Aman Hotels are possibly my favourite hotel “chain” and something new is sprouting in Tokyo. Aman Tokyo has announced the launch of The Café by Aman, its new café concept situated on the ground floor of The Otemachi Tower. Located in Tokyo’s business district, The Café by Aman is a peaceful oasis offering green views through a 3,600-square-metre, manmade forest at the base of Aman Tokyo. Flooded with natural light through its floor-to-ceiling windows, the café provides both indoor and outdoor seating and is open for lunch and dinner.
The Café by Aman is the only restaurant in Tokyo to serve fresh seasonal still and sparkling sakes (ginjo, junmai ginjo, namazake) poured from unique sake vats which were created by long established sake brewery, Masumi, named after a Japanese family that has been producing sake for over 350 years and who also blend and produce Aman Tokyo’s signature sake. Utilising only the freshest local produce, the seasonal menu focuses on Mediterranean-inspired fare including Iberian hams as well as Japanese meats and fresh seafood. The signature Afternoon Tea incorporates Japan’s Bento concept with delicate pastries served in customised wooden boxes.
I have no doubt the food here is exquisite. I can’t wait to try out this mini forest cafe for myself!
