'Le Colonial', and I like that atmosphere. (Of course, if you say 'black', I say 'white', and if you say 'bark', I say 'bite'.) The exterior here is very much 'converted house', with ivy and discrete lighting (or 'le lighting discrete', as they used to say in Laos in the old days. I still entertain fantasies of going all Kurtz for a year or two.). It's a pleasure to walk up the hill southwest of Ebisu and find this at the end.
The menu is the type I like - you can get the chef's course, out of which everything sounded good, or can else very reasonably priced 'courses' that are really just 'choose your starter, main, and dessert'. We went the latter option, getting the shortest course (no mixed starter, no coffee). Ample volume.
There it is - nothing too complex, but nice atmosphere, nice service, and especially nice cooking.
At nice prices. What more do you need?
