スカイツリー近くのミズマチにあるニューヨークにあるレストラン Jack’s Wife Freda です。日本初上陸のお店でやっとチャンスが出来たので行ってみました (今は六本木にも店舗があるようです)。

お店の中の雰囲気はニューヨーク感満載で、ちゃんとインテリアが工夫されていました。更に店員さんも外国人の方で(日本人もいました)、それも海外感を演出してくれていました(日本語でメニュー注文出来ます)。ちゃんと世界観がまとまっていて、日本テイストになっていなかったのが個人的にとても良かったです。この手のお店ではどうしてもどこか日本向けに味付けされて、オリジナル感が損なわれるのですが、ここはそういう感じがほとんどしませんでした。もちろん、椅子やテーブルはもしかしたら日本人に合わせたサイズになっているかもしれません。でも、いかにもで揃えられた感じではなくちゃんと世界観がまとまっている事がとても居心地が良かったです。

頼んだご飯も美味しく少々お値段張りますが、場所代含めてと思えば納得の値段です。
平日のお昼少し外した時間帯だったので、人が少なく快適でした (ミズマチ界隈も人が少ないくらい)。


Jack’s Wife Freda is a restaurant in New York located in Mizumachi near Tokyo Skytree. It was the first restaurant to land in Japan, and I finally had a chance to visit (there is now also a branch in Roppongi).

The atmosphere inside the restaurant was full of a New York feeling, and the interior design was well thought out. The staff were foreign (some were Japanese), which added to the foreign atmosphere (you can order the menu in Japanese). I personally liked the fact that the restaurant’s worldview was well organized and did not have a Japanese taste. In this type of restaurant, the atmosphere is always somewhat Japanese, which spoils the originality of the restaurant. Of course, the chairs and tables may have been sized to fit Japanese people. However, I was very comfortable with the fact that the restaurant’s worldview is not just a typical Japanese one, but rather a coherent one.

The food we ordered was delicious, and although it was a bit pricey, it was a reasonable price considering the cost of the place.
The restaurant was very comfortable and not too crowded since it was a weekday and a little after noon (the Mizumachi area is also not too crowded).

連日暑い日が続きますね。
年々夏が酷な暑さになるのはここ数年毎年感じていますが、この時期何よりも大事なのは水分補給ですね。
コンビニで日々ペットボトル買っていてはコストも嵩むばかりでいいこともないので、昨年夏に水筒を買いました。

探す時の条件は以下でした。
・軽い
・シンプルなデザイン
・洗いが超簡単

でした。この条件で探し回って巡り合ったのが KINTO WATER BOTTLE でした。


The hot days continue day after day.
I have felt that summer has been getting hotter and hotter every year for the past few years, but the most important thing during this time of the year is to stay hydrated.
(In Japan, It’s crazy hot summer in few years.)
Buying plastic bottles at the convenience store every day only adds to the cost and is not a good thing, so last summer I bought a water bottle.

I bought a KINTO WATER BOTTLE Smoke color.

When I was looking for a water bottle, my conditions were as follows.
Lightweight
Simple design
Easy to wash

I looked around a lot of bottle and finaly I found KINTO WATER BOTTLE.
