Bars and Restaurants
Long before latte art and aeropresses arrived in Tokyo, there was a thriving culture of kissaten, cozy and smoke-filled coffee shops. Most have disappeared, but l'Ambre (founded 1948) shows no sign of fading away. That's thanks to centenarian owner Ichiro Sekiguchi and his devotion to his premium coffee beans, some of which he ages for decades.
Joël Robuchon is the eponymous restaurant from world-renowned chef Joël Robuchon, who owns numerous successful ventures around the world. Robuchon offers an outstanding take on modern french cuisine. The restaurant offers several set menus, along with an excellent selection of à la carte options. Be sure to save room for the delicious Kyoho grape mochi with fresh almond ice cream, soya milk and honey coulis.
