Les Rendezvous de Tokyo, Nishi Azabu
Manned by a beautiful, bubbly hostess and a talented galley-slave chef, dining at Les Rendezvous is a completely engaging experience. If you should be fortunate enough to pay a visit you need do little more than sit back and enjoy the show (well, you will also have to eat).
On a recent evening visit, my dining partner and I were treated to a delicious meal as well as a selection of paired, generously poured Australian wines. French food and Australian wine? Yes a little bit unique but, patriotically speaking, I have no objections.
For a little over 7,000 yen you can sample the degustation menu. The chef's selection is changed each month, but if you like you can switch out the courses with anything else on the menu - which my dining partner and I did. The cooking is uniformly good and as good as the service.
I would definitely recommend you try them out soon!
Amuse of kibina and daikon seeds. So fresh and delicious.
Herbed olive oil
Terrine of white cheese and capsicum suits the warmer weather well.
Foie gras with asparagus - was not too heavy at all.
This minimalist bouillabaisse had maximalist flavours.
Lamb with bok choy added a bit of an Asian touch.
Cheese platter was generous and delicious.
Excellent fondant chocolat with pistachio ice-cream
My dining partner's nougat was as good as it looks.
