THE GLASS DOOR is an Italian Resto Bar conceptualized by the Lazatin-Villonco family. It can be found in the former location of Chef Laudico’s Bistro Filipino in BGC.
It’s a hangout place for yuppies who love to drink after work , enjoy simple comfort food, and listen to cool music.
My partners and I — yuppies once — were recently at The Glass Door and here’s what we think about it…
The ambiance is dark-romantic. Most people here dress up to be seen.
Beautiful yuppies from multinational companies hanging out with friends. 🙂
MENU: Home made pasta, Main, Steak | Special of the Day | Signature Cocktails | Imported Beer Below Zero | Liquor, Shots, and Drinks
The menu is simple, focused on Italian favorites and quick bar chows.
✮ Creamy Butternut Squash (P175). A smooth blend with a sprinkling of crunchy bacon bits and homemade croutons.
We like this simple blend of pumpkin soup with chunks of croutons and bacon.
✮ Salmon Tartare (P280). A refreshing blend of salmon, lemon, and capers garnished with a sprig of dill.
For a nice appetizer, I recommend this raw salmon in siomai form. Put a dash of lemon before eating it.
Caesar Salad (P240). Crisp romaine lettuce with home made croutons, bacon bits, and Maj’s special dressing.
The salads are just OK and the serving sizes a bit small. I guess they wanted to keep the pricing below P300.
✮ Tartufo (P375). An earthy concoction of wild mushrooms with fragrant white truffle oil.
All of us unanimously agree that the homemade pasta is the best in The Glass Door. Be sure to order this mushroom truffle penne with bits of bacon.
US Angus Tenderloin (200g – P1,200) with Foie Gras drizzled with demi-glaze sauce.
The tenderloin was overcooked on the outside and super raw inside. They need to improve this.
Dogajolo Red (P250). A mixture of cabernet and sangiovese Italian.
There isn’t a lot of wine to choose from so we settled for this blend of cabernet and sangiovese. But they do have a good selection of imported beers and cocktails.
Fish Almondine (P360). One of our bestsellers! Creamy fish fillet in an almond and butter sauce.
If you’re looking for a fish main course, try this fish fillet with bits of almond. It was good, according to my partners who ordered it.
Scallopine Marsala (P420). A guaranteed favorite! Melt-in-your mouth beef with Marsala sauce.
This was OK. A good dish, especially when you’re drinking with friends.
My Mercato partners celebrating their 6th Year Wedding Anniversary. Congratulations! 🙂
Order a slice of tiramisu for a sweet ending to your meal.
The Glass Door is a good resto bar and hangout in the BGC area, with a nice loungy ambiance and a good selection cocktails and beer. There are a lot of yuppies even on a weekday.
Food is mostly average, but the homemade pastas are very good. We would also recommend the Salmon Tartare, Creamy Butternut Squash, and Tiramisu.
It would be nice if they improved their wine selections to better complement their food.
Budget is about P500-700/person, depending on what drinks you get.
Congrats to the Lazatin-Villonco family and our friend John Imperial for The Glass Door venture!
