ICYMI: You can now enjoy your favorites at Antonio’s without having to go to Tagaytay. 

The much-loved restaurant recently opened a branch in Manila through a special tie-up with luxury car dealership PGA Cars. It has started accepting reservations for lunch and dinner from Tuesdays to Sundays at its new Manila spot, complete with a lounge bar and bistro. 

“For the past 20 years, Antonio’s Tagaytay has been welcoming you through its doors with its gracious, accommodating service and its unforgettable, soulful dishes. The idyllic place has become the perfect setting for celebrating milestones and creating new ones,” the management said. “This time, we are creating our own milestone by bringing the Antonio’s experience to a new city—to a modern, contemporary space at PGA Cars.” 

Unlike the Tagaytay branch’s chilly atmosphere surrounded by nature, this one is nestled in bustling EDSA, so you can expect a much different feel when you dine in, but with the same delicious food. Included in the mezzanine menu are Dry-Aged Steak Tartare (P960), Escargots de Bourgogne (P650), Akaroa Salmon Gravlax (P600), Roasted Veal Bone Marrow (P890), and Fish Quenelle (P750). 

Entrees include 15 Days Dry-Aged English Dingley Dell Pork Striploin (P2,300), Cola Spice Glazed Rack of Lamb (P3,400), and Grilled Chilean Sea Bass (P2,250). Of course, it wouldn't be complete without dry-aged steaks like Porterhouse (P950/100 grams), T-Bone (P875/100 grams), and Bone-In Ribeye (P1,050/100 grams) with two side dishes of your choice.

If you’re looking for something light, you can have salads like the Burrata Caprese Strawberry Salad (P550), Tuna Confit Salad (P480), and Fennel and Yoghurt Salad (P340) as well as soups like French Onion Soup (P600) and Sunchoke Veloute Soup (P480). There are also cold cuts with all meat (Jamon Serrano, Chorizo Pamplona, and Fuet Catalan) for P800 and all cheese (Brie de Meaux, Bleu d’Auvergne, Stilton Gregorian, Grana Padano, and Aged Cheddar) for P680.

For the sweet tooth, you can have desserts like Warm Seasonal Fruit Crumble (P550), Chocolat Pot De Crème (P450), and Baba Au Rhum (P550). There are also ice cream offerings priced at P250 each, with variants like Roasted Strawberry, Non-Dairy Bittersweet Chocolate, Banana with Caramelized White Chocolate, Caramel Macchiato, among others. 

The lounge bar menu consists of other delicious delights like Cheeseburger Sliders (P900), US Beef Tripe Salpicao (P750), and Pate De Foie Gras (P890). Featured classic cocktails include Scofflaw, Laphroaig Project, Gibson, Breakfast Martini, Amaretto Sour, French 75, Espresso Martini, Rum Old Fashioned, Lychee Martini, and Paloma priced at P500 each.
