Flatiron 1771 takes on the NYC vibe
Taking inspiration from New York’s vibrant vibe and pulsating night life, Flatiron 1771 Restaurant and Bar at the Uptown Mall in Taguig is making sure guests experience the same kind of fun and flair.
Inspired by the triangular steel-framed structure of the iconic Flatiron Building of New York, the recently renovated Flatiron 1771 Restaurant and Bar is hoping to bring the same modern, upscale vibe that the city is famous for. From its cozy interiors, to the stylish and well-laid out tables and chairs, down to its well lit bar, the place is sure to perk up your day and set your nights on fire.
And to make your dining even more authentic, Flatiron 1771 carefully curates dishes that bring the exciting New York experience right to your table. The selection marries the melting pot history and culture of New York with the 1771 Group’s “no borders cuisine.”
When one thinks of New York, a number of different influences fused harmoniously together come to mind. For starters, try the Spanish-inspired Chorizo and Cheddar Croquetas to inspire your palate. While waiting for your mains, sample the delectable Baked Mussels, or opt for the Potato Skins Platter that comes in either smoked salmon, beef brisket and tuna.
What is New York without pizza and pasta? Among Flatiron’s bestseller is the Four-Cheese Pizza in béchamel or tomato sauce, baked generously with mozzarella, cheddar cheese, Parmesan, plus blue cheese to take it up a notch.
Adding a local twist, enjoy the decadent Truffle Carbonara with Chicken Skin Crackling. A lighter option is the Fish Piccata with thinly sliced fish fillet seasoned with lemon, coated with bread crumbs, and fried in butter until golden brown. The fish is then served over lemon butter creamed spaghetti. Also, one of the resto’s highlights is the Seafood Jambalaya and the Prime Rib Steak.
At night, the outdoor bar offers a different mood. Unwind with cocktails inspired from the different facets of New York.
The Big Apple is blended scotch with apple juice and lemon juice, and a dash of nutmeg and cinnamon for texture. If you prefer a more calming concoction, Christopher Street has Earl Grey tea-infused gin with lemon juice and soda water. Popularized by the ladies of “Sex and the City,” the Cosmo is a vodka-based drink with Cherry Heering and cranberry syrup mixed with lemon juice and egg white. Wall Street is bourbon based with coffee-infused rosso vermouth and chocolate bitters. All these can be paired with the delectable bar chows.
Definitely a modern hangout, Flatiron 1771 is the latest “it” spot for a round of great food and drinks among friends, colleagues and families.
