The sweet of tooth rejoice – there’s a place just for you, where you can ditch the preambles of starters and main courses and go straight for dessert. Located three minutes from Shimokitazawa Station is Neue, a cosy restaurant that caters for around ten people at a time. Focusing solely on sweets is a masterstroke, as every item is an indulgent treat. Our current favourites are the nutty yet smooth pistachio crème brûlée, the perfectly executed flan and an indulgent chestnut and white chocolate parfait (pictured above) big enough for two. The tipple of choice is wine by the glass and the list is a cleverly curated selection of reds and whites. Neue is perfect for a catch-up and for those who want a mini restaurant safari having had other courses elsewhere. The place is open until midnight but still retains its relaxed and charming atmosphere, at least until the sugar crash kicks in.
