Located on the 4th floor of the Ginza building, "Uni & Wine Tsukihi" is a restaurant where you can enjoy sea urchin ("uni") themed dishes with wine, just as its name implies. The restaurant's gourmet guests are served by Chef Akiko Ikeya.
Influenced by her sushi chef grandfather in Yamanashi Prefecture, Chef Ikeya has loved cooking since childhood. A stint in a language school in Torino, Italy inspired her to become a chef and spend four years training in a local restaurant. After returning to Japan, she worked at "AW Kitchen Laplatina Shirokane" and became manager of "AW Kitchen Higashiyama HQ". She then served as head chef at "AW Kitchen Figlia Aoyama" before assuming her position as chef at "Uni & Wine Tsukihi" with its opening in 2018.
Here you can compare various kinds of seasonal fresh sea urchin, and try sea urchin prepared and arranged in various ways like baked or made into the dressing. The sommelier's carefully selected wine pairings provide a thoroughly enjoyable experience of the marriage of sea urchin and wine. The playful presentation of dishes like "Sea urchin and seafood dress omu-rice(omelet and rice)," with its dress-like drape over rice full of snow crab and shrimp, also tickle the gourmet's heart. 7 or 8 varieties of high-quality sea urchin of Hokkaido uni, Rishiri bafun uni, Hakodate murasaki uni, Iwate kitamurasaki uni, and Karatsu uni is available in the summer, and 5 varieties are available in the winter. Wine available for pairing includes Champagne "Henri Giraud" and fine Californian wines from "Kenzo Estate".
To make guests feel like they're being invited into a home, Chef Ikeya has decorated with leather upholstered chairs and record-themed coasters. Music played from records completes the relaxing space. With counter seating for dates, booth seating for lively groups of friends, and private rooms for entertaining or weekend family lunches (6 people), you can reserve the right seating for any situation. Come to experience the world of sea urchin and wine in a light-hearted, casual way.
