Double the Magic: Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Otemachi Opens Two Sky-High Terraces

From energising breakfasts to glittering nightcaps – and everything in between
March 15, 2021,
Tokyo, Japan

Celebrate the arrival of spring with alfresco drinks and dining at Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Otemachi. With two panoramic terraces set to open on March 15, 2021, the Hotel offers an array of new experiences for guests: meet for breezy breakfasts, linger over sun-soaked lunches, and raise a toast to twilight with aperitivo. With unparallelled views of the city skyline and Imperial Palace Gardens (and even Mount Fuji on a clear day), these rooftop venues take sky-high gastronomy to a whole new level.

What’s new at the est terrace?

Season’s Best: New Spring Menus. Discover newly-designed lunch sets and omakase by Michelin-starred Chef Guillaume Bracaval, who combines French techniques with impeccable ingredients from the Japanese terroir. Brimming with the abundance of sea and land, the menu features seasonal stars such as snow crab, wild trout, venison and citrus. “My favourite is the sea perch, which we source fresh from Hokkaido,” says Chef Guillaume. Sample this flavourful fish as carpaccio with herbs and ponkan orange, or enjoy it paired with fragrant vegetables and a heavenly cream sauce.

Connoisseurs of meat can savour the boeuf arlequin, a medley of wagyu beef, yuzu koshu and red wine sauce; or côte de veau dorée, veal rib paired with the rich, nutty notes of Parmigiano-Reggiano. Framed by sweeping cityscapes, the terrace at est is perfect for everything from an impressive business lunch to a memorable afternoon with loved ones.

  • Set lunch: JPY 7,500 for two courses, JPY 10,000 for three courses; JPY 16,500 for Omakase
  • Dinner:  JPY 20,000 for Saison, JPY 25,000 for Terroir

Café Gourmand: Artful Confectionaries. Extend the sunlit celebration with light desserts, served alongside tea and coffee – a classic French tradition. Under the expert touch of Pastry Chef Michele Abbatemarco, each sweet treat is composed like a work of art and plated with precision. Taste fresh madeleines, hot from the pan, and vibrant delights such as macaroons and sorbet. Drawing inspiration from Mont Blanc, Chef Michele’s merveilleux is an intricate symphony of coffee meringue, chestnut mousse, citrus cream, mikan juice, caramelised chestnuts and hazelnuts.

  • Available from Friday to Sunday, 2:00 to 5:00 pm

Bubbles in the Sky: Santé Apéro! As the setting sun paints the sky with magical hues, meet for alfresco apéritif hosted at est’s terrace. “L’apéritif, c’est la prière du soir des Français,” describes Restaurant Manager Jonathan Montolieu. “The apéritif is the evening prayer of the French.”  A time-honoured ritual, apéritif in France is the chance to slow down, imbibe beverages with a few light snacks and engage in leisurely conversation. Gaze out at dramatic views of Tokyo while sipping free-flow Champagne and curated cocktails by VIRTÙ Head Bartender Joshua Perez for two glorious golden hours – perfect for a pre-dinner gathering with colleagues or friends.

  • Available Thursday to Tuesday from 5:30 to 7:30 pm (last order at 7:00 pm)
  • JPY 10,000 for Bollinger Champagne and cocktails, JPY 15,000 for Henriot Rosé Champagne (free flow for two hours)
