Excerpt review: Chef Koji Sato has managed the culinary transition from Portugal to Spain with aplomb. As at his other restaurant, the cooking is confident and full flavored. He doesn’t stint on the Iberico ham in his croquettes. He makes a fine version of albondigas ...

[Sponsored] Back in 2014, when BLT Steak launched a branch in Roppongi’s Izumi Garden Tower, there was plenty of hype and big expectations for the Tokyo debut of a modern American steakhouse boasting a flagship in midtown Manhattan. BLT Steak Roppongi did not disappoint. Together ...

Thank goodness for Shinya Sakurai. In the year since he opened his elegant boutique-plus-tearoom in the backstreets of Nishi-Azabu, it has become one of the city’s great resources for all things ocha (tea). Its official name is Souen, but it is the English subtitle ...

Review except: Yujiro Takahashi is a bright new star in Tokyo’s gastronomic sky. He first rose above the horizon as head chef of the excellent Le Jeu de l’Assiette in Tokyo’s Ebisu-Nishi neighborhood, where he retained the restaurant’s Michelin star for the five years ...

The Oak Door, Grand Hyatt Tokyo’s steakhouse, is again hosting its popular Summer Beer Garden, offering all-you-can-drink draft beer and other beverages, as well as all-you-can-eat food items, through Sept. 30. For evening gatherings in the summer months, The Oak Door’s terrace beer garden is ...

One of The Outback's most popular menu items for weekend and holiday dinners is the prime rib set. The prime rib is slowly roasted at low heat and served in a thick cut, allowing customers to enjoy authentic, juicy American-style roast beef. To satisfy even ...

Located on one of the most iconic and strategic corners in the heart of Roppongi, the New York-style restaurant Wall Street Cafe & Bar offers customers a variety of savory dishes and drinks. Its two cozy floors, furnished in black and red, provide great views ...

Bright, friendly and spotlessly clean, Malins is little bigger than a hole-in-the-wall. You head to the hatch at the back, order and pay, then wait for your food to arrive. Although there is some simple seating on high stools out front, this is certainly ...

The delicate hot broth is made with chicken, fish and konbu seaweed, the noodles are light and they are served with half an ajitama egg, slices of freshly grilled chashu pork and a garnish of fragrant yuzu peel. It's just as much a classic ...

The menu at Shonzui, chalked on a huge blackboard in the cheerfully cramped dining room, includes a generous charcuterie platter built around homemade pates and terrines, stick-to-your-ribs cassoulet and massive wagyu steaks as thick as phone directories. Needless to say, red is the predominant ...

Inside and out, they've created a rustic retreat in the heart of the city. Cucina Tredici Aprile is simple and casual, but it's a proper little restaurant (and certainly not a trattoria). Hidaka spent a year in Sicily, and the Mediterranean influences are strong, ...

If you're into assigning genres, then call it a high-tech teppanyaki grill -- albeit one that's been sprinkled with a liberal dose of magic dust. Dining there takes you to an entirely different, parallel universe from the standard teppan fare popularized by the likes ...

Serious, formal and precise, Japanese cuisine at this level is much like classical music. Just as the score for a symphony is already written, the parameters of a kaiseki meal are fixed, and any variations in nuance tend to be subtle. Where Shichi Jyu Ni Kou stands out ...

Roppongi Nouen is one place where you can trace what you’re eating right back to the very source, and even look at photos of the farmers’ faces and fields. Drop in on the right day and you might get the chance to meet them ...

There are five compelling reasons for making your way to this casual, unprepossessing, glass-fronted hangout on the Hiroo side of Roppongi. You will find them being dispensed from the gleaming taps that adorn the small bar just inside the front door.
