Dinner: ¥15,000 - ¥19,999
Performance art or fine dining? This Kagurazaka restaurant pulls off both beautifully.
Kagurazaka is sometimes referred to Tokyo’s French Quarter, on account of the high number of Francophile-friendly restaurants here. SECRETO is one of the most unique and modernist of them all. Opened in 2017, this theater of fine dining has been gaining major coverage from the food blogs and magazines of the capital. Stepping through the huge, brass doorway, you’ll enter into a dark space with spotlights mounted above an angled counter. The performance art ambiance is completed by the use of liquid nitrogen to create special effects for some of the dishes. The mastermind behind all this is Akiyoshi Yabunaka. He trained in France from 1999, and at the famous El Bulli in Spain which is notorious for being impossible to reserve. Under the intense pressure of this kitchen, a culinary diamond was formed. Chef Yabunaka's inventive cooking will pique your curiosity with his novel presentations and unexpected twists and turns in the flavors. Rather than taking your pick from a menu, only one set course meal is offered. The fact that drinks are included actually makes this one of the more reasonably priced haute cuisine restaurants in town. Be sure to arrive slightly before your seating time, because the show starts bang on the dot, and you won't want to miss a moment of the first act (or any of those that follow).
