Residential neighborhood Greenwood is a fast changing dining destination. We did a round up the area’s best restaurants last year, but now there are a host of new eating outlets: French restaurants Shelter in the Woods and L’Assiette, as well as Peranakan eatery The Patio and Italian establishment 8 at Green.

Shelter in the Woods is tavern-like space with heavy oak and cast iron furniture. It serves rustic recipes such as country style pork and roasted pistachio terrine ($12) and  cassoulet of duck confit, lamb leg, pork belly and garlic sausage ($25), which diners can wash down with a range of house-macerated rums ($7.50) like passion fruit-chilli and lychee-rose.

L’Assiette is run by the same folks as Robertson Quay eating place Les Bouchons Rive Gauche and Ann Siang Hill restaurant Le Carillon De L’Angelus. They serve classics like steak tartare ($32) and pike fish quenelles ($28). There’s also an affordable set lunch available at $38 for three courses including starters like chicken pate and mains such as roasted lamb leg, with the dessert of the day.

Peranakan eating house The Patio is run by husband-and-wife team Kelvin Chua and Emily Goh. They serve up traditional recipes such as ngoh hiang (from $5), deep-fried pork rolls, itek tim ($18), duck with salted vegetables and babi ponteh ($15), braised pork belly with mushrooms and potatoes.  

Italian and Western food spot 8 at Green is a simple monochrome space offering crowd-pleasing plates such as crispy pork knuckle ($39.90) and warm chocolate pudding ($12.90).
