The weather may be getting cooler but ‘tis definitely the season to feel warm and jolly. After almost two years of being cooped up, finally being allowed to intimately gather with our loved ones is the Christmas miracle we have all been hoping for. And while it’s important to still practice safety precautions, the Yuletide cheer is here and we are definitely getting into the holiday spirit!

Since almost all Filipino gatherings are centered on food, now is the best time to support local, and visit some of the new restaurants that opened during the pandemic. Since there will certainly be a lot of photos taken, better make sure your backdrop is IG-worthy, too! Don't worry, we got you covered. We listed below all the aesthetic newly-opened restaurants for you to try this season.

8 Newly Opened Aesthetic Restaurants in Metro Manila for Your Intimate Christmas Gatherings:

With its breezy, resort-inspired interiors, the “dough eyed baby sister” of Pampanga’s Café Fleur is an absolute breath of fresh air. Helmed by Chef Sau del Rosario, they serve an array of colorful dishes that taste just as delicious as it looks. Make sure to leave room for dessert!

What once was the South’s best-kept secret has made its way North this 2021. The casual kitchen café boasts of fun, modern-eclectic interiors, with just the right touches of quirk. Even with a generous sprinkling of patterns and bold colors, they were still able to make the space still feel light and contemporary. PS: Ask about their speakeasy!

3. Jones All Day

Millennials, rejoice! In case you’re still not over Mr. Jones closing its diner doors, you will be pleased to learn that this bistro and bakery descends from the same line. While carrying some nostalgic favorites, like the Eggs Benny and the Tapa, Jones All Day is a much cozier and chicer brand of its own—they even have a raw bar! Totally instagrammable is their marquee that changes with every day of the week.
