I visited for lunch with a friend. Aso, with 2 Michelin stars, is perhaps tokyo's finest Italian restaurant. Tatsuji Aso brings touches of Japanese artistic flair to some excellent Italian dishes. Walking through the brasserie/cafe at the front, which was very popular on a Tuesday lunchtime, the restaurant is located at the rear.
We were presented with some three menu options for lunch and opted for the 11,500¥ menu. The food is excellent, although I would have preferred a little more time between courses, but this is the way in Tokyo. Particular to note was the foie gras served in a light crepe and a sweetcorn dressing. The aged Japanese beef was also excellent, as was dessert. I chose ice creams served on a block of ice with different salts on the size that you grind yourself.
Service is excellent. Efficient and friendly. I found the atmosphere a little wanting although this is not the place you come to for entertainment, it's about the food.
A definite recommend but book in advance.
