Perfect the art of stylish home lounging at House. Opened last year by the people behind Cibone, Tokyo’s definitive design store, it is little surprise that the interior is achingly chic. The bijou restaurant is filled with vintage-style mirrors, mismatched wooden chairs, scrapwood tables and copper lighting hanging from the ceiling.
True to Cibone’s impeccable design credentials, the interior was created by Jamo Associates and furniture by designer Piet Hein Eek. Invariably attracting design and fashion crowds, the clientele is equally classy.
Comfort food is the order of the day, with steaming cast iron Staub cocotte pans brought directly to the table for an extra homely touch. Highlights include the smoked seafood salad with whitefish, scallop and prawn and roasted fish of the day although centre stage is undoubtedly the beef stew, cooked for ten hours
