A grand reinvention 

At the cornerstone of any great restaurant is the food. And for guests visiting the 31st floor of  Fraser Place in Salcedo Village, Makati City, there’s definitely a mouthful of flavors to look forward to, as nothing less than gourmet is cooking up at the “new.” 2013_sept19_life10Cravings Fraser Place turns a new leaf, as it re-emerges from being an in-house facility for hotel guests to full-service restaurant, catering broader palates with expanded lunch choices that are, “very cosmopolitan and full of tantalizing global favorites.” Offering guests a satisfying mix of authentic continental cuisines that are “reinterpreted” with Filipino twists, the lunch set includes two selections of dishes and a pastry choice of the day. Seeking to switch the space to a more dinner-focused operation and as an endearing choice spot for city urbanites, the restaurant has also recently undergone a tasteful interior makeover.  Sans the ornate fixtures that are a complete departure from most casual and fine dining joints in Makati, the refreshing change in Cravings Fraser Place is truly immaculate to behold. Starting with a cleaner floorspace, the outlet’s main area made a great option to stick with simpler, minimalist details. Contrasting battle of textures are also evident yet tamed to a perfect minimal, creating a balance between the furniture’s rustic wooden and metallic elements. The stylish hanging lamps and liquor holders, meanwhile, seamlessly provided a charming “country-meets-contemporary” vibe. Cravings Fraser Place Manila is located at the 31st Floor, Forbes Tower, Valero Street in Salcedo Village, Makati City.
