Modern art...Troisgros in Shinjyuku

Just next to the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office(都庁) in Shinjyuku(新宿), there is Hyatt Regency Tokyo (ハイアットリージェンシー東京). One of their features that attracts customers is "Cuisine[s] Michel Troisgros(キュイジーヌ[s]ミシェル・トロワグロ)", a Tokyo branch of the famous Michelin three stars French restaurant. If I'm correct, the branch also won two stars of Michelin guide.

The taste of dishes were much better than expectation! Certainly, their cuisine was a bit above than the ones of even high-quality French restaurants. Each dish was cooked in a careful manner with very fresh ingredients. They don't use much traditional French ingredients such as cream, butter, egg, etc. They may use specific technique of cooking. The flavor and smell of each ingredients were contained very strong that left us strong impressions.  

The balance of set meal is very adequate. Even if we ate all, our body was still light(but we were perfectly full). Both appearance and taste were like a modern art. We were impressed by their light but distinctive taste. The problem might be price. The set meal is available from JPY14,700 and service charge. Service was not bad, but they had no matured staff who could have a witty conversation with customers. That was a bit regrettable. My rating is 4.5 out of 5. Gochiso-samadeshita!
