The "kakigori" variation is being served with muscat grapes, cherry tomatoes, mangoes and pink grapefruit at Maxim's de Paris in Ginza and the Cote de Rouge eateries in Akasaka, Futako Tamagawa and Shibuya.
All four of the Tokyo restaurants will serve the ¥2,100 desserts through October. The ice isn't alcoholic; the Champagne is simply poured over it at the table.
