There’s something exceedingly graceful about the dining room at Il Ristorante Luca Fantin, something I wasn’t able to experience the other night as I was tucked away at chef’s table (no complaints though). Just seeing the dining room during day light was a treat in itself – the towering windows that gave us a glimpse of the Ginza glitz at night now draw in an abundance of natural light, bringing out all the beautiful details of the space – shimmering chandelier, starched white table clothes, wine glasses light as air. It’s hard not to feel on top of the world when being ushered into somewhere as beautiful as this.

上回來 Il Ristorante Luca Fantin 坐在私密的 “主廚餐桌”,這次再訪則被安排在自然光充足的主用餐區,正好可以好好欣賞一下這個優雅空間的各個細節 – 閃閃發光的水晶燈、雪白的桌布、如空氣般輕盈的酒杯。有種,坐在世界頂端的美妙感。

You’ve already read about chef Luca (left on the picture below) last time, and here’s a short blurb on chef Kirk: he is the head chef at JAAN, where his “Modern British” cuisine has been awarded one Michelin star and ranked #44 on Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants. His perpetually evolving menu embodies a seasonal philosophy to showcase British dining in a refreshing light…and we were about to have a taste of it.

看過上一篇文章的你對 chef Luca 主廚已略有所知,在這裏再簡單介紹一下 chef Kirk:來自德文郡的他將傳統英式料理以新穎的手法來詮釋,善用時令食材創造季節料理;身為新加坡 JAAN 的主廚,他以自己的 “摩登英式料理” 為餐廳收獲了一顆米其林星星以及亞洲50最佳餐廳排名#44。

It might have been the company. I was at dinner with two charming ladies, the three of us seated snugly at Il Ristorante Luca Fantin’s chef’s table right outside the kitchen action – a setting sexy enough to swoon over for. But when I found myself  closing my eyes on the very first bite so I could concentrate on the intricate tangle of tastes and textures in my mouth, I knew that I was in for a wonderful adventure.

可能是當下的氣氛吧。這天晚上,我與兩位迷人的女士一同坐在 Il Ristorante Luca Fantin 的 chef’s table,這張私密的餐桌就在廚房邊上,不僅讓我們能一窺後廚的機密,每道菜完成後更由主廚親自端到我們桌邊並進行介紹 – 完全是美食家夢寐以求的場景。當我吃下第一口料理,我察覺到自己閉上了眼睛以便專注於感受舌尖上的風味變化…我知道,這場晚餐將會是一場奇妙的旅程。

But perhaps, let us back up a few steps and look at this restaurant in its elegant entirety. Il Ristorante Luca Fantin, perched on the 9th floor of the Bvlgari Tower in Ginza, Tokyo, is an unbearably gorgeous dining room  – soaring ceiling, bespoke chandeliers, and towering windows that allows in an abundance of natural light during the day and all the Ginza glitz at night. It is here where chef Luca Fantin, the first Italian chef in Japan to hold a Michelin star, conjures up his magical dishes.

不過讓我們先退後幾步,來看看 Il Ristorante Luca Fantin 這家餐廳的全貌。地點在東京銀座寶格麗大樓的9樓,是個優雅高貴的空間 – 挑高的天花板,別緻的水晶燈,巨大的玻璃窗讓餐廳在白天享有奢侈的自然光,晚間則可以將銀座的繁華盡收眼底。就是在這裡,首位於日本拿到米其林星星的義大利主廚 Luca Fantin 如戲法般炮製出一道又一道的美味料理。

Born in Treviso, Italy, chef Luca arrived in Tokyo in 2009 as Executive Chef at Il Ristorante, to push the boundaries of Italian cuisine in Japan, taking it to levels never reached before. He embarked on a quest for small producers all around Japan, and then utilized these often rare and always precious ingredients to craft dishes that embody the Italian passion for simplicity and the Japanese almost mystical awe of nature’s wonders.

*Prior to Il Ristorante, chef Luca worked at Pergola (3 Michelin stars) in Rome, Cracco in Milan (2 Michelin stars), Mugaritz in San Sebastien (2 Michelin stars), and Ryugin in Tokyo (3 Michelin stars) amongst other prestigious establishments.

Chef Luca 出身於義大利特雷維索(Treviso),2009年受邀成為東京寶格麗 Il Ristorante 餐廳的主廚,決心將日本的義大利餐廳推至前所未有的高度。他開始周遊日本找尋小農,然後用所尋獲的珍稀食材結合自己對義大利料理的熱情以及深厚功力,做出獨特而細膩的創作。

*在來到 Il Ristorante 之前,Chef Luca 曾在羅馬的 Pergola(三星),米蘭的 Cracco(二星),聖塞巴斯蒂安的 Mugaritz(二星),以東京的龍吟(三星)工作過,履歷相當精彩。
