It is rarely that I write a blog about a restaurant. I often write about places I have visited, occasionally mentioning a restaurant, but not writing a whole blog about it. But the dining experience which I experienced here is incomprehensible, which dictates that I write a blog about it.
Bar by Blacksheep is located at 32nd Street and 5th Avenue, at the Penthouse of the W Fifth Avenue, in Bonifacio Global City. It is open Monday to Saturday from 7:00 pm until late, they accept guest until 10:00 pm or 10:30 pm. They are only open for dinner. I have been at the W before for a Globe Community event at the Skye Bar about a year ago. The lobby is simple yet elegant, which does not prepare you, once you step out the lift, and enter Bar by Blacksheep.
The dining area is opulent, and welcoming. It also exudes class and sophistication. It also provides you an ample view of the BGC skyline, perfect for dates especially this coming Father’s Day. The restaurant floor is spacious, and the design is contemporary. The lighting is perfect, making the room not too bright, and not too dark, offering a perfect ambiance for casual get togethers, romantic dinners, and hang out with the boys!
And if you are like me, who loves to collect whiskies, and other spirits, the sight of their 100 Single Malts Selection simply makes you feel like a child, who happens to stumble upon a room full of his favorite toys. I was in awe of the various selection of single malt whiskies they had, some of which I have not even heard or tasted before.
Bar by Blacksheep does not offer a la carte, they have but a single menu, thereby not offering any choices for the diners, but their menu offers an adventurous experience, especially for the first time diners. We were first treated to Amuse Bouche, which simply looks like an egg in a bowl, but as they say looks can be deceiving. This dish offers an explosion of flavours in your mouth. This dish will surely make a lasting impression.
Their Kitayama Wagyu Striploin is simply delicious. It is succulent, juicy, and cooked just right. It may seem that they have a small serving, but the small serving is enough to whet your appetite for more. The experience was simply Amazing! Plus you get to choose a whisky of your fancy. What else can you ask for? Nada!
I made my reservation through the ResDiary Philippines (www.resdiary.ph/resdiary.com), the latest in online restaurant reservation and table management system.
