To coincide with the time of year when nature demonstrates its beauty in a way that symbolizes harvest, prosperity and abundance, Grand Hyatt Tokyo in Roppongi, which is marking its 10th anniversary this year, has added some special fall promotions to its hotel-wide birthday celebrations.

The hotel’s all-day dining French Kitchen offers authentic French dishes featuring an open kitchen, a bar, an outside terrace and a private dining room equipped with its own kitchen. It’s the perfect room for any occasion. On Oct. 26 and 27, the restaurant will feature a special Halloween Brunch with seasonal pumpkin dishes and signature favorites, which will be available at ¥6,500 per adult, ¥2,450 per child ages 6 to 12 and ¥1,700 per infant ages 4 to 5. And children will receive candy treats.

Also, from Nov. 1 to 10, the restaurant will welcome special guest chef Frederic Vardon from Le39V restaurant in Paris, which was awarded a star in the 2012 Michelin Guide. Vardon is also chef of ZINC OPERA, a Parisian bistro awarded a Bib Gourmand (good cuisine at a reasonable price) in the 2013 Michelin Guide. Chef Vardon is a rising star on France’s gastronomic scene and has worked under the guidance of renowned chef Alain Ducasse. A specialist in traditional bistro cuisine, Vardon will demonstrate his artistry in French gastronomy with a promise to “transport diners to Paris.”

At the Fiorentina Pastry Boutique, customers can choose from 30 kinds of hotel-made pastries, including award-winning cakes created by Masaki Okazaki, who was crowned winner of Mondial Des Arts Sucrés 2012 in Paris, and other sweets made with carefully selected ingredients. Through November, some special cakes featuring fresh autumn ingredients such as chestnut tarts (¥650), pumpkin pudding (¥900) and fig poundcake (¥2,300) are available. Also, Halloween desserts, including chocolate jack-O’-lanterns, cookies in an assortment of Halloween shapes, pumpkin tarts and puddings will be on sale.

The hotel’s main bar, the luxurious Maduro, offers nightly live entertainment, and an extensive collection of cigars and beverages to accompany its evening snack menu. With a discreet location and intimate atmosphere, this is the ideal place to enjoy some special seasonal cocktails. From Oct. 27 to Nov. 2, three kinds of Halloween cocktails mixed with pumpkin and sweet-potato puree will be offered from ¥1,800 to delight customers with a sweet tooth. And from Nov. 3 to 30, three autumn harvest cocktails — grape mojito, apple martini and fig daiquiri (¥1,900 each) — will be shaken to stir you.
