Le Verre Volé à Tokyo.
The Tokyo outpost of Paris’ Le Verre Volé.
Le Verre Volé à Tokyo
A brisk 10 minute walk from Meguro station, Le Verre Volé à Tokyo is located a little off the culinary map, on Meguro-dori – an area more commonly associated with uber chic design stores than dining options. If this tiny wine bistro looks like it has been transplanted from the City of Light, that’s because it has. Set up in collaboration with the owners of the Paris’ Le Verre Volé, patron Ryotaro Miyauchi has created a store which is Boho-Parisienne in both taste and aesthetic. The speciality here is natural wine, thoughtfully selected from small producers in far-flung corners of France. Snag a seat at the copper-topped bar and pair your wine with their plates of unpretentious French bistro fare. And while no English is spoken, you’ll get by on a little high school French. Le Verre Volé à Tokyo is the ideal venue for a leisurely boozy meal – without any brusque French attitude.
