With the birth of 'Tokyo Midtown Hibiya' in 2018, the "SALONE" Group, a leader of modern Italian cuisine, has opened a new gate. The name is "SALONE TOKYO". With the backdrop of Hibiya Park and spectacular views of the Imperial Palace's outer moat and the Palace Hotel (5-star hotel of Forbes Travel Guide) in Japan, the spectacular Hibiya location evokes excitement only found here in the heart of Tokyo.
There are 2 head-chef are at the helm of "SALONE TOKYO": Hiroshi Takami, the former chef at "BIODINAMICO" in Shibuya and supervising chef of the SALONE Group, and Yoshikuni Eijima, former co-chief of "SALONE 2007" in Yokohama. On the 10th anniversary of "SALONE 2007," SALONE group took a moment to get back to their roots in anticipation of the next 10 years. In an about-face from the Group's creative culinary style, they leveraged the 2 chefs' training in Italy to express an Italian essence through dishes which value tradition and regional identity.
The chef's choice course, retains the essence of traditional SALONE meals, creating a delicate meal with various layers of ingredients, while also drawing upon the classical style of good old Italian meals. The dishes have all been concentrated into a single main course which emphasizes the major ingredients. "I want to absorb the path that SALONE traveled to this point and use it to make something new," says the manager Hiroaki Nishijima. And the balance of the wine pairings for their dishes are unlike those of other group restaurants. "SALONE TOKYO" serves wine so easy to drink that you won’t notice it is natural wine—an approach you can enjoy only in Hibiya.
While most restaurants today tend toward a modern and simple style, "SALONE TOKYO" sticks to authenticity. The profound interior features a mosaic ceiling and windows. Sunlight shines in through the large windows at lunchtime, and the indirect lighting that leaks through at dinnertime gives the space a fantastic charm. The plates are all gold rimmed 'Rosenthal,' and all of the cutlery is made by traditional silverware maker 'Sambonet,' enriching the dining experience of all guests with an air of luxury. Trust yourself to the great food, space, and service of SALONE, and enjoy an Italian feast reborn in the modern era on a date, at a business dinner, and in many other situations.
