It’s not a place you’d easily miss, with sleek black-and-white interiors, elegant furniture, shiny light fixtures, and stylish wall accents. It might even make you think of the sort of café they’d have in the movies—you know, the kind where the girl bumps into the guy and maybe accidentally spills some coffee on him. But it’s right in the middle of the busy Makati business district, and it’s just the kind of place you’d want to have coffee in every single day, guy or no guy.

“The vibe is like New York-chic, café-restaurant. The reason behind that is because before my mom got into the restaurant business, she was a fashion designer,” shares Nicole Thorp, who helps manage family-run NIC’S.

NIC’S started as a commissary in 2001 and evolved into a full-fledged restaurant a few years down the road, with their first branch at UP Town Center. In November 2018, they opened a second outpost at Ayala Center’s Park Terraces in Makati. “There are a lot of recipes that my mom used to do when she lived in New York with her now-late sister, and a lot from our travels. She replicates it and makes it her own,” Thorp shares, explaining the restaurant’s Filipino-European cuisine.
