NAMIKI667 is a restaurant located on the third floor of the Hyatt Centric Hotel. It gets its name from namiki, the line of trees along Ginza Namiki Dori in front of the hotel. Using the freshest seasonal ingredients, "creative cooking", overflowing with originality, can be eaten here. I visited this place for lunch.

One thing that brings to mind the upcoming "Golden Week" (from the end of April through the first week of May) is Niku-Fes, a major food entertainment event. While this popular event always takes place somewhere in Japan, it will be held simultaneously during this year's Golden Week in both Tokyo and Osaka.
“Hotel New Otani Tokyo” is a famous hotel with around 400 years of history that also features a Japanese garden. Right now it is hosting an event titled “Sandwich & Sweets Buffet ~Strawberry Sweets~”!
I recently had lunch at Ginza Kashiwa, a restaurant that opened in April of 2018. Here, diners can enjoy Hinai-Jidori, a premium brand of chicken from Akita Prefecture. It's considered one of the three tastiest varieties of chicken in Japan!
As its name suggests, BUTAMAJIN Ikebukuro is a Tokyo restaurant specializing in Yakiniku, or grilled pork, since BUTA means "pork" in Japanese.
However, since the owner wished that people who eat meat and those who don't could gather around the same table, this is the first Yakiniku restaurant in Japan to offer a menu that's 1/3 vegetarian!
