Vin Chou

At Vin Chou (which they rhyme with "banjo"), the chicken of preference is prime Date-jidori, one of the finest, most flavorful varieties of Japanese fowl. Rather more unusually, though, the menu also offers Bresse chicken wings, quail, cuts of Barbary duck and halves of squab, all flown in direct from Europe, from the same farms that supply some of the top French restaurants. Grilled over Bincho charcoal and anointed only with a sprinkle of sea salt or a simple soy-based tare dipping sauce, this prime yakitori is why Vin Chou has become a regular port of call for connoisseurs.

In line with the nationwide state of emergency declared on April 16, the government is strongly requesting that residents stay at home whenever possible and refrain from visiting bars, restaurants, music venues and other public spaces.
