The Michelin Guide has consistently awarded more stars to Tokyo dining establishments than any other city in the world. I created this blog as my personal Tokyo restaurant guide, but I hope you will also enjoy reading it.

Forty Five, Roppongi フォーティーファイブ 六本木

Being situated as it is on the lobby floor of the Ritz Carlton on the 45th floor of a tower in the Tokyo Midtown development, this restaurant is aptly named. The views of Tokyo are amazing and the service is extremely attentive, even though the waitstaff seemed kind of nervous with their English. I tried the 5,000 yen lunch set (which is their cheapest) on a recent business lunch meeting and came away extremely impressed. I had a prosciutto and endive salad to start and this was followed by a small half lobster on linguine and then a small pear sorbet topped with a burnt caramel foam. All ingredients were of the utmost freshness, which is something about which you can really tell the difference. But the best thing is that the maitre d'hotel gave us two glasses of Dom Perignon on the house. I'm sure that free champers will turn out to be quite expensive for me in the long run as I am sure to be back!

I agree with your assessment of the restaurant. The view is spectacular, and with the high ceiling and balanced lighting, it is an enjoyable experience overall.
