Great Western Food in Tokyo: The Brasserie at the Imprial Hotel

After a week of all-Japanese food, I was longing for a Western (French) meal and the Brasserie at the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo was recommended to me. It was absolutely excellent.

The restaurant is not located in the main building but in an adjacent building, it's on a lower level but the ceilings are two-floors high to bring back memories of Paris, the service was perfect, and some of the dishes I saw looked more authentic (traditional) than you'd get in Paris! And the price was a pleasant surprise - about $100 for 1 person, including a bottle of imported Chablis. I highly recommend it.

  1. Les Saisons on the 2nd floor of the main building is one of the top French restaurants in the city. Have never thought of going to La Brasserie as Thierry Voisin`s food is so tempting. Curious, did you have any of the Alsatian dishes at La Brasserie? Do you remember if they had Tarte Flambee, the thin crusted pizzas of Alsace?
