Forbes Town

July 29, 2022

Dr. Wine, a bistro offering quality French fare and more than 300 wine labels, has recently opened a new branch at Forbes Town. Dr. Wine is welcoming guests even after 10PM, which is perfect for late drinks and midnight food cravings.  Dr. Wine already has a loyal following from their first Philippine branch in Poblacion, Makati. With the opening of their second one in Forbes Town, its founder Vincent Landais said Forbes Town was actually their initial venue choice. He said, “The first Dr. Wine was supposed to be here [at Forbes Town], five years ago. I have always been in love with this district. To me, it has potential.” 

The drinks

People go to Dr. Wine for the exquisite choices of drinks and good times, and the Forbes Town branch will never disappoint. They have a repertory of booze that will satisfy every type of guest. They have a well-balanced wine list of more than 300 wines, all of which have been meticulously screened by their team to ensure the quality for every guest. Also included in their offerings is a huge selection of classic cocktails and premium line of champagnes.

The food

  Three words: French fresh oysters. Dr. Wine prides themselves with offering fresh seafood until closing time, which attracts midnight guests who are looking for places to chill and hang out. “[For] our French oysters, we work closely with a food importer. They have to be very fresh,” he said, adding that their partner farmers in France catch the oysters Tuesday to Wednesday, and by Friday morning, the oysters are already delivered to their restaurant.   If dining, don’t miss out on one of the bestsellers, their Signature Chicken Liver Mousse, which is sweetened with original Canadian Maple Syrup and French Hennessy Cognac. For more meaty delights, try their 4-Signature Homemade Sausages, which comes in four options, the Provencale Herbs, Cheese, Black Truffle, and Spicy Flavor.  For more premium celebrations, order their 36-hour Sous Vide Lamb Shank served with their signature Garnish Pommes Aligot or the incredibly delectable Wagyu Tenderloin Millefeuilles Beef served with Mushroom Duxelle and Blue Cheese Sauce. “Almost 80% of our menu is exclusive here in [Forbes Town],” said Vincent. 

 The experience

Rustic elegance is the theme of Dr. Wine. With wide open spaces and cozy interiors, guests can easily feel at home lounging at Dr. Wine with family and friends.  Apart from taking care of the food and drinks, Vincent said it is very important for them to achieve a warm ambiance, where people can feel genuinely comfortable. “You go to a wine bar to have a good time,” said Vincent. “It’s a mix of a lot of things. We want to make sure [the guests] will have a great experience.”  If in need of a location for more intimate gatherings, they also have nice private rooms ready for booking. Located in one of the metro’s most chic destinations, Dr. Wine also provides entertaining music for guests all night long.  The French bistro is open from 5PM to 2AM, but they are planning to extend their hours soon to cater to more visitors.
