Celebrating its 90th anniversary in 2017, Hotel New Grand is the oldest hotel in Yokohama. Located on its fifth floor is restaurant Le Normandie which boasts sophisticated and elegant interior reminiscent of a dining room on a luxury liner. The restaurant is at the same height as one of the liner’s decks, allowing for unobstructed views over Yamashita Park, and the harbor and ocean beyond.
Le Normandie prides itself on providing authentic Western fare, but a touch of fusion may be best – their steak marries tender Japanese beef fillet with a smooth Madeira sauce to add some character. The dessert du jour changes regularly, but is always worth asking about.
