Ushigome-Kagurazaka: French
Gus (Ushigome-Kagurazaka: French)
Open 11:30am-1:30, 6-9pm (LO). Closed Sundays.

Satisfying home-style French cooking at terrific prices. The menu sticks to hearty classics such as buttery pork rillets with corchicons pickles, escargots sizzling in garlic butter and roast lamb in red wine sauce.

You can't go wrong with the confit de canard, a perennial favorite in Tokyo bistros. Here, it's expertly prepared, with crispy skin and tender, juicy meat. There's also a nice selection of reasonable wines by the bottle. A full-course dinner with drinks will only set you back around Y4500-5000.
