Casual elegance, laid back luxury, relaxed sophistication—these are some of the words we like to use when asked what we look for in a restaurant. Nothing too formal or stuffy but still refined and understated—and that’s what we love about Mirèio. Called an upscale French brasserie, Mirèio has been highlighting French Mediterranean cuisine since it opened two years ago on the 9th floor of the Raffles Makati. To celebrate its second anniversary this month, Mirèio is offering a not-to-be-missed “one-for-one” special from December 12 to 15, 2018.
This five-day period is a great opportunity to enjoy, whether for the first or the nth time, many of Mireio’s most popular dishes, with two orders for the price of one dish. Among the appetizers, a must would be the signature Smoked Salmon Tartare with Granny Smith Apple and Dijon Mustard Cream, which is so good, we can actually finish two orders ourselves! A more indulgent starter is the Soft-boiled Egg topped with Caviar on a Cauliflower Purée. Or one can opt for more traditional French dishes like Pesto Soup or Salade Niçoise, both mainstays of the Provençal table.
For the main courses, it will be hard to choose among the signature dishes being offered. The Duck Breast and Foie Gras on Roasted Grapes is French cuisine at its most decadent. Or one can go for heartier fare like Crispy Braised Pork Belly served with Green Pea Fricassée or the Roasted Australian Lamb Rack. Of course, one can opt for classic Provençal fare, whether slow-cooked Oxtail Parmentier, or a light, Mediterranean-style Pan-seared Salmon on a bed of tomato confit, garnished with wilted spinach.
Traditional French desserts are also part of the “one-for-one” deal with a choice of the Provence-inspired Lavender Crème Brûlée, 65% Maracaibo Chocolate Mousse with Truffle and Hazelnut Crunch, or delightful Cream Puff, Salted Caramel Ice Cream, Nougatine. The best part is the wines are also part of the special offering, with two glasses for the price of one.
Mireio will cap off its 2nd anniversary celebration with a Luxe Sunday Brunch on December 16 where guests can enjoy a sumptuous buffet highlighting Provençal and French dishes, including lots of desserts of course.
The Luxe Sunday Brunch is priced at P3,170 plus VAT. For information and reservations, call (03) 795-0707 or email [email protected]
