Since our last visit to the Park Hotel Shiodome, the restaurant TY by Tateru Yoshino has undergone a little change. While still being a fine dining restaurant it has toned down slightly. Still the same exceptional location and service, just a little change to the style of food and name. The restaurant is now called Tateru Yoshino Bis and has a more bistro style menu.
Same magnificent view overlooking the city and Tokyo Tower.
The food may be have changed to bistro style, but they still kept the crisp linen tablecloths and napkins.
After perusing the wine list we settled on 2 Bordeaux wines. Mouton Cadet Selection Ryder Cup (sauvignon blanc, semillon, muscadelle) for myself and Chateau Le Puy “Duc de Nauves” (merlot, cabernet franc, cabernet sauvignon) for Mr. CA4G. We also decided to do one of the two set menus, the one we chose was roughly A$50 per person (￥4,800).
Our amuse was a pot of delicious mousse au jambon (ham mousse) with some house baked bread and rolls. A house baked roll is a bonus at any restaurant.
Mr. CA4G chose a crustacean ravioli with a shell fish foam.
I had a pork and pistachio terrine en croute, which was very delicious along with the caperberry and cornichon.
A very light, chilled pea and leek soup followed our entrees.
For mains I chose lamb cutlet with seasonal vegetables. Nicely cooked (for me anyway, I am sure some people would think it undercooked) and well rested. The vegetables were a nice balance of cooking techniques too.
Mr. CA4G decided to try skirt steak with shallot sauce, which was served with fondant potatoes.
For dessert I opted for the fruit clafouti, with plums, housemade ice cream and a pastry wafer.
A little bit of theatrics were involved in Mr. CA4G’s dessert. Tiramisu topped with a chocolate sheet, which then had hot chocolate sauce poured in to the centre, which melted the sheet and became part of the tiramisu beneath.
And to round out dinner coffee and petit fours.
Another wonderful dinner from this restaurant. Service, as always, was impeccable and we look forward to dining there again.
Thanks for dropping by!!
