Restaurant Review: Aux Bacchanales

A group of us stopped at this French themed restaurant/cafe after finishing a 10K race around the Tokyo Imperial Palace grounds called Aux Bacchanales.  The restaurant is located in the glitzy Ginza area and I felt a bit out of place wearing athletic clothing in this very fashionable area of Tokyo.  But I was with a bunch of other grungy Americans, so I wasn’t the only one standing out.


Although the place was a bit pricey, the atmosphere and food were great.  I ordered a pumpkin soup, quiche and pecan tart pie, all excellent.  The total price for these three items came to about 2,000 yen (US$25).  I only drank water, so that kept the bill on the lower end.  There was also a bakery off the side of the restaurant that had a wide variety of baked breads.  I would recommend this place if you are looking for something light to eat, have a drink with friends, or want a coffee break with some all too tempting pies and pastries.  Also, a nice place for people watching.
