Flourishing Florilege Tokyo Review

It is a given that most foodies choose a restaurant based on the style and quality of the food. On a trip to Tokyo, Florilege was a rare time that the choice to dine was based on a rumoured ‘immersive’ experience as well as the fact it had been named as ‘one to watch’ by [...]
