Bvlgari Il Ristorante – Luca Fantin, a one Michelin-starred restaurant, is delivering lunch boxes to medical institutions and hospitals in Tokyo twice weekly.

Since the start of the pandemic, jeweller Bvlgari has been supporting the scientific and medical communities in the fight against the coronavirus. In line with these efforts, Bvlgari Japan and Bvlgari Il Ristorante – Luca Fantin have now joined forces to create lunch boxes for medical personnel in Tokyo who are at the forefront of the battle.

Bvlgari Il Ristorante – Luca Fantin, located in the Bvlgari Hotel in Ginza, ranks 17th on the 2020 list of Asia's 50 Best Restaurants. The restaurant is known for weaving in fine Japanese influences into innovative Italian cuisine.

The menu for the restaurant's lunch box project was created by Executive Chef, Luca Fantin. It consists of healthy and delicious food, such as asparagus salad, aubergine parmigiana and tiramisu tart. The lunch boxes will be delivered twice a week to hospitals and medical institutions that have been designated to fight the virus in Tokyo, Japan.

“We would like to show our respect and gratitude to all the medical personnel who go above and beyond their job responsibilities and continue their enormous effort at the forefront in fighting this pandemic, to protect lives,” Fantin said.

“I prepared a simple Italian menu, mostly composed of seasonal ingredients with high nutritional content that allows them to experience the current season, in line with the principle that we always strive for at the restaurant. We hope that it brightens up their spirits during their busy schedule.”
