Baroque-inspired artworks


Residents of Laguna and neighboring areas no longer need to go to Europe to enjoy Baroque art. Le Maison de Yelo Lane in Pagsanjan, Laguna is a place where you can enjoy delicious food with Baroque-inspired art in the backdrop.

This newly renovated branch of the Quezon-founded restaurant just re-opened on 29 July, so you can still be among the first to enjoy its elevated ambiance and the wide variety of food offerings they serve.

The restaurant boasts a Bauhaus-inspired interior, with black Chesterfield sofas and black and white marble tables that make a wonderful background for a classy Instagram pic. The gold accents on the walls and ceiling lights make the place look even more expensive.

Of course, there are the Baroque-inspired portrait paintings on the wall which are the restaurant’s hallmark.


Steaks for your dinner date

They have Tomahawk steak – beef ribeye that’s served with the rib bone still attached.

They also have a boneless steak offering for those who want to skip the hassle of cutting around the bone. You can get a single piece of ribeye steak, but you should consider ordering their 2-piece ribeye as you may not be able to get enough of its flavor.
