“GENTLE,” a Restaurant in Tokyo’s Omotesando Where You Can Enjoy Italian Cuisine and SushiRead Later
A restaurant serving Italian cuisine and sushi opened in Omotesando in July of 2019. I’ve visited the restaurant and found a lot of great points to recommend it based on, including the food and the restaurant’s atmosphere, so I’ll be introducing the restaurant in this article.
The historic western-style restaurant first opened in 1903 alongside Hibiya Park. The park’s fountain is located just in front of the restaurant, and it’s also close to the Imperial Palace, so it’s a great place to visit while walking through the area.
The popular yoshoku (western-style food) restaurant Mon-ami serves hamburger steaks made with Kobe beef, the pride and joy of Hyogo Prefecture. This enormous hamburger has even been featured on TV. I decided to stop by for lunch, so I’ll be introducing my experience here!
I recently had lunch at Heinz Beck, a restaurant that was awarded 1 Michelin star, located near the Imperial Palace in Tokyo. Chef Heinz Beck, from Rome's La Pergola, winner of 3 Michelin stars for 12 consecutive years, is a master in the world of gastronomy. Now his first fine dining establishment has opened in Tokyo!
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.
At Sabatini di Firenze Tokyo, a venerable old Italian restaurant in Japan's capital, I recently enjoyed their "Winter Afternoon Lunch". It's only available during this season.
My lunch this time was a BISTRO MARX on the 7th floor of the GINZA PLACE building.
This is the world’s first branch of the Grand Bistro, supervised by Thierry Marx, head chef of 2-star Paris restaurants. Here you can enjoy Marx-styled French cuisine themed after “a fusion of cooking and bread” for a reasonable price.
In Isahaya City, Nagasaki Prefecture, there is a spot that is popular with women. Called "Kaze-no-Mori Garden", it's a collection of unique and fashionable shops. Among those is Amelie, a restaurant serving excellent crêpes. Upon hearing this, I headed out there!
