From the unique experience of being the only Japanese chef on board the Orient-Express, Managing Chef, George Somura, has realized his longtime dream to open a French restaurant with a train carriage. The carriage you can see right next to the platform-like restaurant is once called the "Japanese Orient-Express".
A ta gueule is located in Fukagawa area - only 3 stops from central Tokyo, Nihonbashi by Tozai Line of Tokyo Metro but the area is just perfect for esceping from the hastle and bustle of a city. With a view of the lush green of the trees in Kiba Park across the street, the gleaming blue and beige colored carriage comes into your sight. Ascending the steps and walking through the platform, you are invited to the dining area resembling the station. In the dining area, you can enjoy authentic French cuisine but added the essence of each country where the Orient-Express runs through. A lounge in the carriage is open for smokers at any time. Non-smoking guests can also enjoy aperitifs and digestives in the lounge.
Chef's speciality, the gibier dishes, are served by each season.
Please sit back, relax and enjoy your journey with the Japanese Orient-Express!
