Reasonably priced wine and wood-fire oven cuisine
The interesting thing about L'ignis is that they cook nearly all of their dishes in a wood-fire oven. Fish, chicken, meat, vegetable dishes--all of it has its time roasting to smokey perfection. The name L'Ignis, means "hearth," and the restaurant is the first in Japan to specialize in wood-fired cuisine. I can honestly say that I have never eaten anywhere in Japan like it. L'Ignis has plenty of food options for those who prefer western cuisine, though the restaurant focuses on using Japanese ingredients. I started on the Kanpachi carpaccio, which was so good I couldn't resist trying the Bonito carpaccio, too. After that, the waiter talked me into trying the Shamo chicken. Shamo chicken is a leaner, gamier member of the poultry family, but after roasting in that wood-fire oven, it came out tender and delicious. L'Ignis is only a two minute walk from Ebisu Station's East Exit.
