“If it’s a good quality, it’s really basic cooking. Like what Chef Chris [Cordero] said, it’s just really salt and pepper. Hindi mo kailangang palitan ‘yong taste ng meat with sauces and gravy," says Jet 7 Bistro brand ambassador Luigi Nuñez (not in photo) about its premium Angus steak (upper right).

Looking for a good steakhouse in Metro Manila?

The Jet 7 Bistro along Timog Avenue in Quezon City just might meet your expectations.

The newly opened restaurant offers a selection of culinary delights from the kitchen of different continents—from Italian pasta to Armenian kebab to Dungeness crab.

Freshly baked herbed rolls.
These rolls can be enjoyed in two ways:
with butter spread or with roasted garlic then dipped in olive oil.

Herb Roasted Chicken and BBQ Beef Ribs.
The stuffed chicken is nicely seasoned while the beef ribs are cooked
for hours to make it tender and juicy.
The savory taste of this combo goes well with the rice pilaf and vegetable salad.

Strawberry Sabayon.
The sweet and creamy custard balances the sour taste of strawberry.
The addition of chocolate biscuit makes this dessert more delicious.

For pièce de résistance, the new steakhouse boasts its 28 oz French-cut premium rib eye Angus steak, which is cooked to your discerning palate’s preference.


Brand Ambassador Luigi Nuñez, who is also one of the CEOs of Beer Below Zero, says the steak house is proud about the quality of meat it uses.

“If it’s a good quality, it’s really basic cooking.

“Like what Chef Chris [Cordero] said, it’s just really salt and pepper.

“Hindi mo kailangang palitan ‘yong taste ng meat with sauces and gravy.

“‘Yon meat pa lang, for me, it’s the selling factor of steak,” he says.

Jet 7 Bistro's pride, 28 oz French-cut premium rib eye Angus steak.
This juicy steak is best enjoyed with wine.

One serving of this premium steak costs P3,800. But Luigi reminds diners not to be overwhelmed by its price.

“Magugulat ka because it’s P3,800. With that, that’s almost one kilo of steak.

“But it’s really good for sharing.

“With US ribeye, ganun din naman siya, the only difference is it’s French cut.


“Kung mag-isa ka lang ang you look at the menu, wow, P3,800, but it’s really for sharing,” he explains.

The preparation of the food is supervised by chefs Cris Cordero and Bobby Ignacio.

To complete the dining experience, owner Jet Lorenzano keeps an eye on every little detail of the restaurant’s classy interior design.

The combination of red and black adds class to Jet 7 Bistro's comfy dining area.

The ambiance is made even livelier with good music from different bands playing every day.

At the restaurant's press launch held recently, the entertainment press caught Jessa Zaragoza’s young brother, Lloyd Zaragoza, singing soul music with his band Art ‘N Soul.

The group will be playing at Jet Bistro every Thursday night.

Meanwhile, Luigi announces that its second branch will be in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.

“In the Philippines kasi, for me, there’s no good steakhouse.

“It’s very difficult to find one that specializes in good steak.


“I think Jet7 Bistro, especially with the expansion plans in BGC, will really make its name in the food industry,” he says optimistically.
