Cafe Troisgrois, a
casual dining spot
from Michelin-
starred chef Michel
Troisgrois, turns
out speedy, well-
prepared lunches
that offer good
value for money
(from Y1500). During
a recent lunchtime
visit, a platter of
mortadella, pota-
toes, and vegeta-
bles, dressed in a
piquant mustard-
vinaigrette, was
straightforwardly
tasty, while a salad
of crunchy tsubugai
shellfish and creamy
avocado offered an
interesting contrast
of textures. The
grilled pork chop,
overlaying a bed of
red cabbage and
accompanied by a
blob of whipped
potato-and-garlic
rouille sauce, was
well worth its Y250
surcharge.

During off-peak
hours (10-11am, 2-
6pm), Cafe Trois-
grois's teatime menu
offers the same
frothy coffee drinks
and sweet treats you
might expect at
places like After-
noon Tea, but with
an upscale, gourmet
twist. Mascarpone
mousse, served
alongside orange and
carrot ice cream, is
adorned with a lacy
sugar-crisp. Honey-
coated rusk toasts
are dusted with
jasmine-scented
sugar.

Tucked away behind
the eighth-floor
glassware department
in Odakyu Department
Store, the space is
a bit difficult to
find. Despite the
bold purple-and-
green color scheme
and the pleasant
view of Shinjuku,
the feeling of being
in a department
store never com-
pletely goes away.

Dinner is served
until 8:30pm, but
the atmosphere is
not exactly condu-
cive to lingering.
However, the Y1050
corkage fee, which
allows you to bring
up a bottle of wine
from the Boutique
Troisgrois in the
basement, may pro-
vide an incentive to
stay.
