Welcome to Crony.
Crony was the memorable food highlight of our four day trip to Japan this past summer. To be honest, I hadn’t expected to have such incredible food this trip (see previous post to see why). However, just as chance would have it, the folks at Crony reached out to me about a month before my Japan trip. Would I like to try Crony sometime? The timing worked out perfectly, so we arranged a celebratory dinner at Crony in honor of my friend’s birthday in early July.
Crony is a high-end French restaurant that applies influences from Scandinavia and North America to Japanese ingredients. Crony (クローニー) translates to a “forever friend with whom you enjoy tea”. The three friends who founded Crony wanted the restaurant to embody this concept . . . a place enjoy a cup of tea with your best friend and hang out for hours, regardless of whether you’re talking or not.
The restaurant opened less than two years ago, yet has already gained a coveted Michelin star.
