Espina: An exquisite resto-A A +A
Monday, October 14, 2013
EXQUISITE! Fine dining with a varied selection of “a la carte” cuisines. “For any class of gourmet and food enthusiasts.” “Special but Affordable!” Very enticing branding, indeed!
Casa Amparito was launched recently and gathered about 300 friends of Consul Michel and Amparito Lhuillier. The former Pino restaurant was re-invented with beautiful fixtures, wider dining area and well-trained service brigade, mostly hotel and restaurant management-tourism graduates of the Amparito L. Lhuillier scholarship program, led by chef Dino Guingona and general manager Marina Codina.
On Fridays, a cozy dining space, a piano bar, is reserved for those who wish to listen to beautiful music. Amparito is hands-on in keeping the quality and service of her pet project.
Casa Amparito is now open for business, weekdays and weekends. It is at Wilson St., Lahug. Catch its flavor and gaiety!

SP Communication Tips
The following verbs remain the same whether they are in the present or past tenses: cut, put, quit, broadcast, read (although pronunciation changes). Commonly mispronounced words: subpoena, leopard, jeopardy (where “o” is silent). Be sure you don’t interchange the pronunciation of “corps” (silent “ps”) and “corpse” (silent “e”). Imagine, if you say, “Friends, let us welcome the diplomatic corpse!”
