Madame Cirque Brasserie Shinjuku Reviews
Jun 05, 2007
The design theme of the restaurant is funky French circus, with gawdy accessories like a giant pink chandelier, swirly candy colored booths, mounted fake tiger's heads, and a blue elephant overlooking the bar. I think most of the girls who walk in say, "omygod!!! how cute~~~" The majority of the clientele were young women.
I started with an iced peach mint tea. It's a refreshing mint tea that comes with a tiny pitcher of peach-infused syrup. Delicious!!!! It made me want to try making it at home.
My two friends and I shared the hor's douvres combo, which included smoked salmon, cured meats, pate, and vegetables on top of salad greens. Then we had rosemary french fries, seared tuna and avocado salad, and pumpkin gnocchi. For dessert, we shared a chocolate crepe and a banana caramel crepe.
The ambience is quiet and pleasant despite the flashy decor. French pop music plays softly in the background and the two servers were very low key. Interesting place, but it needs a little more pizazz in their food. With such a cool interior, I expected more adventurous menu items.
The total bill was around 6900 yen.
