Mifune is now offering outdoor dining

August 11, 2020, 12:41.39 am ET  

MIFUNE, the Michelin-recognized Japanese restaurant that focuses on modern Washoku cuisine, has officially opened for al fresco dining and launched a new Bistro Patio menu. The menu has been created by the restaurant’s Executive Chef tag team Yuu Shimano (Guy Savoy’s eponymous three Michelin-starred restaurant in Paris) and Tomohiro Urata (three Michelin-starred La Maison Troisgros in Roanne) and will spotlight their signature style using French techniques to inspire guests this summer. The lovely outdoor patio, which is set in the front of the restaurant, features 32 seats and canopies perfect for rain or shine.

The curated menu begins with a selection of appetizers such as the Black Angus Beef Tataki, served with a ponzu sesame sauce and Octopus Frites, served under a green bean salad tossed in a Japanese onion dressing and a roasted red pepper-yuzu kosho sauce. The Vichyssoise is a chilled potato cream soup that is topped with a duck consommé gelée, served with potato crisps and adorned with caviar.  House Smoked Trout is a neighborhood favorite and this rendition is served with a Gribiche sauce, an emulsified mixture of hard-boiled eggs and mustard.

Main courses are featured with a spotlight on the Squid Ink Seafood Bouillabaisse Rice, which is topped with a medley of vegetables and seafood such as shrimp, octopus and clams, and speckled with dollops of creamy lobster aioli. Whiting Tempura is the perfect summer fish dish and served with sauce vierge, made with olive oil, lemon juice, chopped tomatoes and chopped herbs. For steak lovers, the Black Angus Skirt Steak is cooked to perfection and lightly dressed in a Béarnaise sauce with pomme frites maison. 

Finish the meal with one of Chef Urata’s rotating dessert creations.

Signature cocktails include the Stray Dog (gin, Skinos Mastiha liqueur, cucumber, pineapple and lemongrass) and Oharu (Lychee-cello, Dassai 45 Nigori Sake, Grapefruit and Orange Blossom). A selection of draft beers, wines and sakes are also available.

MIFUNE Happy Hour is available from 4pm-6pm Tuesday-Saturday and featuring cocktails for $10 each.
