Antonio’s: Insider Tips and Stops for the Millennial

For the bucket list

Of course, Antonio’s will always be known for being the original fine dining restaurant. And while the success of Balay Dako and Breakfast and Antonio’s are indisputable, the experience at Antonio’s itself is one to put on the bucket list. White, black, wood, and royal purple fuse European refinement with the charm of an old Filipino house. Even though the restaurant has expanded over the past years, the style still remains distinct and graced — with good assurance, as everything from food suppliers to furniture pieces to plants and trees are handpicked by Chef Tony Boy Escalante himself.
