Somebody one day had the idea to build a small replica of the ubiquitous French Cafe Le Flore in Paris and quite succeeded, even if it is a very small version. 
All the waiters shout their orders in French, although thay are all Japanese, except for the occasional foreigner (last time I went there the one in place was from Siberia!). 
All bills are paid cash at the table as soon as you are served like in French cafes. 
Main fare drinks served including Panache, monaco and food such as Croque-Monsieur!

Upon recommendations from Allan Hamer, Neil Harrison and I decided to pay a visit to Fishmarket Taproom on November 28th to acquaint ourselves with the beers homebrewed by Brian Baird from Ohio, USA! 
Wel, well, first thing to say is that we have to go back because we just could not taste all the beers! 
Brian's homebrews are simply topclass! I believe another good friend of mine, namely Robert Yellin, when he told me people were travelling all the way form Yokohama to savour them! 
Brian and his very nice wife, Sayuri, designed and opened their microbrewwery bar in  July 2000. Sayuri is doing most of the cooking and serving while Brian is busy brewing the following beers: 
Rising Sun Pale Ale, Bay Seam, Teikoku IPA, Angry bay Brown Ale, Kurofune porter, as well as a rotating seasonal beer. 
Prices: ridiculous! 700 yen a pint, 550 yen a glass or 250 yen for a taster. 
Other beers form England, Ireland, Czechoslovakia and Belgium are also available as well as 6 different Single malt Whiskies, 7 Bourbon and one Premium Sake! 
A very large food menu for the hungry and the guests curious about the local produce. Worth atry! 
Parties possible. Bands are coming on occasions, so check regularly! 
Pictures coming soon!
