Upgraded Caramelo, pastry shop at Cerulean; Hokkaido fair at Tokyo Dome Hotel

Cerulean private room, new sweets

The Cerulean Tower Tokyu Hotel’s Caramelo restaurant and its pastry shop, both on the lobby floor, have been renovated and reopened from Sept. 1.

Standing tall near Shibuya Station, an area that seems to be ever-changing, the hotel’s international restaurant and pastry shop were redesigned and upgraded for the hotel’s 12th anniversary.

The new private room at Caramelo provides a space for business meetings, family gatherings or other parties.

Two kinds of special plans for private dining are on offer. A big plate-party plan features a range of items from the chefs’ recommended menu served on large dishes for sharing. The other plan features the hotel’s popular New Zealand steak.

Each plan is available at ¥5,000 per person including one drink, tax and a service charge.

At the pastry shop, desserts made by Laurent Jeannin, a renowned French pâtissier who works at Hôtel Le Bristol Paris, are available.

The Cerulean Tower Tokyu Hotel is a 5-minute walk from the West Exit of Shibuya Station. For more information or reservations, call 03-3476-3431 or visit www.ceruleantower-hotel.com .

Tokyo Dome Hotel’s Hokkaido fair

Autumn is the season to enjoy the harvest, and from Oct. 1 the Tokyo Dome Hotel will hold one of its popular events, a Hokkaido cuisine fair throughout its restaurants, supported by the Hokkaido Government.

Hokkaido is known for its bounty from land and sea. Chefs at the hotel’s restaurants visited Hokkaido to find quality produce at farms and markets, bringing those products back to Tokyo to prepare original dishes.

A buffet featuring a variety of Hokkaido gourmet items is available at Rilassa, and a lunch buffet will be available at The Artist’s Café. The French restaurant Deux Mil will offer a special prix fixe course during lunch and dinner.

Also, from Oct. 1 to 6, a fair themed on the Tokachi district of southeastern Hokkaido will be held at Rilassa. Customers can enjoy dishes made from Tokachi specialties such as potatoes, mushrooms, pork and milk.

The Tokyo Dome Hotel is a 2-minute walk from Suidobashi Station (Mita and Sobu lines), or a 5-minute walk from Korakuen and Kasuga stations (various lines). For more information or reservations, call 03-5805-2111 or visit www.tokyodome-hotels.co.jp .
