Brunch on Sundays were always spent at LUMIERE with a plate of Eggs Benedict, Ricotta Pancakes and a sparkling glass of Mimosa. Since they opened a few years back, LUMIERE was notably one of the best restaurant in the metro - possibly even my favorite. A gem secretly tucked at the podium of LV Locsin Building along Makati Avenue, even their chic little paper menu placemats says it all
“Sunday Brunch is the soothing palliative to the morning after of the night before, to end-of-the-weekend blues, start of the work week angst, or simply, a dose of more cholesterol to dull the effects of a hangover.”
Lumiere has now been replaced by Chef Colin Mackays’ SALA. I’ve tried Museum(M) Café and Apartment 1B’s brunch but it really isn’t the same as LUMIERE's.
Does anyone know whatever happened to LUMIERE? Buddha wants to know.
