New York's Union
Square Cafe has been
a popular gourmet
hot spot since the
mid-1980s, and the
Tokyo sister shop
captures much of the
energy and excite-
ment of the origi-
nal. The food is
typical internation-
al cuisine with an
emphasis on simplic-
ity and good-quality
seasonal ingre-
dients. The dining
room is beautiful
and well laid out,
with excellent
lighting and a very
comfortable feel.

The menu changes
often, but high-
lights have included
the foie gras appe-
tizer - a hefty
portion of pan-
seared foie gras
with orange slices
and bamboo shoots;
the always-reliable
Iberico pork; and
tuna filet mignon -
big tuna chunks
marinated in soy and
mirin for a few
hours before grill-
ing, served with
tasty wasabi mashed
potatoes.

The wine list
doesn't have all
that much under
Y8000, but there are
a few (like a Pen-
folds Australian
shiraz for Y4800);
by contrast they
have a lot of im-
pressively expensive
bottles for the big
spenders in the
house. Almost all
wines are from Ita-
ly, France or Cali-
fornia. The bar up
front serves a full
assortment of cock-
tails, including an
excellent martini.

Lunches are priced
from Y3000, dinners
from around Y12,000.
Although you can
find equally good
food in Tokyo for
about half the
price, Union Square
is still a good
choice for a busi-
ness dinner or a
special lunch.
