Steaks, freshly cooked right outside your house

WITH restaurants still in limbo due to the reimposition of the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ — only until Friday, but who knows?), it’s still possible to have a treat from Wolfgang’s Steakhouse.

At present, Wolfgang’s branches in Bonifacio Global City (BGC), The Podium, and Resorts World are only open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., with operations restricted to delivery and pickup services — which brings us to their new program, Wolfgang’s Curbside.

The program allows customers to book a desired timeslot (from 10 a.m. until 8:30 p.m.), and the steaks are delivered at that time, cooked outside one’s home, and served (plated nicely too). The dinnerware will be collected either within the day or the next.

The service has a P10,000 minimum consumable on food and drink. The minimum isn’t as hard to attain when the set menu for four (grilled salmon, a one-kilo USDA prime dry-aged porterhouse steak, and a 900-gram USDA prime dry-aged ribeye steak as the star, with an appetizer, four sides, and two desserts) costs P20,988.

“We offer a similar version of our All-day Menu from appetizers to entrees to desserts. The curbside menu is more compact though since this is still a delivery service and we do not want to compromise the quality of our food,” said Paula Maravilla, Marketing Officer for Wolfgang’s in an e-mail to BusinessWorld. Other menu items available include seafood, sandwiches, and cocktails.

This follows on the tails of last year’s programs, which had steaks that you can prepare yourself, and even one where a chef comes up and cooks the steaks in your kitchen. These are still available, according to Ms. Maravilla. Another program costs P30,000 minimum, and is accompanied by table setting, dinnerware, and waitstaff (if one chooses, since no-contact, standard, and premium packages are available).

“The concept of curbside delivery comes from our ultimate desire to deliver freshly broiled steaks right at your doorstep. You don’t need a party nor an extra special occasion to have steak, our USDA prime dry-aged steaks are available anytime, any day,” said Ms. Maravilla. “We want to maintain the quality of the steaks, that they are able to have the same Wolfgang experience without having the need to go outside their homes.”

Ms. Maravilla reflects on what a year and a half has done to their restaurant — and how good steak serves as a balm during these times.

“It has been quite a challenging year and a half but we manage to keep moving forward because we believe being able to come together, to eat and share good food, is still one of the best things life has to offer,” she said. “While the pandemic continues to affect everyday life, our approach towards this is to give a sense of balance, comfort or normalcy during these trying times. And like any other Filipino family, we love and enjoy eating. We still want Filipino families to celebrate a momentous occasion, no matter big or small.”
