Meaning 'cultivated land' in Latin, Arva brings the rustic, flavour-focused culinary traditions of Italy to Aman Tokyo. Open for lunch and dinner, the restaurant celebrates fresh seasonal ingredients in simple but creative dishes, full of soul.
Through established relationships with local farmers, fishermen, market traders and niche suppliers, chef Masakazu Hiraki and his team pay homage to traditional Italian home cooks, who combined an understanding of flavour with the creativity of necessity to craft extraordinary, flavoursome dishes from the produce available in the landscapes around them.
Arva doesn’t seek merely to replicate Italy’s culinary heritage, but to apply the principles that shape it to incorporate seasonal ingredients available nearby. Unique to Aman Tokyo, the menu features ingredients such as Ehime wildboar and Hokkaido Yezo-shika venison.
Restaurants are open to Aman guests and non-residents (subject to availability).
