Lakeside authentic French

Virbius may be slightly out of the way in Mitaka. But it's only 5 minutes by foot from the station and offers such a relaxing environment that you feel you've escaped to a bistro in the French countryside.
Lush greenery and a tranquil lake can be viewed from the windows and you half expect the sounds of nature to entertain you as you dine. This sense of peace and relaxation is deepened by the gentle manners of soft-spoken chef Yukinori Akamatsu. He is casual and down to earth despite having polished his skills at Tokyo's acclaimed Kitajima-tei and three-star restaurants in France. Even young guests nervously visiting for the first time quickly relax once they see the chef's gentle smile.
The quality of his orthodox French cuisine is widely renowned. Using pure olive oil and vinegar, he produces light dishes that are crisp with an exquisite acidity that brings out the original flavor of the fine ingredients and perfectly complements select French wines. The flavorful synergy of his dishes with wine is an experience all connoisseurs should experience. While perfect for special occasions, Virbius is casual enough to visit any time you're in the mood to escape, relax and enjoy.

French meets Italian

"Chefs must be selective about their suppliers and ingredients", remarks chef Toru Fukuma. He makes a point of getting out of the kitchen to find the most flavor-packed ingredients, which themselves define how the dishes should be prepared.
His conviction is based on vast multifaceted experience. After graduating from culinary school, he worked at a French restaurant in Tokyo. Then he cultivated his talent at a starred restaurant in Italy. Upon returning to Japan, he further honed his skills at a luxury hotel before opening Osteria quinto.
Deep experience with both French and Italian cuisine has equipped Chef Toru Fukuma with diverse techniques for bringing out flavor. And this is where he focuses his attention. Success begins with a thorough understanding of every ingredient. What makes a certain ingredient so delicious? Is it the moisture or concentrated flavor? One must expertly analyze each ingredient to identify its character, then add the flavor it lacks or find a way to contrast it. This is how ingredients define the way dishes should be prepared.
The menu changes frequently and when you scan the available dishes you may be surprised to discover that a new season has arrived. Whatever the season, you can be sure that every dish will deliciously bring out the inherent flavor of the fine ingredients.

Italian in Ogikubo

Nestled away in a residential corner of Ogikubo is Drammatico, a restaurant that feels like it belongs in an Italian port. Of course, this is chef Chuya Shigeoka's intention.
Rather than striving to attract customers for special occasions, he provides a homey atmosphere where guests want to spend quality time every day. In place of decorations, he offers warm service for all customers whether seated downstairs at the counter or upstairs in the dining room — and fine wines at reasonable prices. There's no need to dress up for a fancy night out. Just visit whenever you like in your everyday clothes and Drammatico will welcome you with open arms.
It's easy to see why the restaurant is so popular with locals. Not only is the atmosphere warm and casual, but the food is simply delicious. The dinner course is limited to the chef's recommendation, and he keeps the dining experience fresh by only preparing the amuse after seeing each guest. So it comes from the heart and resonates with the customer. A remarkable 90% of guests are regulars, which testifies to the high level of customer satisfaction.

Bistrot Sans Le Sou

Born into a restaurant-running family. Trained in France and Tokyo. Chef Kaneko is genuinely gifted.

Inspired 90s French

Owner chef Toshimitsu Kaneko tells us, "the restaurant was inspired by our experience in France in the 1990s". While visiting France with his wife, who is also a culinary expert, they came across a bistro in the Parisian suburb of Van Dome that greatly impressed them and swore to open a similar restaurant in Japan someday.
After working at two renowned restaurants in France, including starred Le Restaurant, he returned to Japan to open Bistro Sans le Sou on the outskirts of Nishi Ogikubo in 1995. The couple has run the restaurant for over 20 years since moving it to a larger, more sophisticated space near the station. But their passion and fresh hospitality have never wavered and many locals are long-time regular customers.
The menu consists of set courses offering a remarkable range of dishes, including over 20 appetizers, 15 main dishes, various cheeses, homemade breads and 10 desserts. The thick sauces and rich foie gras accents require high-level technique and are characteristic of fine French cuisine of the 1990s.
Whether seeking classic dishes or a new taste experience, customers find satisfaction at Bistro Sans le Sou, where owner chef Kaneko maintains a traditional taste while freely introducing new ingredients. His warm hospitality, open attitude and unwavering diligence have made him a favorite among connoisseurs.

Chef Tetsuya Ogiwara and sommelier Daisuke Hirata first worked together at a restaurant over 20 years ago.

Le Ciel

The wines are French and Japanese, based on the borderless concept that flavor matters more than origin.

Exclusivity and surprise

Restaurant Le Ciel is an exclusive hideaway worth experiencing. About five minutes from Kunitachi Station, on the third floor of a building in a quiet residential area, it limits guests to three groups for lunch and three groups for dinner so the dedicated proprietors can fully satisfy every guest.
Many connoisseurs repeatedly return to experience the unforgettably fascinating dishes. Today's appetizer, for example, appears to be red fruit peeking out from toasted Japanese soybean flour. But the flavor is clearly French. With the first intoxicating bite, you realize the powder is frozen foie gras and the red fruit is candy-coated foie gras. From feathery powder to crunchy candy coating that melts in your mouth, the distinctive combination of flavors and textures is amazing.
Many dishes are surprising, but the main attraction of the restaurant is the overall quality of the food and service. Chef Tetsuya Ogiwara and sommelier Daisuke Hirata run the business together based on a "borderless French cuisine" concept, striving to perfect every facet of the dining experience and focus all their energies on satisfying each guest. The resulting luxury and gratification is far beyond what the restaurant's moderate prices would suggest.
