Camaraderie and opulence: Ricky Razon lures rivals, BFFs to Solaire North bash

Business rivals and friends of ultra bilyonaryo Ricky Razon converged Sunday night in a lavish affair at Quezon City’s latest hotspot, Solaire Resort North.

Prominent among the attendees was Razon’s business partner, First Philippine Holdings chairman and CEO Federico “Piki” Lopez, who was seen hobnobbing with other moguls.

Notably present was Willy Ocier, chairman of Belle Corp., whose City of Dreams competes with Solaire. Ocier enjoyed prime seating at the main table, offering a perfect view of the world-class entertainment. Joining him were Felix Ang, Honorary Consul of Slovenia, and his son Frankie, as well as Piku Uttamchandani, owner of Esquire Financing Group and The Farm.

This illustrious gathering was part of Solaire Resort North’s grand opening festivities, a two-night affair that began with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Saturday night, graced by President Bongbong Marcos and First Lady Liza Araneta Marcos.

The food was served by a battalion of Solaire’s crew, while both foreign and local artists provided stellar entertainment. Performers included Lea Salonga, Martin Nievera, Ryan Cayabyab, the 20-member all-female Japanese dance team Avantgardey, and the American hip-hop dance crew Jabbawockeez.

The culinary offerings crafted by Chef Sebastian Kellerhoff were nothing short of exquisite.

Guests indulged in a menu that included langoustine with blue crab tartare and avocado, and hay-smoked diver scallop adorned with murasaki uni, fennel, kale, and roasted squash velouté.

The feast continued with Kurobuta pork belly accompanied by chicharron, sesame broccolini, sunchoke purée, and pomegranate.

The pièce de résistance was the A5 Wagyu tenderloin, complemented by tempura asparagus, maitake mushrooms, beetroot dust, potato pavé, and bordelaise.

To cap off the gastronomic journey, a coconut Sampaguita sphere with passionfruit and caramelized nuts provided a delightful finale.
