Tokyo diners offered seafood bounty of the Great Southern Land at ‘South’

Tokyo diners can experience sensational seafood from the Great Southern Land following the opening of the newest restaurant in the Terra group, “South Seafood & Grill.”

Located on the 39th floor of Yebisu Garden Place Tower, the new restaurant offers sweeping views of the Tokyo skyline, with a menu focused on Australian and New Zealand seafood along with matching high-quality wines from these noteworthy ‘New World’ producers.

‘South’ will ensure the burgeoning popularity of Australian cuisine in the Tokyo dining scene continues to grow, with its seafood bounty encompassing Australian lobster and New Zealand mussels as part of its range of fresh seafood, in addition to beef and lamb.

The restaurant will also offer a salad buffet with more than 20 kinds of fruit and vegetables, thanks to a collaboration with Shunpachi, a greengrocer that specialises in seasonal produce.

Terra Ltd, part of the Tokyo-based Global Sky Group, has utilised its experience in importing premium Australian and New Zealand wines, gin and other beverages, to ensure the new restaurant’s wine list features the best of Oceania.

This includes premium wines from Queensland’s Granite Belt by Sirromet Wines, which has been recognised as a 5-star winery by wine critic James Halliday, having won more than 800 prestigious national and international awards since its opening in 2000.

The new restaurant complements Terra’s current gourmet Australian cuisine restaurants, comprising Terra Australis, a premium wining and dining establishment based in Sendagaya, and its namesake Terra Azabu-juban in the centre of the city’s embassy district.

Welcoming the new restaurant’s opening, Global Sky Managing Director, Ko Nagata said South would make an excellent addition to Tokyo’s world-leading restaurant scene.

“Yebisu Garden Place is known as one of Tokyo’s most pleasant ‘cities within the city,’ and South will add to its sophisticated international offering, catering to diners from Japan and abroad seeking an authentic taste of contemporary Oceania cuisine,” Mr Nagata said.

“Terra continues to grow in response to increasing demand from our local and international clientele, and we look forward to further expanding our restaurant range in a city boasting the world’s best eateries.”
