There’s a new fine dining restaurant in BGC, and it sure can transport your palate to Europe.
Presenting classic European cuisine and defining a relaxed fine dining setting in a whole new level is Pinot. This new culinary gem at the heart of Bonifacio Global City brings a refreshed concept of relaxed fine dining. Diners get the upscale yet laid-back ambiance whilst enjoying the gourmet set menu.
Its exquisite dishes are well-curated and crafted by Chef Markus Gfeller. It truly sets this fine dining restaurant in BGC apart from others. While nestled in decors of brass and botanicals, guests can enjoy their Pinot moments with a prix fixe menu. It has options for 2-course, 3-course, and 4-course meals.
This menu includes popular starters such as lobster and crabmeat salad, duck liver & truffle pate, lobster sago, or the seared foie gras. Some of the exquisite mains include Wine-Braised Beef Cheeks, Rack of Bobby Veal and Kurobuta pork belly.
And to impeccably give everyone a sweet ending, dessert selections include Pineapple Colada, White Chocolate Flan, Praline Chocolate, Raspberry Semi Freddo, and Tart au Chocolate.
Premium Dining Experience
Now, if you’re really for looking more upscale than what we’ve just described, fret not. Pinot has something grander that’s perfect for you. Those who want to have a premium dining experience can indulge in a selection of grand pieces to be served, carved, and presented beautifully for guests to see, taste, and experience.
Among the carving selections are Whole Roasted Maple Leaf Duck served two ways, Breast with Blackberry Coulis, and Ragu A l’Orange with Coconut Adlai. Lamb lovers will appreciate a whole Rack of Lamb that is herb-crusted with Ratatouille & Garlic Potato Puree. There is also a US Ribeye on the bone with Bearnaise & Red Wine Sauce, Mushrooms and Cream Sp inach and French fries.
According to Chef Markus Gfeller, “the Pinot menu is perfect for three types of diners: the busy business diner who will appreciate the prix fixe with its straightforward choices; the adventurous diner who wants to explore new experiences will enjoy the gustatory journey of the 7-course chefs tasting menu; and the conservative diner who values older traditions will delight in the classic whole roasted masterpieces that are for sharing.”
Together with Chef Gfeller at the Pinot is a team of young chefs including chef de cuisine Ciara Fabie Teotico, who returned from a two-year Michelin restaurant stint in Spain. “We offer modern European fare from best quality ingredients grown organically and sustainably from local farms or sourced abroad. It is our aim to create non-intimidating, unpretentious and approachable dining experiences for friends and families,” he shares.
Finally, as Pinot believes that wine is the perfect supplement to a great meal, they also boast of a well-balanced list that brings together good value vintages and rare wine treasures. There is no corkage fee as well for guests who want to bring in their own wines so long as you order a full meal. It starts at P1500 for 2-course, P1900 for 3-course, and P2300 for a 4-course prix fixe.
