If your in the mood to splurge on a good meal with all the perks. Sala in it's new location in Makati is still one of the very few restos that will suit. Wine selection boast of great New World choices that suits Chef Colin's repetoire well. Always, leave room for dessert ...there rustic ones are very well worth the extra calories.
Aubergine is a relatively new restaurant with a very promising pedigree. Based on my two visits, I'd say that their entrees are all pretty good but, their appetizers and desserts still needs improvement. Presentation is always pretty but, lacks the 'yummy' factor. Some of their versions of the classics - like for example, carpaccio appetizer and apple tarte tartin dessert fails to deliver. I concur too that they have a pretty good wine selection and look forward to coming back to check their degustation menu sometime soon.
