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.
