The Red Piano Resto Lounge: Live entertainment with globally traditioned dishes (arya plaza bgc)

Fort Bonifacio, Taguig, Metro Manila, Philippines

Opened just last January 2018 within Arthaland’s Arya Plaza, The Red Piano boasts of two things:
the red piano
an eclectic lineup of dishes collected from all around the world, 

the red piano arya plaza

and live entertainment from a beautiful Chanteuse accompanied by a pianist on a red grand piano.

Before digging in, proprietor and chef, Carlo Llave shared the stories behind The Red Piano’s bestsellers, how they were carefully conceptualized and picked from all his travels from around the world.

Food
san fran clam chowder
♥ San Fran Clam Chowder (550 php)
Kicking off our meal was a steaming bowl of The Red Piano’s signature San Fran Clam Chowder served in a sourdough bowl.  Prepared as close as possible to the Clam Chowder in San Francisco.  This bowl contains ¾ of fresh claims pressed into ½ cup of pure Clam juice. The result? A full-flavored clam chowder just perfect for dipping sourdough bread in again and again and again.  If you will only get just one dish here… it should be this one.

spaghetti alle carbonara with guanciale
Spaghetti alle Carbonara with Guanciale (510 php)
Next came the Spaghetti alle Carbonara with Guanciale.  It’s claim to fame is being made the authentic Italian way with pecorino romano and parmagiano Reggiano cheeses— Chef Carlo takes authenticity seriously going so far as to hand-carrying “guanciale” or pig’s cheek from Italy! The flavors of both cheeses and the guanciale were pleasant on the taste buds but a bit too rich for my own personal preference.

Even before we could finish the Carbonara, our servers brought out two mains which were the pride of Chef CarloBoeuf Bourguignon and Osso Bucco

Osso Buco over Risotto (1,500 php)
Both proudly made with prime ingredients: Boeuf Bourguignon with USDA beef, and Osso Bucco with imported veal from New Zealand.

Pork Skin Cracklins' (180 Php)
Now—if something still holds you back from a visit to the The Red Piano, their humble appetizer, Pork Skin Cracklins', might just change your mind. 

the red paino resto lounge
To my knowledge, The Red Piano is the only restaurant that serves chicharon cooked for 17 hours, producing something of gargantuan proportions—literally. The giant chunk of pork fat could be the perfect accompaniment of a night of singing. 😉
