Opened May 10 in Shinjuku, Pollo (5-10-15 Shinjuku; http://r.gnavi.co.jp/ga5b000) “offers a dining experience for groups to enjoy delicious hinaidori dishes at a reasonable price.” The specialties of the house are kushiyaki sticks of the famed Akita-bred chicken, supplemented by an á la carte menu that features a range of Europe-inspired dishes and international wines. A good place to start is the ¥2,980 course dinner, which includes an appetizer platter, salad, chicken carpaccio, and five skewers; add ¥200 for a cheese onigiri and ¥300 for dessert. There’s also seasonal vegetables with bagna cauda (¥650), frittata (¥450), and spinach with dried fruits and gorgonzola sauce (¥700), as well as offbeat fusion fare like kombu with cream cheese (¥390). Wines start at just ¥2,000 per bottle, and spumante at ¥500 a glass.
