French Gastronomy and Art: Guinea Fowl and Taku Yamada Foyot Art Exhibition at Patina in Shizuoka City!

SN3O3422

Service: Very friendly and smiling
Facilities: Very clean. Beautiful washroom.
Prices: Reasonable
Strong points: A true cafe where to relax and enjoy a good light meal any time of the day. Interesting reasonable wine and cider list.

A large bistro has the advantage of plenty of space for use in an exhibition and Patina in Shizuoka City, Aoi Ku is just doing that helping out a young local artist to make a name!

Artist Taku Yamada, manager Saori Kaneko and Chef Akiko Kondoh!

Taku Yamada is a painter who has the talent to use only a knife or sometimes a roller! His works do certainly a long look and what better to do it until March 4th while enjoying some succulent food or a relaxing drink!

Even the menu was designed by the artist!

And there was one item on the lunch menu I couldn’t let pass away: Oven-roasted guinea fowl!
