Until recently, Tokyoites spent much time in the city’s internationally renowned restaurants, izakaya pubs and bars. Dining out is an integral part of this city’s DNA.
But now there is a new reality, one where picking up takeout food or ordering in is a new style of “dining out.” Many establishments are adapting to the situation with creativity and innovation.
The Imperial Hotel Tokyo is no exception, with the hotel’s head chef keeping in mind home-bound customers and creating a series of sophisticated appetizers that are available until July 31 under the “Tarte Stylee” promotion.
Three savory tarts are at the centerpiece of this promotion, where prices start at ¥3,500 for two tarts including tax. Some sets offer a half-bottle of Taittinger Champagne.
The tarts and accompanying sauces are presented to be assembled at home under the guidance of videos presented by the Imperial Hotel Tokyo that are accessible via QR code. Fillings include cured ham and artichoke, plump shrimp and asparagus or foie gras and dark cherry; dining at home has never looked so divine.
