Raintree Hospitality Group opens new ecotherapy restaurant “The Farmer’s Table” at Nurture Wellness
By TEAM ORANGE May 1, 2021
Good health is one of the biggest priorities for everyone, especially during these trying times. With this in mind, the company behind some of the best names in the food & beverage industry decided to launch their own take on ecotherapy dining.
Raintree Hospitality Group, the name behind favorite restaurants such as Saboten, Providore, and Chotto Matte, recently opened their first restaurant in Tagaytay City called the Farmer’s Table. The project was developed with the support from wellness advocate Cathy Brillantes Turvill, owner of Nurture Wellness Village.
Located inside Tagaytay’s premier spa and wellness center, the Farmer’s Table is Raintree Hospitality’s answer to the stresses of living through a pandemic. According to the hospitality group’s president, Ms. Annabella Wisniewski, it was a unique opportunity they didn’t want to miss.
“We saw a unique opportunity and took it,” Ms. Wisniewski shared. “It became more meaningful during the pandemic as we are able to help alleviate the plight of many struggling people through job creation and at the same time help lift the low morale of the community through a new and vibrant project.”
The al fresco restaurant is a must-try escape from city living, featuring only the freshest vegetables and herbs from Nurture Farmacy, the wellness center’s very own organic farm. The owners shared that the restaurant is their own way of living the locavore way, focusing on fresh and sustainable produce that’s not just good for the body but also for the mind.
Aside from deliciously healthy dishes created by seasoned corporate chef and restaurateur Kalel Chan, the Farmer’s Table also aims to support neighboring farmers and suppliers to help boost the local economy.
“We wanted to highlight all of the ingredients grown at the farm as well as the products from surrounding areas such as beef and seafood from Batangas, coffee and longganisa from Amadeo next door, and a local brewery named Monkey Eagle located very near our restaurant,” explains Mr. Martin Wisniewski, vice president of the Raintree Hospitality Group.
The Farmer’s Table is divided into three sections: the Boutique Market, which serves local delicacies, Nurture Wellness signature products, and the weekend pop-up store for the freshest fruits and vegetables from the local area; the Artisanal Baker, which offers freshly made breads and pastries, as well as a coffee and juice bar; and the Garden Bistro, which houses the main dining hall and events garden terrace – the perfect venue for intimate celebrations and small gatherings or meetings away from the hustle and bustle of Metro Manila.
Diners and shoppers at the Farmer’s Table will experience the best that nature has to offer with their extensive menu filled with uniquely delicious fare, like their highly recommended Hothouse Cauliflower & Broccoli served Buffalo-style, their signature Mr. Jones Tapa, stone-fired pizza, and Banana Hazelnut French Toast with Peanut Brittle and Fresh Cream. They also have their own twists to Tagaytay favorites like Bulalo and Fried Tawilis, as well as vegan-friendly options like their Caesar Salad and Plant-based Burger.
If you’re itching to travel safely outside Metro Manila, the Farmer’s Table will give you more reasons to escape the city.
“We knew a lot of our guests from our Manila restaurants could not travel abroad or even to farther provinces, so we thought this would be the perfect al fresco, pandemic-friendly kind of place. Tagaytay is close enough to Metro Manila to travel for the day or the weekend where most city dwellers could get much needed breathing space and indulge in tasty, fresh food,” says Mr. Wisniewski.
The Farmer’s Table is open daily from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. It is located at Nurture Wellness Village, Pulong Sagingan, Barangay Maitim II, West Cavite, Tagaytay City. For inquiries and reservations, please contact +63 905 387 7993, 0960 928 3142 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
