Pirouette's chef
Naoya Kobayashi grew
up on a farm in
Nagano, and he has a
keen appreciation
for what top-quality
farm-fresh ingre-
dients - particular-
ly vegetables -
should taste like.
After training at a
couple of highly
regarded restaurants
in France, he
brought his talents
to this beautifully
appointed Toranomon
dining room, where
he offers a crea-
tive, modern take on
French cuisine.

Highlights of a
recent visit in-
cluded fantastically
soft and tender beef
cheeks, braised in
red wine after being
marinated overnight
in miso and juniper
berries. A lovely
cold broccoli mousse
started things off
on an adventurous
footing, and our
pate de campagne -
not always the most
exciting dish on a
French menu - came
in well above aver-
age, with lots of
meaty flavors bal-
anced by tart fig
and apricot pastes.

The restaurant is
divided into the
more comfortably
furnished bistro
side in back, with
prix-fixe menus from
Y5000 (+10% ser-
vice), and the less
expensive cafe area
up front, where you
can sit on high
stools and order
lunch or dinner a la
carte. The wine list
focuses on the more
upscale French re-
gions, with many
bottles in the Y10,
000-20,000 range but
not much under
Y8000. (Wine by the
glass starts at
Y700.) Lunches are
priced from Y3000 in
the bistro and Y1200
in the cafe.
