ON THE IMPORTANCE OF ELEGANCE
Fine Dining need not be reserved only for the most special occasions any longer. Given the plethora of excellent choices now available to us in this Golden Age of restaurants, to do so would be to sacrifice an opportunity to indulge one’s self every now and then. It would be a disservice to yourself, and to the fine folks behind the finest establishments in our city, if you only visited them once every year.
Fine Dining, however, deserves to be treated like a special occasion. Recall, if you will, the sepia-toned photographs from your grandparents’ albums. Notice how graceful your Lola looked in her designer couture, or how sophisticated your Lolo looked in his crisp bespoke barong. They looked good, and certainly felt even better, outside and in. Dress to impress when you dine at the restaurants we’re featuring in this issue. Food as fine as Li Li’s, Mirèio’s, and Old Manila’s deserve nothing less.
So ditch the everyday t-shirts, the distressed jeans, and the running shoes. Go ahead, suit up or put on those high heels; visualize how confidently sexy they’ll make you feel. Rediscover the undeniable pleasures of formality and finesse. Make it a night to remember for you and your significant other. Make it unforgettable in every way.
