In our two previous posts as the feature of this month October 2012, we picked up two nice restaurants with each unique value.
For those who have not checked them, here we post the links for these two restaurants.
- Upscale Japanese restaurant operated by a famous luxury Ryokan (Japanese traditional inn) in Wakura Onsen, Hokuriku.
- Casual restaurant offering Western style dishes with fine Japanese seafood.
At the end of the month, we would like to add a few more lunch options for Tokyo Bigsight visit briefly.
3. Akitsu, western style buffet
Sometimes, you might not be able to reach consensus on what to eat with your accommpanying people. Tired with Japanese food? but what to have, pasta, steak or some vegetable dishes? still miss Japanese taste a little? or just hungry?
In that case, we recommend a buffet style restaurant Akitsu. It is a typical and casual restaurant that everyone can imagine as a Western style buffet service.
The buffet menu offers mainly Italian pasta and variety of small side dishes from Western meat plate to Japanese cooked vegetable. Try some unfamilar dishes or take some vege plates to keep your health balance.
Don't miss to take some nice pieces of bread there too, because the restaurant's owner is a baker doing wholesale of its high quality products to some hotels.
Restaurant name: Akitsu
Address: 2nd floor, Wanza Ariake Bay Mall East Wing, 3-1 Ariake, Koto-ku, Tokyo
*5 minutes walk from Tokyo Bigsight

4. Blend Meister Cafe
The German inspired cafe (as name shown) is on the ground floor of Sunroute Ariake Hotel. It is also a five minute walk from Tokyo Bigsight as well as the nearest station behind Panasonic Center.
The price less than Yen 1000 for lunch set is not expensive like a typical cafe accommodated in a hotel but the cozy blight space is comfortable as much as some space like a typical hotel lounge etc. We understand that the cafe is often busy with business people working in the area for lunch time 12h-13h during weekday.
The lunch set is quite typical for business people in Tokyo. It offers Western style pasta or meat, fish plates as maindish with green salad side dish and self-service free drink and soup.
Need to be mentioned is that the cafe is pround of the skilled "barista" serving the best quality of coffee.
In the international convention area, it is also a scarce option that brings you relaxing time with familiar choices and taste.
For evening time, the cafe promotes some selections of prize-awarded draft beer. So it can be used to chill out after the convention visit before going back to central area.
Restaurant name: Blend Meister Cafe
Address: Hotel Sunroute 1st floor, 3-6-6 Ariake, Koto-ku, Tokyo
