UPDATE JANUARY 2012: Sadly Guest House Cono has now closed.
Last Wednesday was the anniversary of the day Mewby and I first started dating… Time for a big posh swanky dinner! I let Mewby choose the venue this time and she chose Guest House Cono. Contrary to the name it’s not a guesthouse. It is in fact a big posh swanky restaurant. The interior is simple, soft-lighted, elegant comfort and the only decoration is occasional Buddhist statuary. I’m not sure why. Maybe the Buddha’s presence is meant to have a calming effect. Anyway, we had a private room which was very comfy.
Now, the food was gorgeous. We chose the Awase course which consists of the following:
And then a choice of meat or fish for your main course. I went for the lobster which was magnificent.
Mewby, however, likes her meat.
And then of course you’ve got to have cake, haven’t you?
It is enough to say the word “Shiawase!” was a constant refrain throughout the meal. And all that plus a nice bottle of Californian Chardonnay set me back just 15,000 yen or thereabouts. For the perfect anniversary dinner? Bargain!
Lunch: 11:30 ~ 15:00
My apologies to Mewby for constantly interrupting dinner to take pictures of the food.
It’s what I do.
