The Black Swan

While many establishments trying to pull off the vintage look, none have succeeded quite like The Black Swan's seductive decor that looks like it came straight out of the 1920s.

On Christmas Eve, they're serving specials like the Warm Jellied Tomato Consomme, Scallop Ceviche with compressed cucumber, beet, and truffle, and the Chargrilled Wagyu Rump Cap with roasted potatoes and red wine glaze.

Price: $108++ per person for 4 courses (4 time slots from 6pm to 8.45pm) and at $128++ per person for 5 courses (5 time slots from 8.15pm to closing).
