Situated inside the New Otani Hotel, Garden Lounge (Gadenraunji) serves up a splurge-worthy buffet and unique a la carte items — accompanied by views of the hotel’s beautiful gardens. The open lounge is colorful and quirky with large floor-to-ceiling windows that force your gaze towards the serene surroundings. Expect a mix of sweet and savory pastries from the restaurant’s expert chef-patissier plus seasoned rice, tea sandwiches, soup, fresh fruit, and more.
On a typical weekday morning, expect to see about 15 people lined up outside of Taiyaki Wakaba, a tiny hole-in-the-wall establishment. It's famous for fresh taiyaki, a traditional fish-shaped Japanese cake with a waffle-like consistency and stuffed with sweet red bean paste. For only 140 yen, taiyaki is as cheap as it is delicious. There’s a few tables inside (plus free green tea!), or you can take your taiyaki to-go.
Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden is arguably Tokyo's most beautiful park.
While here, ask for a map in English ("Eh-go mappoo?") as you walk in so you can be sure to hit all the major gardens: English Landscape, French Formal, Japanese Traditional (with teahouse) and the curiously named Mother and Child Forest (Haha to Ko no Mori). There's also a lovely Taiwan Pavilion; go inside and look out the second-story windows for an excellent view of the park.
A moody, romantic, wood-paneled bar modeled after Prohibition-era speakeasies in Chicago, Gaslight is home to champion bartenders who mix perfect martinis, gin and tonics, Moscow Mules, and other classic using house-made spirits including ginger vodka. If the delicious drinks perk up your appetite, they also serve creative small plates like house-made bacon, house-pickled koji miso cream cheese (which goes great with their premium whiskeys, and cheese and sausage platters.
Aronia de Takazawa is one of Tokyo's best fine dining restaurants, and one of the hardest tables in town to snag. They're so exclusive that they even kicked out the Michelin inspectors.
Luckily, Chef Yoshiaki Takazawa has just opened a bar right around the corner from the parent restaurant.
"The food menu reflects Takazawa’s unwavering focus on premium Japanese ingredients, as always straddling the divide between Japanese and Western. His superb ankimo (monkfish liver) comes from Sado Island, off the coast of Niigata Prefecture. He offers a delectable pate de campagne (country terrine) sandwiched between two wafer-thin, crisp slices of bread made with jet-black bamboo charcoal.
Those who have eaten at the restaurant can revisit his classic vegetable parfait in scaled-down form. His karaage fried chicken is excellent, as is his venison sandwich. And the takoyaki dumplings — made with shirako (cod milt) in place of octopus — are not to be missed."
Originally founded in San Francisco, Trader Vic’s is a sophisticated steakhouse on the fourth floor of the New Otani Hotel. Decked out in bamboo, carpeted floors, and crisp white tablecloths, the restaurant has equal influences from both Japan and its stateside counterpart. They serve up classic-meets-fusion dishes that will satisfy and fill you to the brim, like marinated t-bone steak with heavy notes of soy sauce and ginger — prepared in an old school Chinese-wood fired oven located in the center of the main dining room. Note: Trader Vic's enforces a ‘smart casual’ dress code.
