Keio Plaza Tokyo Duo Fourchettes French & Italian Restaurant

It's French meets Italian at Duo Fourchettes ( デュオ フルシェット ), a fine dining establishment located on the 2nd level in the South Tower of Keio Plaza Hotel Tokyo. The tasteful dining room is harmonized by flawless service and impeccable European cuisine, making a satisfying meal fit for any occasion.

Be welcomed by a warm, charming interior, with diners submerging themselves in both conversation as well as hearty French and Italian cuisines. The opulent ambience and intimate service created an unforgettable dining experience for me, a very special one indeed.

My tasting that evening commenced with a generous portion of Sautéed Foie Gras ( フォワグラのポワレ ) at ¥3,700, (¥1,000 approx = USD 8.5). Sitting on a sweet and tangy sauce with berries and prunes, the goose liver with crispy exterior melted in my mouth as I slowly indulged in the French delicacy. Yummy!

Our second course was rather an interesting one with Chef Toshiyuki Tomokuni ( 友國稔行 ) treating us to their Prosciutto con Bomba ( 生ハム カッティングサービス ) at ¥3,000.

Love the name バクダンフォカッチーノ, literally means Bomb Foccacino, an inflated oven-baked Italian flat bread!

For the price tag of ¥3,000, you will have Chef Tomokuni personally slicing the wafer-thin dry-cured ham from San Daniele ( サンダニエーレ産生ハム ), and placing them on top of the " bomb " before it explodes before your eyes as the chef cuts to release the air turning it into a flat bread.

Here's Chef Tomokuni presenting one of Duo Fourchettes' signatures dishes - the Prosciutto con Bomba ( 生ハム カッティングサービス )!

The thin and crispy Prosciutto con Bomba was real savoury with the addition of the wild rockets, making it a fun and tasty treat!

I always enjoy a Consommé Soup ( コンソメマルミット シェリー酒の香り ) ¥1,850, especially when having pizza-like dishes as it somehow helps to open up my appetite. Love the flavourful clear beef soup infused with a hint of scented sherry.

Another show-stopper is the Parmigiano Reggiano ( パルミジャーノレッジャーノ ) at ¥2,800, a pasta dish tossed in half wheel of Parmigiano Reggiano at your table.

It was certainly interesting watching the chef scrapping the cheese from a huge half block of wheel, and stirring in the cooked #Fusilli right in front of you. A simple drizzle of olive oil works wonders to sharpen the distinguished flavour in the fresh pasta made from beetroot and spinach. The dish was especially delectable with the melted cheese, creating the base sauce for the Italian pasta.

keio plaza tokyo duo fourchettes seafood review
Price is unavailable for this Seafood Acqua Pazza ( シーフードのアクア ); it was a special request from me as I was in a mood for some nice seafood. The succulent shellfish, tossed in tomatoes and olive oil, were plumpy and so appetizing. Love the addition of black olives and capers, which are distinctive ingredients in the Italian cuisine.

While I was still in the European dreamland, a charming guy came and knelt down in front of my with a stalk of rose! How often do you get a man to go down on his knees, let alone at my age? What's going on?

Well, I obviously had a splendid time at Duo Fourchettes savouring their food as well as getting to meet the wonderful team behind the French / Italian Restaurant in Tokyo. The marvellous traditional cuisines with carefully selected dishes are matched by their warm meticulous hospitality, and every dish is a mélange of quality, colours and flavours.
