Unique and Memorable: Tapas Molecular Bar

Tapas Molecular Bar is in Nihonbashi, on the 38th floor of the Oriental Lounge, near the Mitsukoshimae station. This restaurant is probably the most impressive in terms of presentation and surprise-factor!

This restaurant only has eight seats and is a one-Michelin starred restaurant. Eating here is a two-hour experience, where the chef slowly serves you bite-sized dishes that will stimulate the eyes and the palate.

The course starts at ¥17,000 and offers a variety of small dishes. Each dish can be a great conversation-starter, so this is a fantastic date option if you're still getting to know your date.

Great Wine: Apero Wine Bar

Located in Aoyama, This place is beautiful! It has large window walls from which you get a peaceful view of the townscape. it's decorated stylishly and has changing ikebana ornaments as a centrepiece. If it were just for the ambiance it would be worth going, but on top of that, Apero serves great organic foods (french bistro style appetizers mostly) and really fine wines.

The wines are a bit on the pricey side (¥1,500 for a glass and ¥5,000 for a bottle), but hey, it's a date! Apero is the ideal spot for a enjoying a night of conversation with your special someone.

Daytime Date: 512 Cafe

512 Cafe & Grill is a cozy spot to take your date to for brunch or an afternoon snack. The specialty here is the brule pancakes, which the two of you can share as you stare lovingly into each other's eyes (too much?).

The Brule Pancakes comes with 3 pancakes, 2 scoops of ice cream, whipped cream, and blueberry sauce. Before cooking the pancake, the chef adds meringue to the mix which is why the pancake is so incredibly fluffy and soft. Yum.

512 Cafe & Grill is only 4 minutes from Nogizaka Station and 6 minutes from Roppongi Station.
