Bait’s by Chef Joseph Margate
Experience fresh seafood fusion in the heart of Salcedo!
A new seafood restaurant just celebrated their grand opening last March: Bait’s by Chef Joseph Margate! Located in Signa Designer Residences’ Ground Floor in Valero cor. Rufino St., this seafood kitchen is charging things up, one dish at a time!
Joseph Margate, alumni of the California Culinary Academy in San Francisco, brought a whole new twist to the seafood dining experience. Margate, who served three years in the W hotel in Seattle, is introducing to Manila his fusion between the Californian and French style of cooking. Gourmet Magazine featured him as one of the few Filipino chefs who was nominated for People’s New Best Chef Awards of Food and Wine.
Since the menu varies due to the seasonal availability of seafood, you are bound to find a new dish every time you go. We recommend the Grilled Prawns (P590), which has a bit of kick because of the spices, and the Oysters on the Half Shell (P57/shell), which is served fresh. To complete dining experience, order a small bottle of wine that would pair perfectly with your meal.
