Bird Land Tokyo & Claude Dugat 09

A good name for a yakitori shop and the staff are exceptional and do their very best to accommodate the clients coming and going and waiting. This is a one star Michelin and is relatively expensive given the atmosphere, and seems westernized to the degree of no return.

They serve an original beer (August) and have a decent wine list where you can find Claude Dugat 2009, which we tried. The wine was showing some age and the fruit a little past its best moment yet it served its purpose.

The yakitori quality is good and you can see for yourself, cartilage, breast, leg, etc. They do use a sumi-binchotan charcoal but I felt that the foods were grilled over an electric element.

They served a westernized mix of fare including a cabbage with a truffle salt, a chemical delight and a donburi egg topped rice and chicken bowl at the finish.
