The unique spoon and fork sculptures act as a marker for this teppan-yaki restaurant near Higashi-Ginza Station, while inside, a painting of a woman in a red dress grabs your attention. The French Bell-Époque-style interior décor fits well with the building which served as the main house of a wealthy farmer, before being relocated from Tokamachi in Niigata, a prefecture on the rural Sea of Japan coast. The mosaic near the counter represents the depths of the sea while lamps by Daum Freres, chandelier by Muller Freres, Baccarat glassware and other adornments are the finishing touches of a truly luxuriant atmosphere.
In addition to black-haired cattle bred on a designated farm in Tottori, beef from Miyagi and Iwate is used. As well as meat, a speciality dish of abalone sourced from a small fishing port in Aomori and steamed in rock salt is delicious. There are also options that make the best of seasonal ingredients, such as the truffle course in winter.
