French Gastronomy: Bistro FERME Opening Party in Shizuoka City!

Service A bit shy, but very friendly and smiling
Equipment & Facilities: Spotless clean. Superb washroom. Entirely non-smoking
Prices: reasonable considering the quality
Strong points: Classic and inventive French bistro gastronomy. Mainly local products used. International wine list


Last night I had the great pleasure to participate to the opening party of a new French Restaurant, Bistro FERME in Shizuoka City, led by one of the most promising young Chefs in Shizuoka Prefecture, namely Hiromitsu Ogasawara/小笠原光洋さん!


Located in the center of Shizuoka City, in Gofuku Cho, you can enter it either through an entrance beside an ubiquitous big chain “coffee shop”,


or through a more discreet door at the back opening onto a street paralell to Gofuku-Cho Street!


In a totally non-smoking atmosphere you can either sit at a wide counter facing the kitchen to enjoy the spectacle of great morsels being prepared in front of your eyes or at large table sitting about 10 guests.
The whole place can sit around 30 visitors, making it prefect for a private party!


Guests looking for a cozy corner can sit at small tables facing a sofa for your special company!


The counter!


Chef Hiromitsu Ogasawara/小笠原光洋さん and his smiling team, Ms. Hioryo Takeda/武田博代さん and Ms. Ayaka Kobayashi/小林礼佳さん!


The concept is that of a fixed menu for lunch (2,000 yen + TAX) and dinner (4,400 yen + TAX) with ingredients changing constantly. very reasonable when you consider the quality!
An A la Carte menu will be available in the evening!


Hiromitsu San mainly uses local ingredients obtained directly from many of his contacts among Shizuoka farmers and producers, thus insuring the best freshness and quality!
Let me show what you can expect from April 10th when Bistro FERME will be open to the public!


Plenty of wines!


Red wine from their reasonably-priced listing!


The bread is exclusively home-baked with natural yeast!


French Gougere and Spanish Jamon Serrano!


Succulent pate de campagne and fresh greens!


Iwata City white asparagus and grilled cuttle fish in caper sauce!


Burdock potage!


Sauteed foie gras with lentils and poached egg!


Shizuoka small turnips, razor shellfish and citrus foam!


Shizuoka Iki Iki Chicken roast and Supreme sauce!


Macaron, salted caramel and confiture of seasonal fuits!

Look forward to the next report!
