A Trip from Casual to Elegant

17 06 2014

Went out with a French-American couple friends living in Tokyo last night.  I was asked to pick a restaurant so I chose this but it turned out that the restaurant part of the establishment was closed for a private function so we decided to go to its “wine bar” section where you can get the same food served in the restaurant.

When I arrived my friends were already there and I also realized that it was a “smoking” bar with the group sitting next to us smoking away.

We considered staying by moving tables but decided after one drink to change locations.  The smoke bothered me a lot and my friend was eight-month pregnant.

We settled on another French restaurant nearby to which my friends had been and which I did not know about.

It is very inconspicuously located on the second floor of a fashion complex in one of the back alleys of Omotesando.

I was pleasantly surprised for the restaurant’s contemporary elegance and beauty with attentive but subtle service.

And the food was lovely.
