Spiral reopens Oct. 2

Because clean is the new chic and safety is the new luxury, Spiral makes its much-anticipated comeback as it reopens its doors on Oct. 2 with new signature specialties prepared à la minute by expert culinary artisans and stringent standards that go beyond the norm of safety and hygiene measures.

Proper social distancing is observed in each table
Guests are in for a fresh market experience to personally select premium-quality produce from Spiral’s newest hub, the Central Market. Freshly-selected ingredients are then prepared à la minute in various styles like moules marinière, fritto misto, or seafood al forno at the French Stove; mala hotpot or wok stir-fried at the Chinese station; customized teppanyaki at the Hot Japanese station; or a special chef’s recommendation prepared from a secret menu.

At Spiral, flexibility is king. Gourmands enjoy unlimited freedom in customizing their dishes—be it in food preparation or ingredient combination—based on their personal preference.

New refinements are rolled out across Spiral’s 21 ateliers under the leadership of newly-appointed Executive Chef Bettina Arguelles, the first-ever Filipina Executive Chef in a five-star international branded hotel in the Philippines.

Each plate shall only be in contact with the guest, apart from the chef safely serving the dish from their respective atelier.
Opening the gastronomic journey, the Asian section presents delicacies that highlight the contemporary food cultures of Filipino, Thai, Korean, Chinese, Singaporean, and Vietnamese cuisines. Over at the North Indian atelier, guests can experience the chaat corner and the live roti station. The fiery grills of the Churrasco station are back at work with crowd-favorite premium meats while the quintessential French Stove presents premium weekend indulgences such as caviar, pasta and risotto finished on a cheese wheel, and a newly-added crudo bar. Crossing over to the decadent haven that is L’Epicerie, partake of creamy raclette and cheese and charcuterie platter du jour curated from the metro’s widest fromage selection.

The health and well-being of guests and staff remain the top priority of Spiral and Sofitel Manila. Accor has launched the ALLSAFE Cleanliness and Prevention Label, a signature set of global cleanliness and prevention criteria developed with and vetted by Bureau Veritas, a world leader in testing, inspections, and certification. Integrating its benchmarks with national and local government guidelines, Sofitel goes beyond its norm of stringent safety and hygiene measures towards a new standard in the world of hospitality.

Chef in safety gear
Seating capacity is currently limited to 30 percent with one-meter spacing between guests. Transparent dividers are installed on reception desks and culinary ateliers while private dining rooms are available for more exclusivity. Staff members are equipped with safety apparel while queues are managed with floor signages for demarcation. As they embark on their gastronomic journey, guests may go around the various ateliers to select their favorite specialties following a strict one-way route. To maintain minimal exposure, each plate shall only be in contact with the guest, apart from the chef safely serving the dish from their respective atelier. A one-dish-per-plate policy shall be implemented to avoid cross-contamination. For made-to-order dishes, order numbers shall be provided to the guest for claiming. Further hygiene measures are implemented with an online beverage menu accessible through a QR code on each table while contactless payment solutions via GCash, Alipay, WeChat Pay, and GrabPay are made available. In accordance with government protocols, guests below the age of 21 years old and above 60 years old are not permitted to dine in the restaurant during General Community Quarantine (GCQ).
