Todd English Food Hall, a 900-square-meter specialty culinary hall that offers a mix of fresh and prepared international gourmet food, opens in Manila today.

Known for its nine (9) food stations and European-inspired interiors, the renowned restaurant in New York‘s The Plaza Hotel brings it’s dishes, with additional offerings catering to the local taste, to the Manila dining scene.

Created by celebrity chef and restaurateur Todd English, and brought to the Philippines by the group of Rikki Dee, the food hall opens today at one end of SM Aura‘s SkyPark at the 5th floor, interestingly right across the Fitness First gym,

The Food

Presenting a posh ala carte dining experience, one of Todd English Food Hall Manila crowd-favorite food station is “The Pasta Station“. It serves freshly-made pasta and sauces crafted with imported ingredients. You can even see your order being cooked right across.

My second favorite is the Pizza Station where Todd English is known for having one of the best flat-bread pizza dough recipe in the culinary world. You can also watch as your pizza is made. In fact, the first 100 customers through the doors of Todd English Food Hall today, March 25, will be getting a free 1-year supply of flatbreads.

The Interiors

Aside from the carousel of cupcakes at the center of the food hall, one of the interesting focal points in a customized pasta machine responsible for what you will see in what I call the “Pasta Wall“.

Wood Stone

The interiors aim to mirror the one from New York with mosaic marble floors, elegant wood paneling, ceramic backdrops and stained-glass windows.

Personally, there are some areas which could still be improve on and I believe they would eventually add more artifacts and elements of design that would further develop the cohesiveness in the design they would like to achieve.

The Carousel of Cupcakes!
