“There’s no real French brasserie in the Ginza and Nihombashi area,” says Crabbe, CEO and Chef Director of ECN. “With Takashimaya, which is such an old brand, in Nihombashi, which is one of the oldest precincts in Tokyo, it’s such a great opportunity to open an old-school French brasserie, but brought up to 2018.”
While Tokyo’s latest seafood restaurant Xiringuito Escribà is not quite located in a Spanish seaside paradise, eating there will make you feel as if you truly were. Coupled with the launch of the Shibuya Stream building in September, the Catalonian seafood hut has opened its latest chapter in the heart of Tokyo’s busiest district. This restaurant may have a challenging name to pronounce, their premise is simple: to make great food.
