Restaurant details
Reviewed 9 August 2014

This is one of my favorite restaurants. I have a tremendous weekness for French food and the Japanese sometimes do French cuisine better than the French themselves, yet Sale Poivre ("salt and pepper") stands out. Uno-san does not prepare nouveau cuisine with sauce that's been flash frozen using liquid nitrogen, but he does lovingly prepare large portions of traditional bistrot food using fresh in-season ingredients, and the prices are very reasonable relative to the quality. They have a very good selection of reasonably priced wine, and if you like digestifs you will love his small yet well-balanced selection of Cognac, Armagnac and Marc, and his pours are very generous. Most reviews on Tabelog as well as the one other review here in Japanese almost exclusively talk about Sale Poivre's set meals that offer incredibly good value, but you also owe it to yourself to try their ala carte fair. The sea urchin flan and duck confit are fabulous, as is the charcutery and cheese plates. There is also a wide selection of seasonable fair. You simply cannot go wrong here.
