Bites: Blooming Delicious
he Westin Tokyo in Ebisu will be sakuradarake, or “awash with cherry blossoms,” this season with its annual Sakura Fair covering the entire venue: from cakes at the Deli (¥650) to hanami kaiseki at restaurant Mai and sakura mojitos (¥2,000) at The Bar. The cherry blossoms will be gathered in Kyushu, where they bloom earlier, and used to infuse culinary creations with a pink blush. Special menus are available March 20-April 6. Adding to the atmosphere, The Westin Garden will host cherry trees from all over Japan and landscape designer Kazuyuki Ishihara will give a demonstration in the lobby at 8:30pm on March 29. The time is right for a taste of spring.
