Lonely Planet review
Classical French with a subtle Japanese twist is de rigueur at this much-celebrated restaurant, located on the 9th floor of the JR Tower at Sapporo Station. Seasonality dictates the menu, with the culinary palette spanning from sun-ripened produce to winter hauls of snow crab. Although it's pricey to call forth a bottle, Mikuni has one of the largest and most extensive wine cellars in the city. There is French but no English on the menu – non-Francophones can select a course based on price. Stop by for lunch if you want a reasonable splurge.
