Premium Burgers Make a Triumphant Return
Premium burgers have become a summer tradition at the Brasserie. Brasserie's bartender and Texas native Nate can recommend the perfect brew for this year's newcomer, The Texas. The Paris features a wagyu patty with Brie and black truffles, while The Kyoto combines duck confit with sansho pepper and tamari soy sauce.
More Dining Options
Tucked away in our historic ikeniwa sits our traditional tea house, where Japanese sweets and matcha tea are served. An evening glass of Kyoto sake or premium Champagne on the terrace provides the perfect opportunity to gaze at the pond’s reflection.
The vision of Master Chef Rei Masuda, our one-Michelin-starred restaurant offers an intimate and interactive experience as you watch as our master chefs create stunning dishes made with top-quality ingredients flown in each day from Tokyo’s iconic Tsukiji market – either at the 200-year-old, 10-seat Hinoki counter, or in one of our two private-dining rooms.
