Arukecchiano

■Where Italian Meets Incredible Shonai Ingredients<br><br>This Italian restaurant showed Japan that local regions such as Shonai, have incredible food hidden. Chef Okuda, who sources his ingredients daily from local producers with whom he has developed a close relationship with. Chef Okuda believes that simple cooking preparation best brings out the delicious flavors of the local ingredients. The ingredients decide the menu of the day. One day, yellowtail caught on Shonai beach becomes carpaccio. Shonai beef with locally gathered wild plants create beef tagliata the next day. <br><br>Above: The restaurant’s Specialty - Fritter with the local “Gassan” bamboo shoot rolled in cured ham. <br>The marriage of sweet bamboo and the salty ham results in an exceptional appetizer.

My husband and I visited Al Checciano recently and were very impressed. Reservations are a must here, so we made ours a week early. Unlike most Japanese restaurants, they asked about food allergies at the reservation time. As I have some minor allergies this was a very nice touch for me.
The food was amazing. We had a wonderful meal with the set menu. We had carpaccio, risotto, salad, and the pasta of our choice, plus local beef. Two types of dessert were brought to the table so my husband and I could taste a bit of each others. Coffee or herbal tea rounded out our meal. Many of the ingredients came from the local area so freshness is a given.
The service was generally good. The only negative thing about the evening was the drinks we were offered early on, weren't included in the meal, they were charged on top of the set price.
Dinner for two, excluding the extra drinks was reasonable for a special night out. A very nice meal.

Il Checciano

Reviewed By seijisan - Kawasaki, Japan

ディナーだと、アルケッチャーノは接待や商談、家族の特別な食事という使われ方ですが、こちらはお洒落なレストラン。カジュアルとは言ってもデート向きとしては十分です。お腹いっぱい食べれば値段もそれなりです。
こちらはいわゆるイタリアンなメニューです。

Sohsaku Ryori Mizuno Shokutaku Hyakken Bori

Reviewed By stellastarstruck - Tsuruoka, Japan

Hyakken Bori is a very good restaurant on the Keio University grounds. It is a Japanese-style restaurant with lovely views, reasonable priced dishes and delicious Japanese food.
The staff is generally excellent and very helpful, although they don't speak much English. The menu is written mostly in kanji so go with a Japanese-reading friend if that is a problem for you. At the moment they have a very reasonable lunch special that costs less than ¥1000 including coffee or tea (but not dessert), as well as other dishes.
They often serve local dishes with a gourmet flare and they are very good. For holidays and special occasions they have quite reasonable special menus, not cheap, but good value for money. We took advantage of their Christmas special last year and it was excellent...a feast for the eyes as well as the stomach.
There is free parking available near the restaurant.

Gourmet Sushi-Go-Round Kantaro Tsuruoka

Reviewed By Dondinou

This sushi restaurant is extremely good.
The amount of fish on the rice is just unbelievable.
The taste of the fishes is also pretty good for a very reasonable price.
Would recommend if you have a car or if you take the bus to the "Shonai Kankobussankan" bus stop.

Nezameya Hanbee

Reviewed By wenkopin - Tokyo, Japan

麦切りとは麺類なのだが、その形態は饂飩でも、蕎麦でも、素麺でも、冷麦でも、ラーメンでもない麺で、鶴岡以外の地域では、まず食べることも出来ない食材、鶴岡市の郷土料理でもある。
麦切りの太さは饂飩よりも細く、どちらかと言えば稲庭うどんに近い太さで、のど越しはツルツルなのに麺はモチモチでコシがある感じ。
蕎麦の様にのど越しで食べる麺だ。
麦切り屋さんの寝覚屋半兵衛では、その麦切りと蕎麦を合盛で提供していて、双方の触感の違いを楽しみながら食べることができる。
価格帯も、比較的庶民の懐には優しく、3人前の麦切り+蕎麦で2200円(2017年7月現在)。
店内には椅子席とお座敷席の両方があった。
個人的な感想では、蕎麦よりも麦切りの方が断然美味しかったので、次回行くならば麦切りオンリーで食したいと思うが、初めて麦切りを食べるならば、その違いを実感できる合盛がお勧めだろう。

Fruit Shop Aomoriya

Reviewed By YoroNikki - Yamagata Prefecture, Japan

This fruit shop has a coffee shop upstairs serving fruit tarts and drinks. The modern white interior on three levels lend the cafe a bright atmosphere, even on a grey day. The fruit tarts are very good, with seasonal fruits however they only have a limited amount each day, both times i visited late afternoon I bought the last few slices. The tarts are light and pastry flakey with cream cheese, custard and cream variations. I choose burnt sugar and banana, there was also a very fancy slice of mango tart. A cake and drink set will set costs between 700 to 900 yen or so, depending on the fruit on the tart. An excellent place for a nice quiet afternnoon tea. Note, the coffee shop is upstairs and as is usual in Japan not to spacious so if you have luggwge i recommend you keace it at the starion if you cannot carry it up stairs easily.

Chinese Soba Kompiraso

Reviewed By tmysrht - United States

Be aware! You may need to line up for hours - often hundreds of people at peak time. Unique hand-made flat noodle that holds over 50% water. Soup base is pork, chicken and fish, plus some flavor of dried squid. Not too salty, just right. Note it is likely closed as ramen restaurant between June and Sep. It operates only as a hotel during summer.
