Media Reception at the Park Hyatt introducing the 2022 Summer Special Menu.
Selected members of the English-language media were invited for a special treat at the elegant Park Hyatt Tokyo. An annual tradition, the hotel introduced a special Summer menu for the hungry journalists who enjoyed the remarkable view from GIRANDOLE, Park Hyatt’s signature restaurant located on the 41st floor.
We, from HERSEY, enjoyed the Pintade d’Amakusa, the “Queen of Poultry,” that evening prepared by the new head chef who just started a month ago. The evening’s menu is part of special menus introduced at each of Park Hyatt’s restaurants this Summer. We started off with excellent glass of Champagne, followed by an accompanying glass of white wine which went very well with the tender poultry. You can read the full menu details below.
Needless to say, all attending journalists enjoyed themselves with high expectations for the next culinary experience at the Park Hyatt Tokyo.
For our readers, we highly recommend diving deep into the menus below and enjoying an evening of excellent food and drinks with a view of Tokyo only the Park Hyatt Tokyo can offer.
NEW YORK GRILL “From Olive to Beef”
This season, New York Grill will feature “Olive-fed Wagyu Beef,” a premium Sanuki beef prepared in harmonious agricultural farming, years of perfecting the balance during the feeding and overall process. First, olives are grown and pressed for oil, and then the leftovers are fed to the local cattle who fertilize the olive trees. Nothing goes to waste in this cycle. Instead, Chef Paul Gajewski and his team ensure a rich, buttery, supremely marbled meat with a high oleic content to improve the tenderness and umami flavor. This sustainable farming process coincides with Park Hyatt
Tokyo’s ethos and values. Cocktails and snacks featuring local olives will also be prepared at New York Bar.
Validity: From Wednesday, July 6 to Wednesday, August 31, 2022
Price: 4-course dinner at JPY 19,800 / 5-course dinner JPY 23,100 (inclusive of tax and subject to a service charge)
GIRANDOLE “Pintade d’Amakusa”
At Girandole, Chef Kojiro Tsutsumi offers a French pure-bred pintade dinner brought from Amakusa, Kumamoto. This guineafowl, known as the “Queen of Poultry,” is raised with a special diet, including local oyster shells and seaweed. The dish is rich in minerals and calcium, providing tenderness with a bountiful flavor known for overcoming summer heat and furnishing iron and vitamins. The meal will be plated with vegetables harvested from the same region.

KOZUE “Taste of Summer – Roots of Kyoto”
Kozue’s menu is focused on traditional vegetables known as Kyo-yasai, which have unique shapes, vivid colors, and high nutritional value. Kyoto has a long history and gained a reputation for cultivating exceptional vegetables in the temperate climate and rich soil. This summer, you can enjoy them along with pike conger, known for their strong vitality, and feel the element of the alluring “Kyo” food culture while in Tokyo.
