Dean & Deluca opened a restaurant (with cafe) in Kyoto at the end of October 2014. This restaurant will close at the end of next August. So, for those who like their food/drink, it might be a good idea to visit this spot for lunch or dinner.
The location is very nice. It is conveniently located right in the center of Kyoto City, near the Karasuma Street -Takoyakushi Street intersection. If staying at a hotel near Karasuma – Oike station, such as Hearton Hotel, Hotel Monterey, Mitsui Garden Hotel Sanjyo, or Kyoto Garden Hotel, this restaurant might be a great option.
It is a casual restaurant, but the classic style building will make for a special foodie experience. And they boast weekly course menus for lunch & diner which use an abundance of Kyoto local food. Sharing a dish with family members/friends is recommended.
Lunch 11:00 – 15:00. Dinner 17:00 – 23:00. Closed on Wednesdays.
The Cafe section prepares seasonal drinks and Kyoto-limited food menus such as a buttermilk chicken sandwich and an ahi tuna burger. 11:00 – 19:00. Closed on Wednesdays.
