Orthodox French meal at a Japanese house in Hibiya

Before taking maternity leave, co-workers and colleagues kindly had opportunities of lunch and dinner for farewell. One of which was held at "NANBUTEI (南部亭)", a French restaurant in the Hibiya Park (日比谷公園). We can have orthodox French meal at a Japanese old house. Lovely combination!

Private room (2nd floor)
Salad with scallop and almond
Pumpkin soup
Lamb steak
Creme brulee with pistachio ice cream
I had not heard about the reputation of NANBUTEI before, it was a good restaurant. Staff was sophisticated and gainly. Their orthodox dishes were delicious. Not old-fashioned. Especially, the steak was great. The way of grilling was skillful. The portion was enough. Decorated plates (maybe Noritake, a Japanese ceramic company) were beautiful. Lunch is available from JPY3,000 (the above set meal costs JPY3,900). My rating is 3.9 out of 5. Gochiso-samadeshita!
