With a top-shelf Nishi-Azabu location, a plush interior and a menu boasting the likes of French duck, new restaurant-lounge Vin (B1, 1-2-12 Nishi-Azabu, Minato-ku; http://r.gnavi.co.jp/ga0r700) might seem like the playground of the rich and glamorous. Think again. Glasses of wine start at just ¥500, while kushiyaki skewers of chicken, pork and duck go for ¥130-¥220 per stick. Vin offers a dozen bottles of wine for just ¥2,000, and course dinners ring in at ¥2,500~¥4,500. À la carte items range from housemade liver mousse (¥480) to garlic-stewed shrimp (¥680) and grilled wagyu (¥980 for 100g). The lunch menu, meanwhile, starts at just ¥780 and features dishes like ginger-fried pork and “mixed grill” with vegetables and baguette.
