A specialty Spanish restaurant with a true "marisqueria" feel
La Pesquera -MARISQUERIA- is a seafood restaurant where you can enjoy seafood from throughout Japan, including Tokyo's legendary Tsukiji fish market, and around the world. The seafood platters with oyster varieties that change by season, served year-round, are a particular favorite. Especially recommended are "paella" and "caldoso" which is prepared after an order is placed and cooked with the finest ingredients. As a restaurant specializing in Spanish cuisine, La Pesquera -MARISQUERIA- provides greater in its chosen genre than does "RIGOLETTO".
Be sure to order this platter ? an assortment of sashimi, Spanish-style! The seafood platter is full of fresh seafood from various regions, ranging from shrimp, crab and oysters to fish. Choose from two sauces, a Japanese sauce based on the chef's specially prepared soy sauce and a Spanish vinaigrette, with a garnish of wasabi. Enjoy with a glass of white wine.
The tapas concept originated in Spain, and this is where the fun of a Spanish bar food begins. At La Pesquera -MARISQUERIA-, all tapas are available at a fixed price of 300 yen or 500 yen. Popular tapas include boquerones (pickled sardines); Galician-style octopus; guindilla peppers, a bar favorite; and ajillo (dishes cooked in garlic oil), the restaurant's most popular item. The color of Spain shines through in this rich lineup of appetizers.
Paella is Spain's signature rice dish. La Pesquera -MARISQUERIA-'s paella is cooked individually for each order on a special paella pan. Eight variations of paella are on offer, ranging from the seafood paella, a perennial favorite, paellas brimming with seasonal ingredients and hearty meat paellas to a luxurious lobster paella. At dinnertime, Besides Paella, we also have a variety of "Arroz Caldoso" ( brothy rice with a flavorsome soup). Don't missit!
Txakoli is a slightly sparkling wine that hails from Spain's Basque region. The fruit has a refreshing acidity that gives this wine a light flavor. To encourage bubbling, txakoli is poured from a height into a wide-brimmed glass called "bodega". Exceedingly delicate and produced only in small quantities, txakoli is difficult to ship, and until recently this precious wine could only be drunk in the Basque area. Its uplifting taste is said to be the best wine to accompany seafood. Be sure to try a glass!
Bringing out the natural flavor of seafood
Just as our name suggests, Pesquera is committed to seafood. Along with Japan's four distinct seasons, we aim to provide the best fresh seafood and vegetables. Spanish cuisine is quite simple when it comes to seasoning, which makes it easier to add other flavors. However I try my best to keep the dish simple, without adding too much, so that the diners can enjoy the natural flavor of the seafood. I hope our diners can experience and discover new and unique dishes.
Making a restaurant that adults can use anytime
Our restaurant concept is new, so I would like to tell not only of the freshness of the foods but also of the fresh and exciting concepts of this restaurant. Most of the guests that come to Otemachi are businessmen. They have mature tastes and vast experiences in high dining. So I concentrate to offer only the best cocktails. In our spacious restaurant we have a lively bar yet in the dining space you can enjoy a relaxed dinner. Versatile, La Pesquera is always an excellent choice any time for any occasion.
