THE COMMON TABLE @ SALCEDO: Progressive Gastropub by Chef Ian Padilla! (First Look)

Common Table Oysters

THE COMMON TABLE is a progressive gastropub concept in Salcedo by Chef Ian Padilla of La Girolle fame. The name is inspired by the communal dining habits of foodie bar goers.

We've missed Chef Ian Padilla's tasting menus and casual fine cuisine from the La Girolle days. We are happy he's back in the Manila scene with a fresh new concept in the former location of Chef Sau's Le Bistro Vert, beside Fraser place.

We tried Chef Ian's The Common Table food during the soft opening and here's what we think...
