From now until May 26, Rossini's presents a special dinner menu with each and every course paired with Primosic wines from the northeastern region of Italy. Chef Gaetano Palumbo creates dishes that combine comforting Italian flavors with seasonal white asparagus—think potato-white asparagus gnocchi with speck ham, and tuna tartare with white asparagus puree. Make sure you save enough room for chef Gaetano's marverlous white asparagus gelato with black truffle that's so creamy and rich you'll want a econd scoop. Price is B2,500 for three courses/two glasses of wine, B3,000 for four courses/three glasses of wine, B3,650 for five courses/four glasses of wine and B3,950 for five-course/six-glass of wine.

BK Brunch Club
For five consecutive weekends starting Jun 15, BK will launch a brand new event with fantastic offers on daytime dining. This isn’t your run-of-the-mill Sunday brunch with long buffet lines and the same old cooking stations. Here, 25 of the city’s top fine-dining and fine-casual restaurants craft their best daytime, family-style sharing menus. Many of these restaurants don’t normally do brunch or even lunch, such as 80/20, Jua and Sensi, so it’s an opportunity for them to create special dishes—and for your to sample them! Pre-booking starts May 27 for Citi credit card members, and general booking on Jun 3. Visit bkrestaurantweek.com/brunch.
