French cuisine to enjoy with wine

A French restaurant nestled in a relaxing area near Shinobazu Pond. The selection of wines selected by owner and sommelier Keisuke Kondo numbers more than 150 from those of valuable vintages to more affordable ones. A course of the chef's selections is ¥7800. The main dishes of this day featured flavors of spring from butterbur sprouts (Fukinoto) and lamb baked in a pie wrap. The lamb with its flavorful sauce becomes one as it spreads in your mouth while you chew.

Special, nostalgic "Japanese Western-style cuisine"
Sakurai specialty Western-style cuisine

For two years in a row, this Western-style restaurant was selected by Michelin Guide Tokyo as a Bib Gourmand. This menu of dishes that are somehow nostalgic is impressively tasty because they are prepared with great care. The popular rice omelette is made with brown rice cooked in bouillon and a blend of three types of white rice that together have a unique texture. Then the fluffy egg is topped with a demiglace sauce that was stewed for three weeks.
