(SPOT.ph) If you’re familiar with Borough’s old branch at The Podium—who could forget their cult-favorite milk and cookies?—you’ll be surprised to walk into their newest location in Bonifacio Global City. It has a whole different feel, which strays away from the moody, pub-like atmosphere it was originally known for.

Now, the restaurant looks more polished, playing up the trendy New York City vibe quite nicely. Though the space is smaller than the original branch, the feel is bright, light, and airy, from the white marble tabletops to the refreshing green brick walls. The space’s high and exposed ceiling showcases industrial beams and ductwork, plus a light fixture made of repurposed wood that shadows over the counter.
Even Borough’s menu has undergone a noticeable makeover. “We tried to keep our more popular items and just freshened up the menu,” shares Chef Cuit Kaufman. A true-blue New Yorker, the chef added more dishes that he grew up with, and the melting pot of cuisines that is New York City was his inspiration.

Borough fans don’t need to worry much about these changes because the restaurant has kept their ever-popular Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup (P320) on the menu. After all, no one can resist the gooey cheddar and mozzarella cheese sandwiched between two fluffy brioche buns, which also come with a good serving of creamy and tangy tomato soup—the comfort meal of all comfort meals.
