Enoteca Laura, Kagurazaka (エノテカ ラウラ 神楽坂), Tokyo

The Italian but very Japanese flavour dishes.

This Italian bistro is located near the shrine Akagi in upper Kagurazaka. They have just eight tables in the hall. The friendly three staffs will welcome you.
They cook the dishes from Japanese food. The seafood were come from Noto, Ishikawa and the meat, they served jibies(wild game) in winter season, were come from all over Japan. The canal was come from Kagoshima, the dear was come from Hokkaido and the beef was come from Iwate. The vegetable were  come from Kamakura. The dishes were served with Japanese seasonal ingredients.

The seasonal salad of the early summer

The Pasta and risotto are also nice. The rice keep a little bit hard in rice core. The sauce was wonderful with the essence of shrimp.The shell of shrimp was grilled till given crispy. The flavour, sweetness and texture of the shrimp will be satisfied with your sense.

They present the a la carte on the black board in Japanese.  But the floor staff may be able to speak in intermediate Italian. He will coordinate the course for you(Usually Japanese like to share and change the course on the table.)
In the early summer season, the fish named Isaki or striped pigfish was lovely. Some chef called this kind of fish as the black fish. The skin of Isaki is black. The flavour was very nice like Islay malt smokiness and seashore smell. The meat was very sweet and juicy. The grilled Isaki with sea salt and Somen noodle (vermicelli) were a common feature of my family in the early summer time in my childhood.

Grilled Isaki
They will serve so delicate Italian dishes as the real Japanese traditional dishes with well selected Italian wine. One of the best Italian in Tokyo as Attore Ginza.
