T'astous, Minami Azabu タストゥー 南麻布

T'astous is a new French restaurant near Sannohashi in Minami Azabu with a cool fitout and friendly, professional staff. The chef also knows his way around the kitchen.

They offer a relatively reasonably priced course menu of two entrees, a main and dessert or one entree and two mains as well as and a flight of 3, 4 or 5 'degustation' wines although, of course, you can order from the wine list if you would like.

Very enjoyable.

Sanma and caviar

Egg, bacon and lentil 'salad'

Dazzle, Ginza レストランダズル 銀座

It would be fair to say I went through a distinct Dazzle phase about five years ago. I must have gone there about three of four times, for business and for pleasure. Then I stopped for some reason. Not sure why. Silly me. The establishment is well located in the heart of Ginza at the top of the distinctive Mikimoto Building, with really good food, relatively reasonable prices and a dose of glam.

This magnificent lunch was all of 8,000 yen for two people including two glasses of bubbly. Not bad going at all, in my opinion.
