"Matsuzaka Ushi(Beef) Kaiseki Shin" opened its doors in 2018. Located near Toranomon Hills, a well-known landmark in the recently redeveloped Toranomon area of Tokyo, this restaurant offers Japanese Matsuzaka beef with a creative kaiseki twist. Head chef Kazuhiro Ozone acquired his cooking skills working at famous hotels and restaurants like Kanetanaka. Ozone uses his 50 years of experience as a chef to provide diners with high quality, creative beef kaiseki—a combination of Japanese cuisine and Matsuzaka beef, one of the best varieties of wagyu.
For example, the recommended Matsuzaka beef three-piece course includes dishes with a French spin, such as a seasonal vegetable mousse and Matsusaka beef gelee cocktail, as well as traditional Japanese elements like hassun (the seasonal dish in kaiseki cuisine), a bowl of Matsuzaka beef shabu-shabu in Kyoto style broth, and a sukiyaki style takiawase with red wine based broth. The menu is rich in variation, with plenty of fusions of Western and Japanese style cuisine. Enjoy seasonal Japanese ingredients combined with the distinctive sweet aroma and melt-in-your-mouth texture of Matsusaka beef. The deliciousness of Ozone's beef kaiseki is further elevated by the selection of wines chosen by a sommelier and rare varieties of Japanese whiskey and sake. Wines on offer include Kenzo Estate, Tenchijin burgundy, and Italian super Tuscan Tignanello. Sakes include Aramasa, Hanamura, Jikon, and other exclusive varieties, served by the glass.
The refined interior is heavily inspired by art nouveau. In addition to 12 counter seats, there are three private rooms seating 4-12 people. English and Chinese speaking staff are prepared to respond to diners' requests as best they can, making this restaurant a great place to bring business clients or visitors from abroad. In the international Toranomon area, experience a combination of Matsusaka beef and Japanese sake that you'll only find in Japan.
