Piacere is an Italian word for “pleasure.” The restaurant makes sure that every meal you have will be a pleasurable one. The dining hall of Piacere has been lavishly decorated with Art Deco and wooden materials up to its high ceiling. It is located on the 28th floor of the hotel which gives a view of the gorgeous Imperial Gardens.
The goal of the restaurant is to provide a cerebral eating experience with delectable dishes. Several creations were made with seasonal ingredients in order to reflect the executive chef’s desire for natural simplicity. Popular dishes on the menu are the Spaghettoni alla carbonara with egg yolks, crunchy pork cheek and Pecorino cheese, and Infused leaf mountain eggs with barley, spelt, black truffles and ham consomme. Dishes served are signature ones from master chefs who focused on serving contemporary Italian dishes with fresh seasonal ingredients.
Dining can be done in the restaurant or in a private banquet room. However, take note that children below 6 years of age are not allowed in the restaurant during lunch time and dinner time. Smoking is not permitted and the dress code is smart casual.
Nadaman is located on the 29th floor of the hotel. The restaurant originally came from Osaka which has been serving well-known leaders and royalties over time. It has created a new dining experience in Tokyo for the modern times. Dishes served are traditional in nature with exquisite pure taste. Creations made by chefs are served with detailed highlights respecting tradition.
The goal of the Chief Chef is to create a brand new style of Japanese cuisine where he can incorporate his experience abroad while still honoring traditional styles. Foods which are highly recommended are Foie Gras Egg Custard with Truffle Sauce, and Kano Eggplant Wrapped in Wagyu Beef. The former provides a twist on the traditional Japanese egg custard while the latter consists of sauteed eggplant wrapped in wagyu.
Nadaman is only open during lunch time from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Smoking is prohibited and the dress code is smart casual.
