Back in Japan (July 2012)...Lunch at FARO Slow Time in Ginza

I had lunch appointments in Ginza district two days in a row.
On the contrary to the previous day’s elegant Japanese kaiseki lunch at a tiny restaurant, it was a bistro-style French dining on the 11th floor of Shiseido building.  The place is called FARO Slow Time, and the restaurant has a nice panoramic view of Ginza and lively open kitchen.

We had their lunch course.

Salad Nicoise was topped with very slow-cooked tuna.  It was so moist and the texture was almost like chicken tender.  It was very much my kind of Nicoise salad!  Seabass poele also had a very nice pure quality.

Braised pork shoulder in white wine was so tender and beautiful.  Cheese cake and vanilla ice cream.

Very high-standard lunch. I wish we had a casual French dining at this level of quality in LA.
