    OUT is a new restaurant in Shibuya which is noticeable for its pink neon sign on its window. It only offers one dish, one wine, and one sound. This concept comes from David Mackintosh who also runs a restaurant in Melbourne, Tom Crago who’s an entrepreneur, and Sarah Crago who’s a food consultant in Tokyo.

    OUT’s special dish is a fresh homemade truffle pasta paired with a selected wine. This is prepared by servers to the beat of Led Zeppelin, an English rock band formed in London. Each dinner set costs 4,000 yen and this includes an appetizer, a glass of red wine, and pasta. The place promises to give you an unpretentious superb time.
