Crony

Tokyo, Japan

With its textured ceiling, checked cushions and glossy houseplants, Crony’s interiors are warm and cosseting, particularly in comparison to the austere aesthetic of many Tokyo restaurants. Michihiro Haruta – who has spent times in the kitchens of France and the US in renowned restaurants such as Ledoyen in Paris and San Francisco’s Saison – applies French, Scandinavian and North American techniques to quality Japanese ingredients resulting in whimsical tasting menus. Think miniature flaky Danish pastries stuffed with sea urchin; barely cooked pigeon breast topped with cabbage and white truffle shavings; and milk pudding crowned in a crunchy powder of dehydrated herbs. The excellent wine list includes French classics, as well as up and coming Californian growers.
