If you haven’t booked a table yet for Summer Restaurant Week 2018, no problem. This summer the twice-yearly prix fixe meal deal runs through August 17, making it more of a restaurant month than week.
If you, like me, were saddened to learn about the demolition of the iconic Main Building of the Hotel Okura in 2015, there’s intriguing news. Tokyo’s Ashai Shimbun reports that the building’s midcentury lobby, widely hailed as a masterpiece of Japanese modernist architecture, is to be faithfully reproduced in the towering new Okura hotel that’s […]
