Path, Tokyo, Japan
Vinyl records, a wood and cement bar, a small terrace for smokers and a young team made up of former La Maison Troisgros staff members. Much like its numerous hipster counterparts in Portland and Brooklyn, Path is a café/bakery/bistro, open from 8am to midnight, in a neighborhood near Yoyogi park that’s on the rise. Up for grabs: homemade viennoiseries (croissants, pain au chocolat) and Hand Drip coffee for breakfast; delicious pancakes with burrata and cured ham for brunch; curry rice with vegetables, beef or chicken at lunch; and things like cuttlefish beignets with aïoli or quinoa-pomegranate salads for dinner. The pastries crafted by Yuichi Goto are also excellent: whipped meringue with fruit jelly, cannelés, madeleines, etc. To drink, there’s beer on tap from a small brewer in Kyoto, natural French and Japanese wines, kombucha (homemade fermented tea), freshly made fruit juices and coffees from the Norwegian roaster Fuglen. Count on around ¥1,000 to ¥2,000 (€8 to €16) at lunch and ¥6,000 (€48.50) at dinner. Reservations recommended at night.
