As Philippine Airlines debuts its historic new nonstop services between Manila and New York City from October 29, the national carrier is collaborating with top global brand Wolfgang’s Steakhouse. The steakhouse, which originally made waves in midtown Manhattan, via PAL, will be serving gourmet quality steak dinners on the 17-hour flights (a new record as the Philippines’ longest-ever commercial air route). Business class passengers on these nonstop flights to New York will experience elegant steakhouse-style dining on board the 4-Star carrier’s Airbus A350 aircraft.
“As a global carrier, we want our passengers to experience the best in-cabin dining experience on our flagship route to New York," said PAL Marketing Vice President, Ria Carrion Domingo. "To achieve this, we are partnering with top-rated establishments who can guarantee high-quality standards in food preparation, style and taste. We are proud to partner with Wolfgang’s Steakhouse, a true New York institution in high-class dining”
Among the roster of delightfully delicious meals on the menu for PAL’s prime New York route is Wolfgang’s specialty steak, featuring USDA Prime Black Angus Beef that is dry-aged in its own specially-designed aging room, under controlled temperature and humidity for an average of 28 days. This painstaking process enhances the tenderness of the meat and ensures a juicy, full-bodied flavor.
The Manila to New York menu onboard PAL Flight PR126 offers the complete Wolfgang’s experience: French Onion Soup, Fillet Mignon, served with steamed broccoli and mashed potatoes as well as Grilled Salmon in tomato and olive sauce capped with New York Cheesecake.
The New York to Manila menu for flight PR127 offers Beverly Hills Chopped Salad, Mushroom Soup, Wolfgang’s Striploin Steak, Grilled Chilean Seabass, and Key Lime Pie.
Wolfgang's Steakhouse's flagship restaurant is located on Park Avenue in Manhattan, and is frequently ranked among the top ten steakhouses in the Big Apple. Owner Wolfgang Zwiener has translated his longtime personal experience working in other steakhouses to create an international network of restaurants with 20 locations, including in New Jersey, California, Florida and parts of Asia.
Wolfgang’s now serves Filipino diners at its two Philippine branches in Newport Mall and the Podium in Ortigas.
