Flatiron 1771 Restaurant: New York Comfort Food
"Tasty appetizers, flavorful entrees, quirky beverages, filling hot lunches to go—we bring you their bold, comforting flavors every day until midnight, and make the dynamic, magnetic energy of New York come alive in every bite."
The initial plan was to treat myself at Hello Kitty Cafe. Unfortunately the much-awaited cafe was closed until July 26, so I went ahead to Flatiron 1771, also located at Uptown Mall, BGC, Taguig City.
Flatiron is inspired by New York's urban comfort food. They are conveniently located at the ground floor of Uptown Mall. Here's what I ordered:
Mango Orange Coolers
Bowtie pasta, Napolitaine sauce, bell peppers, salami, and bacon covered with cheese and gratinated. Available in solo for P210 and for sharing at P 395.
Butter, Cinnamon and Apples, Scoop of Vanilla in a Chocolate Fudge.
A view from the outside, the awesome dancing fountain of Uptown Mall. It spits fire!!!!
Located at the Ground Floor and just beside the dancing fountain of Uptown Mall, the place is easier to access compared to other fancy restaurants at the mall. I surely enjoyed the shop’s aesthetic appearance; its simple white walls, airy atmosphere and high ceilings that made my mind at ease.
There was only one server assigned to me. He was very courteous and quite sensitive to my whole "alone time" moment. He even escorted me to the best seat that will give me the view of the dancing fountain. The food was served quickly, even the dessert that I reserved "for later" was served just right on time.
I love that the food was served fresh and hot. Everything I ordered are in solo package, but was actually enough for two (2) people to share. I must say that the food in Flatiron is definitely made with love and care from the kitchen. The total bill for what I ordered is P 740 - a good price for an awesome treat for myself. My biggest regret right now is for not ordering their specialty, Flatiron Brisket.
"We love New York’s fast-paced, on-the-go lifestyle so much, we designed Flatiron around it. We play upbeat, high-energy music, our foyer buzzes with activity, and our open kitchen, was created perfectly for you to enjoy a superb dining experience."
The verdict? Flatiron is a good place to treat yourself after a busy week. The crowd is a mix of professionals and artsy people who seem productive even when they’re just dining The best feature is the dancing fountain outside the window, which made me smile in amazement several times. I will definitely go back to Flatiron to try their specialties. :)
