Restaurant Ryuzu Wine List
About Restaurant Ryuzu
While there are numerous French-based restaurants in Tokyo, Restaurant Ryuzu, in the Roppongi district, stands out for their truly thoughtful philosophy. Here they sublimate traditional French technique using much less salt, butter and oil to achieve absolute transparency and pureness of the finest ingredients, with a wellness of the guest firmly in their mind.
The gentle approach extends to interiors and table wares as well. Warmth of walnut, liveliness of flowers, soft touch of wooden cutleries is all carefully rendering magically comfortable dining room.
The wine selection here is also an extension of their philosophy. You should not expect bold wines here, simply because they don’t pair well with Ryuzu’s cuisine. For that reason, burgundies are the main focus here accompanied by some contemporary wines from all around the globe.
The wine pairing is also highly recommended. Sommelier Shunsuke Maruyama coordinates wine pairing menu quite tactfully by incorporating many different colors, countries and styles of wine.
