Last Month’s #7
Grape Escape is a wine lounge and kitchen and is the first of its kind in Maginhawa. They first made its appearance a year ago in the food park, StrEAT: Maginhawa. The owners wanted a more permanent place for people to socialize and enjoy wine so they opened this full-fledged restaurant in March 1. It’s a place for catching up with family and friends over great food and a warm and inviting ambiance (they have a great wine selection too!) It’s not for big groups as the space can get a bit cramped. We recommend their Salpicao, Polpette, and Blueberry Tiramisu. Our insider tip: Their sangria isn’t only good but they serve it in huge wine glasses!
