Hilton Tokyo, one of the oldest international-brand hotels in the Japanese capital, has closed all four restaurants on the second floor to make room for a new dining concept.
Two of these outlets, French restaurant Le Pergolèse and Mediterranean buffet venue Checkers, will cease to exist while the Chinese and Japanese restaurants will reopen with new concepts and designs. A grill restaurant as well as a bar/lounge will also be introduced. The four oulets will make up the new 570-seat “Tsunohazu” restaurant floor, scheduled to launch this November.
The renovation is helmed by Nao Taniyama, a local food and beverage designer whose past projects include French Michelin-star restaurant Dominique Bouchet Ginza.
The second-floor renewal project is the latest revamp initiative by the hotel, following extensive refurbishment of its guestrooms, executive lounge, lobby, marble lounge, ballroom, fitness centre and business centre between 2006 and 2009. The function rooms and wedding chapel were also renovated in 2012.
