Editor’s Notes

The popular monthly Tokyo Calendar magazine offers a ‘lifestyle proposal based on Tokyo gourmet’. Packed with tips on ways to enjoy the lovely Tokyo scene, especially from a food & culture perspective, the Calendar is quite the good read as is; but even better, their recent March edition featured a cover story themed ‘Restaurants To-Be Un-Bookable Shortly’.
What better article than this, to feature the ‘Un-Bookable’, the most highly coveted tables in Tokyo? This Calendar article almost seems to have been written for us at Pocket Concierge to read, what with our dedication to a service that ‘makes the un-bookable, bookable’.
Besides their bulletin of ‘Restaurants To-Be Un-Bookable Shortly’, Tokyo Calendar also conveniently compiled a list of restaurants ‘Already Un-Bookable’; a selection of widely renowned eateries of unparalleled distinction, the ‘Un-Bookable 3’ are exactly what we at Pocket Concierge hope to make ‘bookable’ to our guests. In this article, we seek to introduce these magnificent restaurants to our readers, so as to make way for an even better gourmet experience for you.

Ristorante La Barrique Tokyo

La Barrique is as cozy as it is famous; and of course it is, as the restaurant is the child of owner-chef Sakata’s renovation of his own home. Guests can enjoy the mood, a blend of domestic and western influences, as well as the menu, served course by course, with the freshest seasonal ingredients illustrating La barrique’s elegant tableware. Bask in the refined duality of cultures and cuisines, of local and global, and find yourself at home.

Perhaps the most famously ‘Un-Bookable’ restaurant in all of Japan, Quintessance has one, and only one, menu; the 21400JPY course. Every day is unique, with the kitchen doing its utmost to concoct dishes that make the absolute most of the season’s bounty. Headed by chef Shuzo Kishida, former sous-chef at Paris’ #1 ‘Un-Bookable’ l’Astrance, Quintessance is Japan’s premier Grande Maison offering unrivaled excellence; opportunities will be rare, but they will most certainly be more than worth it.
