Otowa Restaurant - 宇都宮のフレンチ

先日宇都宮で食事をする機会が出来て、otowa restaurantを予約して出かけた。

I had to visit Utsunomiya the other day, and managed to book for a dinner at Otowa Restaurant. A simple RC box appearance and as we were guided in, the interior appeared as a modern retreat with plain décor, and this space perfectly matched with my taste. Unlike restaurants in Tokyo with tight tables, here everything is spacious and comfortably relaxing. Monsieur Otowa showed up with a mild smile and we had a friendly conversation. He was born in this area. The course menu we had consisted of salmon and potato salad, veges/scallops émulsionnés, agneau rôti, and apple bavarois, all prepared with a great care, and the progress of quality taste was truly enjoyable. I picked a bottle of Haut-Bages Averous 1999 from the list which was mainly a collection of second labels and some very affordable options. I would say their price would be very attractive if they shrink it by 15-20%, but the entire cost of 30 thousand for two of us was worth the visit.
