Watch the constantly-changing scenery
of the metropolis,
as you enjoy the supreme culinary combination
of Milan and Tokyo produced
from genius of two great chefs.
Antica Osteria del Ponte in Milan was only the second restaurant in Italy to receive three stars from France's Michelin guide, the world's most authoritative guide on cuisine, and Tokyo is home to the restaurant's only branch location.
On the 36th floor of the Marunouchi Building, diners get a taste of gastronomic excellence as they gaze over the cityscape from 180 metres up, in the recipes the chef learned in the kitchens of the original restaurant. The restaurant is the ideal in elaborate elegance, even down to the furnishings.
In English the restaurant's name means, "The Old Tavern at the end of the Bridge" and the home restaurant near Milan can found in just such a location, where it was first opened by Ezio Santin when he was 39 years old.
As a chef, he was a late bloomer, but his deep curiosity and natural genius made his restaurant famous - a destination for gourmands from around the world.
Chef Stefano Dal Moro practices his craft at the Tokyo location. After learning classic examples of local cuisine in his hometown of Venice, he went on to three-star restaurants in France where he learned the secrets of creative Italian cuisine.
Ten years after opening the Tokyo branch, he continues to use techniques from both styles to create masterful flavours.
That extraordinary genius has managed to refine Japanese ingredients into finest of Italian cuisine.
Dal Moro's fluent Japanese allows him to visit producers around the country in his quest for Japan's best ingredients - showing that his curiosity matches that of Santin himself.
The genius of these two great chefs results in the finest Italian cuisine. But tasting is believing...
