Set in a classy space, Botanica has been aptly-named after its design and scenic location. Overlooking a picturesque garden, and the interiors decked up with plants, it’s easy to feel relaxed the moment you step in through the door. The best way to get a taste of the scrumptious meals on offer is to opt for one of the three prix fixe menus. The best option is Chef’s Special Recommendation which comes with Onion Gratin Soup, Homemade Pasta, Marinated Clams and Mushrooms, Catch of the Day, Challandais Duck Thigh and Vanilla Rice Pudding. The meal ends with a steaming cup of coffee or tea. Although the dishes are priced on the steeper side, the restaurant is perfect for celebrating a special occasion, bringing along a date or to simply enjoy a hearty meal.
Using a minimalist but highly artistic approach to food, Chef Yoshihiro Narisawa offers a fusion of flavors that cannot be defined as solely Japanese or French, rather a brilliant blend of both. NARISAWA in Aoyama is the ideal choice for those in search of fine dining that promises to excite your senses and leave you in awe. The deceptively simple decor here belies the scrumptious meals on offer. The chef’s attention to detail culminates in seasonal cuisine dishes that combine organic and sustainable ingredients. Sample the exotic menu, which changes seasonally, and relish some of the finest Japanese wines on offer at Japan’s premier fine dining restaurant, Narisawa.
