Our love for food, especially local dishes, is being recognized the world over. The latest addition? The inclusion of a Philippine restaurant in CNN’s list of new restaurants to try in 2019.

The restaurant included is Metronome, a French bistro that features “serious gourmet cooking in a relaxed, bistro-style environment.” It joins eateries from London, Monaco, Washington, Tokyo, Brisbane, Hong Kong, and more.

According to the CNN article written by Chris Dwyer, chef Miko Calo’s “focus is on the flavors of her home country, making the most of excellent produce using the skills she honed during her career. An à la carte and a tasting menu are both set to entice diners in Manila’s business hub of Makati.”

Metronome is run by Calo, an École Grégoire-Ferrandi graduate who cut her teeth in Joël Robuchon restaurants in London, Singapore, and Paris. In the culinary world, Robuchon is dubbed the chef of the century by the guide Gault Millau and has the most Michelin stars at 32.

The restaurant is located at the ground floor of the Grand Midori Building in Bolanos Street, Makati City.
