There are many benefits of having a neighborhood community. We can share information about what is happening, get recommendations about home maintenance services, organize hobby group activities, order goods in bulk and so on. For residents of Bonifacio Global City, we have an additional reason to join a neighborhood group like E.Q.U.I.P@BGC, because it is supported by the estate management entities of BGC.
Fort Bonifacio Development Corp, which markets BGC and manages BGC in conjunction with its affiliated company BESC, invites members of E.Q.U.I.P@BGC to attend marketing activities of its commercial partners from time to time, which often means freebies like lunch or dinner.
On March 14, 2019, we were invited to a lunch hosted by the recently opened Chateau 1771 restaurant, located on the second floor of One Bonifacio High Street mall.
Chateau 1771 is an established fine dining European restaurant first opened in Malate, Manila, in 1988.

The food was delicious. There were scallops with cheese, chicken boncoccini with marsala sauce, fettucine with light lemon cream sauce, among the many dishes.
Smoked gindara carpaccio (like raw tangigue) and four seasons salad were the appetizers that the restaurant showcased. We also had a chance to taste desserts like meringue with lemon custard, and valrhona ganache tarte.
It was a great occasion to taste exquisite food courtesy of Chateau 1771 and arranged by FBDC, and for us neighbors to catch up with other neighbors we met before as well as network with new friends.
