Expat X Wolfgang’s Steakhouse

Screen shot 2018-02-09 at 4.11.01 PM

Of intimate gatherings, and delectable sendoffs

Recently, Expat partnered with Wolfgang’s Steakhouse Manila, hosting a steak dinner in honor of Philippine Ambassador to the US Jose Manuel “Babe” Romualdez, who went back home briefly before attending to his new appointment full-time in Washington D.C.

What was originally intended to be an intimate gathering among close friends turned into an impromptu party, as guests made up of heads of mission from countries that  included the US, Singapore, New Zealand, Argentina, and the Czech Republic, along with executives from Wolfgang’s Steakhouse, prominent business leaders, and friends from Don Revy Philippines brought a collective energy that perfectly kicked off the weekend for everyone in attendance.

The dinner also coincided with the opening of Wolfgang’s Steakhouse’s new branch at The Podium in Ortigas Center – the second Manila branch, with another one set to open in BGC in the middle of 2018.

Wolfgang’s Steakhouse Vice President of Operations Lydia D’Amato joined the group, and provided insights on the brand, why the dinner was as good as it was, and its expansion plans in the country, and the rest of the region.

Meanwhile, friends from Don Revy took care of the night’s libation, serving Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir, which complemented the delectable dry-aged steaks like a dream.

Expat and Wolfgang’s Steakhouse wishes Ambassador Romualdez luck on his new post, while we congratulate the country’s premier steakhouse on opening its new branch!

Cheers!

About Wolfgang Steakhouse

The original Wolfgang’s Steakhouse opened its Park Avenue location in 2004. Some 14 years later, 2018 will be seeing its 19th branch open—all while remaining faithful to offering the renowned New York steakhouse experience.

Wolfgang’s uses only the best quality meat you can find in the market – USDA Prime Black Angus – part of only two percent of all beef in the US market that attain “prime” rating. The meats are then dry-aged (in-house) for an average of 28 days – a highly-controlled process that results in a tender, more flavorful slab of meat.

Wolfgang’s Steakhouse is located at Resorts World Manila, 2/F Newport Mall, Newport City, Pasay, and at the G/F The Podium, Ortigas Center, Mandaluyong. The upcoming BGC branch will be at the new Philippine Stock Exchange Tower in Bonifacio Global City. For more information, visit www.wolfgangssteakhouse.ph
