On the 7th floor of the Grand Front Osaka South Building, we opened "Brasserie Rubin," a restaurant that is unique to "Grand Front Osaka in the world," which was created with the opening of a store in Japan. You can enjoy the bakery baked in the store, the "food" approved by the owner Mori Rubin, and delicious sake.
Similarly, the bakery cafe "THE CITY BAKERY" will open for the first time in Japan in the open space on the first basement floor. At this "first" city bakery, I immediately enjoyed the taste of NY!
◆ Restaurant "Brasserie Rubin" that can only be found in Osaka in the world
The store name "Brasserie" means "easy drinking place" in French. As the name suggests, the bright storefront like a cafe, the fashionable bar counter next to the entrance, and the bright and spacious table space create a fashionable atmosphere that you can easily enter. It was a little early for lunch around 11:00, but the store was full.
The lunch menu includes a main dish of four categories: salad, sandwich, soup, meat and fish, with soup or salad and freshly baked bread. This time, I ordered "Cheese omelet open sandwich with tomato sauce".
First came the city bakery's signature bread, focaccia and campagne. They will serve you freshly baked pieces in the store. It has a simple taste that goes well with the dish, but the butter that comes with it makes the aroma even more pronounced. The soup is a slightly sweet cold potage.
The main open sandwich is a hearty dish with a fluffy cheese omelet on top of a thick slice of bread about 3 cm thick. Place the omelet and tomato sauce with plenty of vegetables on the cut bread. The mustard between the bread and the omelet is a nice accent. The remaining sauce was given focaccia. Even so, carbs + carbs ... It's full of volume.
In addition to the lunch set menu, there is also a cafe menu such as cakes. At dinnertime, you can enjoy a New York Supper with a wide selection of wines.
◆ Bakery also landed in Japan for the first time
Similarly, a bakery is also open in the open space on the first basement floor of Grand Front Osaka. It 's the first time to open a store outside of New York .
Pretzel croissants are very popular at the main store in NY. In Osaka, because it was the first day of the opening, "the production capacity of the workshop has not caught up", so it was sold in limited quantities every two hours.
When I went to the store at 16:30, 30 minutes before the sale started, there was already a line of 15 people. The limited number is 100 and up to 2 per person ... Alright, I have my part. Ten minutes after starting to line up, there was a line of about 30 people. Everyone seems to be a hot shop.
After 17:00, the croissants were baked. Pick up at the entrance and go inside the store. There are products other than croissants, but they are sold out more and more. The store is very crowded!
The cafe corner has a separate counter, so you'll have to pay for it once, but you can also order drinks at the cafe.
The cafe counter also sells drinks and cakes such as hot chocolate and homemade non-alcoholic sangria, which are very popular at the main store. Order hot chocolate and the brownie that appeared in the drama, and have it with the croissant you bought earlier.
Hot chocolate is the smallest cup, but I am very satisfied with the rich chocolate taste. Of course, you can also get marshmallows on it! Brownies are not persistent but have a solid sweetness. The croissant has a slightly sweet dough and the scent of butter is a perfect match, and you can enjoy the crispy texture just after baking. Even if you line up, it's worth buying freshly baked ants!
◆ The taste of a popular NY store that can only be tasted in Osaka
Grand Front Osaka is the first restaurant in the world that is not open even in NY, where the head office is located! After enjoying delicious rice and sake at the restaurant on the 7th floor, buy souvenir bread at the bakery in the basement ... How about a moment like "THE CITY BAKERY"?
