Finally went to the prestigious L’ecrin. Have passed by its entrance in the middle of Ginza many times but never went inside. It is at the basement floor. The very dark, heavy red decor with shining gold lights was kinda intimidating at first.
From the 5700yen lunch course. Aubergine pate.
Langoustines and vegetables confit. Absolutely delicious! Another pic.
You put the saffron sauce and cheese on the biscuit and lay it on top of the soup.
Roasted baby duck with Madere sauce.
Fruit soup from the dessert wagon.
Also from the wagon. You can choose up to 5 different kinds of cake.
Food is “orthodox” and nothing fancy, but tastes good. Only thing is the service, which is snobby, bordering on rude. Another table seemed like regular customers and they received pretty smiley and friendly serivce….
