With the crystal chandelier and plush velvet seats, Lusso gives us a peek into chef and owner Margarita Forés’ childhood travelling with her parents and discovering the world’s most exclusive hotel lobbies. She succeeds in replicating the white-gloved service combined with luxe comfort food for the discerning Makati crowd.
• The wine list—while not that extensive—is well-curated and reflects the discerning palate of the owner and her clientele.
• Forés fans will zero in on the pasta dishes, and regulars swear by the spinach taglierini with asiago, mushrooms, and prosciutto. The luxe "mac & cheese"—tube pasta in a threecheese sauce with pancetta and croutons—is life changing.
• The sandwiches are popular for good reason, utilising only the finest ingredients and bread. The lobster and river prawn roll is a bestseller. For those looking for the ultimate indulgence, the Lusso demi-pound burger is the way to go.
