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.

Le Garçon de la Vigne, Hiroo ル ギャルソン ドゥ ラ ヴィーニュ 広尾

You might be forgiven for thinking that I have a preference for French restaurants since I have written about so many on my blog. Well it's not quite true but we are so spoiled for choice in Tokyo. My latest subject is a restaurant in the Hiroo shopping street that I have been to several times. It is a small restaurant situated on the lower ground floor and decorated in an authentic French style. On my last visit I had a prawn cocktail for entree. It was so much better than it sounds if you're used to those 70's style prawn cocktails with thousand island sauce. This one consisted of some delicious prawns served with fresh daikon, avocado and a light mustard sauce. I had oysters baked with a light Hollandaise style sauce for my main. Both the prawns and the oysters were fresh and therefore delicious. They are open for lunch and the food is always decent. If you are looking for a nice unpretentious French meal in Hiroo with brisk service you could not go past Le Garçon de la Vigne once in while. Because the tables are very close together I would tend to recommend it less for business than pleasure.
