Grand Hyatt Tokyo will host a series of luxurious French summer events at The French Kitchen — dubbed Soiree Blanche 2015 — through October (May and June events have already sold out), from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., where guests will be asked to dress all in white. Free-flowing champagne, themed beverages and food from the grill will be offered for ¥10,000 (tax and service charge not included).

Soiree Blanche is a summer event that originated in the 1970s in Saint-Tropez, France, where guests — including many celebrities — enjoyed summer gatherings dressed all in white. Reservations are required and can be made directly with The French Kitchen at 03-4333-8781.

A variety of other summer promotions will be offered through the end of September, with new dishes being introduced at hotel restaurants, including Italian, French, Japanese and Chinese cuisine. At the Italian cafe Fiorentina, new chilled pasta dishes will be served from July 1 to Aug. 31 (11 a.m. to 10 p.m.) There are three choices on the menu: Cappellini with fruit tomatoes and basil; pasta with fresh summer peaches and mozzarella cheese; and sea urchin and caviar pasta, with the first two priced at ¥2,700 and the third at ¥3,300.

Also at the Japanese restaurant Shunbou, natural eel and soft shell turtle from Lake Biwa in Shiga Prefecture will be featured in various dishes, with prices ranging from ¥5,900.

Additionally, the beer garden will be open at The Oak Door from June 1 to Sept. 30, in which guests can choose from a wide range of free-flowing beverages and dishes including barbecued chicken wings and garlic shrimp.

Summer cooking classes will be held at The French Kitchen and The Oak Door, where chef Troy Lee will be conducting a children’s French cooking class on A ug. 2, 16 and 30, for children from 10 years old and above, as well as for adults; and chef A dam Noffsinger will be teaching regional American cuisine monthly through August.
