The six of us were on the hunt to find a nijikai spot and on a Thursday night in Kagurazaka sooooo many of the tiny restaurants condensed into this town were overflowing. But luckily along one of the tiny side streets we found a place that could accommodate us.
Looks like waiting area outside of the restaurant.
Huge selection of Champagnes, wines, beers..
We were evenly split between wine and beers... service was spot on great.
The cheese platter was interesting... just a tiny slice of each and they brought out slices of bread.
FYI bathroom is shared but so clean.
Don't see record player so often anymore...
The friendly staff. The guy in the middle greeted us at the door and turns out he's half French and half Japanese... the chef peeking out of the kitchen.
According to the foodies on Tabelog dinners average around 8,000 to 10,000yen per person so this place does command a premium. But they are ranked in the top 1000 restaurants in Tokyo so if you aren't budget conscious then perhaps it would be a great place to visit at least once. If anything the expansive wine menu should be a treat.
