, which is furnished with Mid-Century Modern sideboards and vintage-inspired seating.

Things brighten up beyond the bar, where the main dining area is located. The floor-to-ceiling windows allow natural light to flood in, while a row of playful swing benches accentuates the lush vertical garden. When the sun sets, the entire space transforms into a cosy setting thanks to the warm wooden tones accented with industrial elements.

Many of David’s culinary creations contain an element of surprise, and the designers at Wilson Associates expressed this with a private dining room that has a camouflaged entrance. This richly decorated space feels like the personal library of a well-heeled globetrotter, accessorised with a large oriental carpet, travel photographs in vintage-style frames, and “instant” bookshelves courtesy of some clever wallpaper – a lovely private space to impress your guests!
