There’s only one proper way to mark an anniversary, and that’s with a celebratory dinner. Especially if it’s a big round milestone year. And that is exactly what went down last week at the highly auspicious 10th birthday of Il Ristorante Luca Fantin.

Much has happened in the decade since Fantin first arrived to take the helm here in Bvlgari’s then newly opened Ginza Tower. During that time he has won and retained a Michelin star every year since 2011 — and rightfully should already have a second. He was named “Best Italian Chef in the World” by food journalists from his homeland. And Il Ristorante is now making its way up the glittering ladder of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants.

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
