Drop by and enjoy delicious Italian fare in a casual setting.
At Zen you can enjoy a delicious array of Italian dishes prepared by the owner-chef, who used to work for a French restaurant in Tokyo. Pasta with rich-tasting soft shell shrimp, olive oil, garlic and chili is among the most popular items at the restaurant. Another pasta dish made with suuchikaa (Okinawan-style bacon) is also a must-try. Although his specialty is Italian cuisine, the chef does not stick to Italian recipes alone, and he even delights customers’ taste buds with Japanese sashimi plates garnished with wasabi when he has very fresh, quality fish on hand.
The chef felt that the laidback style of Italian cooking better matched his personality and made a big career change from French to Italian cooking. He says, “I wanted to create a place with a friendly, country-like atmosphere, where people can easily drop by while bar hopping around the neighborhood.” Renowned for its great food and casual, comfortable setting, this popular restaurant is crowded with patrons almost as soon as it opens at 18:00.
