Atame: a new concept to be introduced

Atame: a new concept to be introduced

Received Atame’s invitation to their grand opening to the media, I was quickly intrigued by their aphrodisiac concept and burlesque performance.

It was a busy evening, so it was very difficult for me to jot down information. The purpose of the evening was simply to give a glimpse of the overall nature of the restaurant. We had bites here and there and a peek of the performance.

Some dishes really had me going. Some just left me unresponsive.

The performance was difficult to enjoy as the crowd of the evening was not the most tamed. But, I could grasp the intention of the performance, and how fitting it would be to the whole concept with the right crowd.

My pictures aren’t the best to capture the restaurant sensual side. My lens really can’t handle almost non-existent light setting. But here are some to give a general idea.

I really liked my drink, which was mixed with yogurt. Tasted like bailey.

The oysters were a disappointment. The passion fruit and the lychee overshadowed the sweet delicate taste of the oysters. All I tasted was the passion fruit.

This duck and the quinoa salad had to be my favorite dish of the evening. The contrast between the two was perfect. The quinoa was especially tasty and fresh!

This filet mignon has to be the most tender filet mignon I had in a restaurant. The texture was just heavenly.

The brownie was a nice finishing touch. It was sweet yet spicy.

Atame is most suitable for a more mature crowd, 25 years old at least. I can see it a perfect venue for intimate private parties. If you are looking for great food tasting, this is not the place. If you are looking for more than decent food and a very sensual experience, this is the place.

    Interesting! But how is the food sensual? What do your mean by aphrodisiac concept? Ate the food that they serve the ones that are supposedly good for your sexual performance? I do see that they have oyster lol as well the dessert being chocolate… And a burlesque show? Like Chicago? I’m intrigued, but not really wanting to go if it’s just really gimmicky and Not really well executed… And I can see it just being… “Here, watch this show and eat these foods that are known to increase sexual desire/performance and now pay 200$” You know what I mean?

      I guess my review isn’t the best at describing the restaurant. The aphrodisiac concept is about mixing known aphrodisiac food into the cuisine, which supposedly would increase your mood.

      The burlesque show is nothing like Chicago. Just like you, I thought it would be like that. Atame is more intimate, with only one girl performing. Although I was disappointed about the show, the evening I attended was only meant as an apercu of the restaurant. So, I would like to think that their performance would be much nicely executed.

      To describe Atame correctly, it’s not meant to be loud. It’s meant to be sultry and sensual environment, and that I can say that ambiance is well delivered.

      I cannot comment on the price, because no menu was presented that evening. However, I would say that an average of 50$ per person is well justified.
