Restaurants

At the award-winning Avenues, enjoy the modern, but creative American cuisine featuring fresh seasonal ingredients. You also explore the Exhibition kitchen along with the vistas of the historic Water Tower. I would recommend going for the eight-course dinners and vegetarian items.

At the cozy Shanghai Terrace featuring the antique décor of the clubs, savor the Cantonese and Shanghainese fare during the season (Monday – Saturday). The Lobby is famous for its breakfast as well as lunch from Monday to Saturday along with the daily afternoon, fashion shows on some Fridays, chocolate buffet Friday, and Saturday evening entertainment. Brunch is offered on Sundays.

At the Pierrot Gourmet that is a modern European-style café, you can have delicious salads, sandwiches, pastries, and seasonal alfresco dining daily from morning until evening.
