Lisa and I are eating at the Tapas Molecular Bar at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Nihombashi (map) on Tuesday night at 2030 (I think! Subject to confirmation from 'the Boss' - Now confirmed!). Think El Bulli or The Fat Duck for the nature of the food.

Part One
Part Two

There's some controversy at eGullet that this restaurant (can you call six chairs a restaurant?) plagiarises a Washington DC restaurant called Minibar where the chef Jeff Ramsey used to work (even down to the number of seats). Not sure how I feel about the idea that restaurant concepts and dishes should be subject to IP protection, though I do have some sympathy for the argument that chefs undertake an effective apprenticeship and therefore imitation may initially be their aspiration.

Will have more to say once I've eaten there, and [livejournal.com profile] lilitufire can, of course, compare with her Fat Duck experience.
