GYRE.FOOD

The GYRE.FOOD is a restaurant floor on the 4th floor, and 1,000㎡ space that brings together a fine dining establishment, all-day dining restaurant, and bar as well as a grocery shop and event space as a cohesive unit. The outlets on the “one floor, one concept” restaurant floor are all rooted in the same “SHOP & THINK” purpose.
The GYRE.FOOD space and overall concept has been developed by Kayoko Hirao and Yuri Nomura. As the overall producer (creative director) of GYRE, HiRAO Inc. CEO Hirao is involved in a broad array of projects, while Nomura is involved in a wide range of food-related activities, including “restaurant eatrip,” which she opened in an older stand-alone house in the Meiji Jingu-mae area of Harajuku. Kai Tanaka, who is known for his involvement with “The Open Book,” a Golden Gai district bar that specializes in lemon sours, is responsible for the on-site direction. Ryoma Shida, who trained in Paris and refined his skills as a sous chef at ESqUISSE in Ginza, is responsible for food direction at the restaurants. Architect Tsuyoshi Tane, who is based in France (Atelier Tsuyoshi Tane Architects) is responsible for the space design.
