The restaurant is inspired by Raging Bull, a film that revolves around the story of an Italian boxer played by Robert de Niro. Its dishes are made by Chef Nathan Griffin, an English native who began his culinary passion in 2000, and uses only the finest and freshest local produce in all his seasonal creations.

At Raging Bull Chophouse & Bar, guests can choose their own ‘weapon’: a selection of knives that they can use to slice the meat. Everything from the Chopping Block is a must-try and is cooked to your preference (medium-rare is the only way to go, of course). While you’re at it, check out the restaurant’s beverage menu. They’ve got over a hundred whiskeys plus a number of bespoke, whiskey-based cocktails.
It never seems proper to have steak without a salad and there’s no way you can ever go wrong with a classic, so don’t be sheepish and order the Caesar Salad (Php 395). The greens are crisp and the salad isn’t swimming in the dressing; a good indication that their vegetables are of great quality. The bacon bits are on the saltier side though it helps in toning down the richness of the dressing.

Its retro-classic interiors, designed by New York-based firm AvroKo Hospitality Group, evoke a nostalgic feel of a 1960s uptown Manhattan residential aesthetic through art of wood and metal craftsmanship.
