Four types of Charcuterie (¥1,296) are recommended as appetizers
Herb roast of rabbit leg (¥1,728)
The fancy image of French cuisine won’t be as intimidating because of the casual menus such as a sharable plate and a plate of whole cut meat! Four types of Charcuterie (¥1,296) has a salad of smoked egg, chicken breast, and cream cheese terrine. There are also plenty of seasonal gibier (game) dishes like the Herb roast of rabbit leg (¥1,728). Enjoy these dishes with a variety of domestic and international natural wine.

Domestic Japanese Kuroge Wagyu Dish (¥2,462)
Kuroge Wagyu Demiglace Stew (¥842)
You can choose from a wide variety of dishes -- baked food, stew, and sushi -- that use local ingredients, mainly with A5-ranked Japanese Wagyu Beef. We recommend the Kuroge Wagyu Dish (¥2,462). The dish is simply salted and grilled so that people can enjoy the flavor of the meat itself. Kuroge Wagyu Demiglace Stew (¥842) is made with plenty of beef chuck and is simmered for 12 hours. This is also delicious.
Different parts of meat are used in separate dishes.
There are individual rooms for 2 to 4 people aside from the large room of the restaurant.
The food is made by a chef whose former job taught him everything about meat. Since the taste and texture are different between meat parts such as sirloin, misuji (beef sinew), and sankaku (arm), he can highlight the strengths of each part by using them in different dishes.

Leg meat, a soft part of wild boar, is used in Wild Boar Saikyo Grill Gorgonzola Sauce (¥2,052). The meat pairs well with wine, and the Wagyu Rump Char-grill (¥3,024 for 100 grams) goes great with red wine. Once you bite into it, you can enjoy the juiciness of the Wagyu rump. The featured meat comes from the warehouse occasionally, so you can enjoy seasonal menus.
