Grace Park is one of my favorite restaurants in Metro Manila. It is one of my go-to places for catching up with girlfriends or a date with P over lunch or dinner because they have amazing food, a great wine selection, and a rustic-lovely kind of chillax vibe. They have selected wines that pair wonderfully with all the yummy farm-to-table comfort food on their menu and best of all, you and your friends need not yell at each other just so you could talk.
Exposed Pipes. Recycled Materials. Vintage Vibe.
Laidback, a little too girly, but still beautiful
I find Grace Park as a savor-all-you-want kind of spot. It's cozy and casual, but at the same time it's chic and sophisticated. There's not just one age group that comes here. I've seen young entrepreneurs, college students, moms, and families come here and everyone usually spends a lot of time — usually more than the typical time spent for dinner. Good thing, Grace Park management doesn't mind.
Two things that we all probably have in common are: first is that, we're all passionate about food + wine and second, we're all drawn to the unusual elegance brought together by cement finishing, exposed pipes, and vintage-inspired elements that I rarely see in the other usual places that I frequent in the South and in Manila.
The food keeps me coming back.
I learned from friends that Grace Park is another Margarita Fores signature restaurant. Aaah, no wonder I love it here. Cibo and Lusso are my favorites and both are under the umbrella of restaurants of Margarita Fores. I guess it is no surprise why Grace Park is a favorite. [ Read: @ruussso loved Lusso ]
For starters, you can't go wrong with their Sardines Dip which I prefer to have with soft bread. I also like their Mushroom Field, Asiago Cream. I highly recommend the Fettuccine + Truffles + Organic Egg and Muscovado Beef. I have not come here without having someone else help me finish my food, so I guess it's safe to say that both Truffle Pasta and the Muscovado Beef are good for sharing. P recommends their OMG Burger. The runners-up for P and I are the Spinach Fettuccine Bolognese and the Chicken Parmigiana.
And, if you have a little more room on your belt, the Chocolate Lava Pastillas ( This is one of Grace Park's best sellers! ) is a must-try. P and I ordered 2 Chocolate Lava Pastillas the first time we dined at Grace Park. Other dessert options to indulge your sweet tooth are the Ensaimada Bread Pudding, Cuatros Leches, and the Lemon Walnut Cream Pie.
Expect to shell out at least P800 ($18) per head for a hearty meal, but don't worry because Grace Park will not disappoint. If you're in the mood for some dining splurge, Grace Park is ideal for dates or catching up with friends that you haven't seen in a loooooong time.
If you're planning to walk-in, the best time to do this would be during lunch on a weekday. Visit a different time, you'll have to try your luck because the place gets packed. I usually call to reserve a table if I'm going here for dinner because Grace Park does such a great job pleasing its patrons with the best happy food in town so be sure to make a reservation. I hate to disappoint most of you, but you ought to know that Grace Park can only accommodate a number of guests at a time. Again, be sure to make a reservation.Ü ☮..Peace + ❥_Love + Good Vibes. RUSS.
