Hortensia is outstanding in the skill with which its dishes are prepared and served and in the imagination of the chef. While mainly French in conception and presentation, the ingredients are mainly Japanese and the sauces and combinations have a strong Japanese element. The fixed menu, which includes an amuse bouche, 2 appetizers, 2 mains and a dessert, is a... More

If you want a very fancy but genuine French cuisine, you must try this place. I read about it in the New York Times. I asked my Japanese friend to make a reservation for us. Don't worry the wait staff speaks English well. One chooses 4 items from the appetizers, main dishes and dessert. Coffee and tea are included. There... More
