In celebration of Bastille Day (French National Day on July 14), Sofitel Philippines is featuring renowned Maître Fromagier Gérard Poulard, together with 100 premium and artisan cheeses (about P1M worth) from different high quality farms flown in from France.

Instagram

LARTIZAN - Our Awesome Planet-61.jpg

LARTIZAN is the artisanal French Bakery, Restaurant, and Tea Salon of the French Baker founder, Johnlu Koa.

It started as a boulangerie in partnership with Mickey's Delicatessen along Jupiter Street. Now, it has transformed into a French Cafe, with authentic French pastries and baked products, and a European cafe ambiance.

I love their signature teas from Mariage Frères in Paris.

We had the pleasure of dining with Johnlu recently and coming up with recommendations on having an awesome dining or tea time experience at Lartizan...

LE JARDIN is a penthouse garden-themed French restaurant by celebrated French Chef Gils Brault, famous for his top-rated Trois Gourmands restaurant in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam. It's popular for serving classic dishes cooked the traditional French way, and for making their own breads, cheeses, and desserts.

Chef Hasset Go of MedChef, together with Chef Jonas Ng of Mango Tree and Huat Pot fame, trained and worked as apprentices under Chef Gils Brault in Vietnam for 6 months. They were able to convince Chef Gils to partner with them and open his traditional French restaurant concept in Manila.

Working with owner partners James Ng, Peter Mangasi, and  Mike Tayag, they opened one of the most romantic French restaurants in Manila on the penthouse of W 5th.
