Wine is taken very seriously at Two Rooms – as becomes instantly apparent upon sight of the glass walled cellar brimming more than 1,800 bottles. A great addition to Tokyo’s ever sparkling restaurant scene, Two Rooms opened on the fifth floor of the eye-catching new AO Building on Aoyama Dori in central Tokyo.
Sleek and modern, the interior is filled with clean-lined leather and wood furnishings – including 50,000 year old swamp Kauri wood from New Zealand – as well as a stylish glass walkway. Its terrace overlooking the rooftops of Jingumae and Omotesando has already become a popular dining spot among businessmen, fashionistas and ladies who lunch alike.
Food, however, competes for attention with the setting. Fresh market produce is used to create a modern and seasonal grill menu, with dishes ranging from steamed giant Japanese white asparagus with goat’s cheese to Yamagata Wagyu beef fillets.
