 2013_sept19_life9Whether planning for a full-blown extravagant party or an intimate celebration with just family and friends, a child’s birthday is one meaningful occasion that parents are most excited, not to mention most inspired to celebrate. With special “party musts” thoughtfully in mind, parents can now fully realize the dream party they wish for and more for their little ones at Papa John’s, as it introduces its new Kiddie Party Theme Packages.

Saying good-bye to stressful planning and boring, uninspired birthday parties Papa John’s Pizza’s party packages (Princess & Pirates, Circus & Clowns, Sports, Speedy Cars, Fashionista and Animal Friends) offer different assortment of fun activities, food, and entertainment.

A grand reinvention 

At the cornerstone of any great restaurant is the food. And for guests visiting the 31st floor of  Fraser Place in Salcedo Village, Makati City, there’s definitely a mouthful of flavors to look forward to, as nothing less than gourmet is cooking up at the “new.”

2013_sept19_life10Cravings Fraser Place turns a new leaf, as it re-emerges from being an in-house facility for hotel guests to full-service restaurant, catering broader palates with expanded lunch choices that are, “very cosmopolitan and full of tantalizing global favorites.”

Offering guests a satisfying mix of authentic continental cuisines that are “reinterpreted” with Filipino twists, the lunch set includes two selections of dishes and a pastry choice of the day.

Seeking to switch the space to a more dinner-focused operation and as an endearing choice spot for city urbanites, the restaurant has also recently undergone a tasteful interior makeover.  Sans the ornate fixtures that are a complete departure from most casual and fine dining joints in Makati, the refreshing change in Cravings Fraser Place is truly immaculate to behold.

Starting with a cleaner floorspace, the outlet’s main area made a great option to stick with simpler, minimalist details. Contrasting battle of textures are also evident yet tamed to a perfect minimal, creating a balance between the furniture’s rustic wooden and metallic elements. The stylish hanging lamps and liquor holders, meanwhile, seamlessly provided a charming “country-meets-contemporary” vibe.

Cravings Fraser Place Manila is located at the 31st Floor, Forbes Tower, Valero Street in Salcedo Village, Makati City. To arrange special reservations and bookings, call (02) 815-4269, email, or like its official Facebook fanpage and
