Grand Hyatt Tokyo, located in Roppongi Hills, is the idyllic locale for romance. The hotel, known for its first class service and luxurious environment, is celebrating Valentine’s Day with a focus on the most romantic of fruits, the humble strawberry. Grand Hyatt Tokyo’s legendary and much-loved restaurant, The Oak Door, plays host to a specially curated Valentine’s menu which consists of dishes including pan-seared scallops with red strawberry salsa and Schrenckii caviar, and pan-fried foie gras with homemade strawberry jam and brioche toast – the fusion between the sweetness of the jam and fattiness of the foie gras complement each other perfectly. Another standout dish is Canadian prime beef tenderloin with a strawberry beef reduction made with veal stock, red wine and fresh strawberries.
Helmed by acclaimed chef Patrick Shimada, The Oak Door is pulling out all the stops for its guests with this menu, which also includes a sumptuous cold strawberry soup topped with white strawberries and strawberry sorbet and cocktails dusted with strawberry powder. The opulent four-course dinner is a quintessential celebration of love and romance and a chance for you to wine and dine a special loved one in your life.
The Oak Door’s renewal last year adds to the space’s intimacy with the addition of white oak chandeliers, which bring warm lighting to the formal dining space. Leather booth seating and new ceiling fixtures have also been added to the bar to create a more relaxed and intimate atmosphere, suited for a romantic Valentine’s night. As an added bonus, diners can send their Valentine’s message in advance — the message will be presented in a special envelope sealed with wax at the dinner’s finale. The Oak Door will also offer a complimentary after-dinner drink(s) at the bar to couples who book online.
It’s no secret that Japanese love Valentine’s Day, with confectionery companies and bakeries selling products for the domestic market weeks and months prior to the big day. Grand Hyatt Tokyo’s Fiorentina Pastry Boutique, situated in the hotel’s lobby, is also getting in on the act, with an assortment of lavish chocolates and sweets including chocolate-covered strawberries, award-winning bon bon chocolates and two different kinds of long baton chocolates made with naturally-pink ruby chocolate and sweet chocolate that allows guests to include customized messages. These chocolates make perfect gifts for loved ones and close friends who deserve a touch of sweetness in their lives.
Grand Hyatt Tokyo’s Valentine’s Day dinner and curated confectionery, then, is the perfect opportunity to treat and lavish attention onto your loved one in a resplendent and elegant environment in the beating heart of the city. Snap up a reservation as it’s sure to sell out well before February 14.
