An aromatic plant used as a culinary herb...or a profoundly wise savant or guru...
...or, the newest place at Makati Shangri-La serving craft cocktails and fine European cuisine. Sage Restaurant and Bar brings back refined dining elegance in true Makati Shangri-La style.
Sage Restaurant and Bar is the Makati Shangri-La's newest dining destination, serving classic European and Mediterranean-inspired cuisine. Sage Restaurant and Bar features two levels, with a fine dining restaurant on the top floor and a cool bar on the lobby level. Up or down, lunch or dinner followed by cocktails, all in one place.
After a brief welcome from Makati Shangri-La's General Manager, Alain Borgers, guests were then treated to an extensive array of unique and flavorful tapas to go with the free-flowing cocktails.
A never empty glass of champagne and great company, and you get into the groove in no time. Another round? Absolutely.
Then, Sage Restaurant and Bar's kitchens go into high gear, churning out an impressive assortment of tapas, delicately plated offering a wide range of flavors.
Using only the best and premium ingredients, each little plate brings rich flavors, and a sneak preview of Chef de Cuisine Gilles Galli's approach to fresh, clean Mediterranean flavors.
Comfortingly familiar, yet new and different, like the chicken and mango roll...
and plump prawn with a sweet sauce. And there's more.
Tender roast duck on a rich and moist risotto, a personal favorite.
Creative, playful, fresh. Sage Restaurant and Bar's small plates are impressive, combining full flavors with an aesthetic appeal, and it really does taste as good as it looks.
And the desserts are equally as impressive.
Just leave it to Michelle Gerona, F&B Service Manager at Sage Restaurant & Bar, and her team to create some of their signature cocktails and tapas for an awesome experience at Makati Shangri-La's newest dining destination (for more on Michelle Gerona's cool cocktails, check out my previous post here at http://dude4food.blogspot.com/2013/10/shaken-not-stirred-martini-on-table-at.html). Sage Restaurant and Bar formally opens on February 12, just in time for Valentine's...
