A little piece of France is hiding behind the plants of the Tokyo Square Garden, modern skyscraper covered in green on its top and bottom floors. The bright red front and large picture windows offer a glimpse of this restaurant, looking like a French brasserie, which may be surprising in the Japanese capital. For lunch and dinner, food lovers take a seat on the Bistrot de l'Oie's ribbed leather sofas to better enjoy the speciality: goose, like the French name suggests.
Here, you can taste it in a variety of forms, from confit liver to sautéed foie gras with gingerbread, and roasted liver in bitter orange sauce. However, lovers of French food will also be able to try other famous dishes, such as the traditional cassoulet (sausage and beans), fish stew with tomato and vegetables, and stuffed cabbage à l'ancienne. The restaurant's full name, Les Rosiers - Le Bistrot de l'Oie, also reveals a few flavours from Basque country, native region of chef Andrée Rosier (first woman to ever receive the Best Craftsman of France award for her cooking in 2007). Piquillos with salt cod, Basque-style chicken, chipirons in cuttlefish ink sauce, piperade omelette… To say you have an abundance of choices is an understatement!
