Tateru Yoshino Ginza
PIAS GINZA 12F. 4-8-10,
This is another French restaurant with a Japanese touch worth trying. There are a few Tateru Yoshino restaurants in Tokyo but the Ginza branch has the grandest decor. Three of Tateru Yoshino’s restaurants in Tokyo received Michelin stars last year, the Ginza branch received one star.
It is located on the 12th floor of the Pias Ginza building, just behind the Mitsukoshi Department store in Ginza. The restaurant manager speaks good english which is very helpful since you will be guessing the menu unless you speak French.
I will let the aesthetically pleasing and carefully prepared dishes speak for themselves through these pictures …
Langoustine with caviar
Tomato stuffed with green pepper jelly and caviar
Slightly smoked beef with grilled mushrooms in morel cream
Roasted turbot and crayfish
Grilled steak with mustard cream
Compote a la rose dessert
To summon things up, I thought the food was deliciously light and fresh. The beef was the most memorable part of the meal for me, perfectly done with just the right amount of crispness on the outer parts and delicate softness inside. It was also the perfect size. Tateru Yoshino Ginza is definitely worth a try.
