Despite having opened an impressive
15 restaurants in the past five years,
Jason Atherton shows no sign of
slowing down. After extending his
thriving London-based restaurant
empire to cities around the world,
he’s ready for his next act.
The Michelin-starred chef and
his Cebu-born wife Irha have
collaborated on their company’s
latest venture – The Pig & Palm.
Set for an imminent opening in the
MSY Tower at Cebu Business Park,
the restaurant will offer a taste of
contemporary Spanish gastronomy
with a menu that features pig-based
dishes using locally-sourced pork.
Designed by Shanghai-based
studio Neri & Hu, the design concept
was inspired by Cebu’s colonial
past. The main dining room contains
lush greenery and patterned gray
bricks, while the bar area
features stained glass
infills andwood-
paneled alcoves.
