The restaurant Tatsumi was opened in May 2012 when the 5-star Palace Hotel Tokyo was rebuilt. At the counter with only 6 seats, you can enjoy the live feeling of the ingredients being fried in front of you, bringing out the rich flavor of each season. Placed in an intimate cozy alcove inside Wadakura’s main dining room in Palace Hotel Tokyo, the restaurant is an eight-minute walk from Tokyo Station.
Seasonal selections delicately prepared by master tempura chefs are served alongside seasonal salt pairings to enhance the natural flavors of the day’s offerings. Finished dishes boast a shatteringly crisp exterior owing to a light, thin coating and a custom safflower and grapeseed oil blend, retaining each ingredient’s freshness and integrity. Bespoke salt blends - including varieties such as Andean rock salt, mild red salt, matcha and buckwheat salt - enhance the flavor of seasonal dishes, such as summer sweetfish from Gifu, autumn sweetfish from Lake Biwa and meltingly soft red eggplant grown in Kumamoto.
Specially made for Palace Hotel Tokyo by Hakkasan group, “Ichi-no-ichi-no-ichi” sake blend acts as a perfect palate cleanser, along with over 40 varieties of sake from across Japan and a wine list of over 200 bottles from mainly France and Italy. And while the prix fixe courses are popular, dishes can also be ordered from the a la carte menu.
The dining room’s luxurious, private feeling is enhanced by a marble countertop and a special tempura table used for serving dishes individually. As such, the restaurant is a perfect fit for low-key dates, celebrations, family gatherings and entertainment.
