How would you like to have dinner and experience heirloom Filipino cuisines and art at the same time?
At Andres Restaurant, located in the heart of the business district of Makati City, diners can enjoy good food while being afforded the chance to go down memory lane with its revolutionary Filipino cuisine.
Through the menu, a part of Philippine history is remembered, especially as the recipes are linked to the historic figures and places of the Philippine Revolution, such as Magdalo, Gregoria, Catalina, Procopio, Biak-na-Bato, Tejeros, Pugad Lawin, Tondo, Katipunan.
Starter menu is called Bagong Aklas, while the main course is Plato de Principal de Katipuneros.
The restaurant offers a buffet lunch with a wide array of Filipino food. This is also an interesting way of introducing the distinct Philippine culture to foreigners; treat balikbayan Filipinos to a homecoming; or just instill pride and nationalism among young people.
The restaurant offers a quiet ambience for a romantic dinner for two; a bright atmosphere for a fun-filled dinner with friends especially after office hours; or a relaxing air for a round of drinks after a busy work day. The place is also good for Sunday lunch with the family.
There are private rooms for company meetings or family gatherings.
On special occasions, there is an acoustic band or live performance.
In keeping up with its goal of improving its services, the Andres Restaurant management is launching its new art program this month.
Artworks such as paintings and sculptures by contemporary Filipino visual artists will be exhibited in selected spaces of the restaurant.
The owners believe a restaurant can be an alternative venue for information on history and a venue for art appreciation.
The restaurant is inviting artists for proposals to exhibit their paintings.
