Photo Friday – Brand Restaurants Chanel & Hermès

It seems some of the Doll readers also love brand.  :-D I am more happy to share my fun experience with my friend Alice then! After we had lunch at the Gucci cafe we went to Chanel’s restaurant.

Chanel Restaurant – Beige

Beige is the name of the restaurant that sits upon the top floor and rooftop of Chanel’s Ginza store (website). Because the weather was still moderately pleasant they only had the rooftop open, which is great since the design of the indoors didn’t seem as nice. However Alice and I would have been straightjacket looneybin mad to actually EAT at Beige. Beige for dinner STARTS at 13000 yen a person (around $160.00). Lunch is slightly more acceptable, starting at 5000 yen a person (around $75.00).

Can we have a moment? JESUS CHRIST!!  :icon_eek:  :icon_eek:  :icon_eek: TOO EXPENSIVE!

I’ve eaten at some wonderful renowned restaurants: Mario Batali’s B&B and Buchon and the like. However dinner at Mario Batali’s B&B for a main course and salad is $60.00. Alice and I had serious doubts any food would be orgasmic enough to spend $75.00 STARTING on…FOR LUNCH. However they do serve desserts so one day we might go for only that. *shakes my pennies together*

But my friend Alice did get macaroons, so we did go up to the rooftop to purchase and enjoy the atmosphere.  :up:

That the buttons had the Coco mark gave me way too much glee.

The casual rooftop setting.

 

Over the champagne bar there's Tokyo Tower.

 

OH WAIT WHAT'S THAT!?!?! An entire logo wall of 3-d steel Coco marks? Stop drooling!

The manicured shubbery and reflecting pool below.

 

As the sun went down the view got even prettier.

Ms. Coco was below in the window display, quietly approving.

I want to go back just for the Coco wall  :) If you ask, I do believe you can go up to the rooftop without buying anything to look. Although you have to ask the attendant in the office to the side of the Chanel store (not the in main store) and she will unlock the elevator for you.

Another blogger posted some pictures of her meal and the inside of Beige, the meal looks amazing, the inside not as amazing… :worries:


Hermès Cafe

Sadly Hermès restaurant was undergoing renovations and they only had their cafe open which was squirreled away in a corner near the tableware. It did seem like a quiet place to sit during shopping, but it was dark and nothing to really photograph.

Alice ordered a cake, but it seemed a bit unremarkable. I ordered an espresso and was pleasantly surprised.

Hermès cutlery of course.

 

Birkin chocolates!! So cute!!! Totally made the visit worthwhile.

That was my tour of brand restaurants in Tokyo. There’s still a Swarovski one I’d like to visit, and hopefully Hermès will open their restaurant for lunch. I definitely want to go back to Gucci’s! All together I spent around 3300 yen (around $44.00) for lunch and coffee. Which is not so bad for some great memories and delicious brand items.  :upheart: Alice and I felt so posh that day  :wink:

    ah!!!! The Chanel exterior is soo nice and I love how the chairs and decor of the terrace was very much like Chanel’s clean polished look. The Chanel logo lift buttons also cracked me up, its such a cute touch.
    Aww, it would have been nice to take a look at the Hermes cafe but the Birkin chocolates are definitely a sweet touch. I can’t wait to see you go back to Gucci and to visit the Swarovski cafe!

    I think people from all over the world love brands and Japan is lucky to have all the big luxury brands available in most of its large cities. Nowhere more so than Ginza, in Tokyo, which is the home to high-end brands in Japan.

    I’m impressed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s equally educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy that I found this in my hunt for something concerning this.
