Set in an elegant space, Ivy Place is a quiet, cozy place great for a quick breakfast fix. The establishment is split into three different dining spaces comprising of a bar, a cafe and a restaurant. The restaurant with its wood and stone interiors, outdoor patio complete with Japanese zelkova trees and the vintage furniture sets the mood for a pleasant dining experience. The contemporary dishes carry a hint of Mediterranean and American influence, and are a real treat to the taste buds. Domestic Filet Steak, Kalbi Kimchi Grilled Cheese and Monte Cristo Sandwich are just some of the dishes featured here. As Ivy Place doesn’t accept reservations, there might be quite a rush, especially during peak hours. However, the delicious food and great ambiance makes the wait well worth the anticipation.
Japanese food critics state that Roppongi eateries have a tendency to fall prey to the trap of flashy interiors, with less focus on the food. However, Jou Mon steers away from the mesh and offers authentic kushiyaki fare, apart from an extensive selection of drinks. The interiors feature an earthy theme, complete with some warm decor accents and comfortable seating. Offering a laid-back atmosphere, Jou Mon is popular for the succulent tsukune, pork calbi and skewers, rightly smoked on the grill. With its impressive list of shochu concoctions, Jou Man also draws in drinkers from various parts of the city.
