I’ve been dying to try Robuchon’s restaurant in Ebisu because it’s one of only 11 three-star Michelin rated restaurants in Tokyo. Although I later realized the one I went to was La Table de Robuchon and the three-star rated restaurant was on the 2nd floor (called Joel Robuchon Restaurant)… oops
Anyhow, as soon as you arrive, you are greeted by this beautiful mansion and you instantly feel like you are walking into luxury. When we went, the restaurant was completely full with madames having lunch. The food and service were exquisite and it was definitely worth checking out. The attention to detail and presentation of every dish transformed the food into more of art pieces than dishes for eating. I definitely recommend giving this restaurant a try for a special occasion.

Located near the entrance to Ebisu Garden Place is an organic deli called Grano Delicatessen which opened in September of 2011. They have many healthy choices to choose from and we had the dinner plate which includes two selections of your choice from the deli window case + main dish + brown rice or bread for 1300yen. For the main dish you can select a protein such as fish or meat, but this is also a great place for vegetarians as well. Since there’s not many vegetarian options in Japan, this is definitely a good option for those who are looking for good veggies. It’s an affordable and healthy choice despite its high-end Ebisu Garden Place location.
I really like their Honey Pumpkin Gorgonzola salad and their ginger lemonade hot tea. Not a huge fan of their desserts though. I’ve tried three different desserts so far but they were all just OK.
