This is a 'notice', worth a read, a thought and most of all, a visit!
Notice is a farmer’s Italian restaurant located in Hamakita, Hamamatsu City, which sits along the Tenryuu River. The restaurant is surrounded by a lush rural greenery with an abundance of nature.
農+ Notice is the brain child of Ryo Imazu and his wife who came up with the idea of growing and serving rich, nutritious organic food. Ryo knows the rubrics of agricultural techniques, having graduated from Tokyo Agriculture University. A stint as a business researcher helped him to come up with the idea of starting the restaurant in Hamakita, an area with rich red clay soil and pleasant weather with world famous dry winds known as karakaze. All Ingredients for nutritious organic farm produce.
While Notice does offer foods with chicken, fish, eggs and dairy ingredients, Notice shines with its vegetarian and vegan food offerings. As intended by the owner, anyone and everyone can come for a bite with joy and satisfaction. The vegetables used to make their delectable Italian food are sourced directly from the farms attached to the restaurant. This really is a remarkable approach and with the produce being organic, there is a safety guarantee for the food served at Notice.
The breads served at Notice are all handmade on the premises. They are made of eight carefully selected varieties of domestically produced wheat flour and a few other locally grown ingredients. The bread is softened by a long process of fermentation over low heat. The domestically produced wheat flour includes varieties like Haru no koi, yumechikara, zenryuufun and rye sourced from Hokkaido.
The menu can change due to the availability of ingredients so it is recommended that reservations be made in advance, where you are able to consult with the restaurant about which foods are possible for your visit. Notice also offer direct sales of the vegetables grown in their farms.
All in all, Notice is a unique restaurant offering a unique and much needed approach to serving good quality Italian food.
