One of the pioneers behind the farm-to-table movement in Japan, Namae was among the first to display the names of the farmers, fishers, and purveyors that supply the restaurant with ingredients on the menu. The kitchen’s thoughtful and meticulous cooking highlights the best of the seasons. In winter, duck breast is roasted over a...

    One of Tokyo’s buzziest restaurants, Sezanne bagged its first Michelin star within months of opening in 2021 and gained a coveted second star in the 2023 red guide. British-born executive chef Daniel Calvert aims to merge the “timeless elegance” of a Parisian grand maison with the “open-minded lack of preciousness” that characterises the American approach to French cuisine he encountered during his tenure as sous chef at Per Se in New York. The seasonal menu is polished, precise, and technically astonishing: Riesling-poached foie gras with apricot and verbena sauce has the perfect buttery text...

    L’Aube, a contemporary French restaurant located in Higashi Azabu, is the fruit of the talents from the trio of Chef Hideaki Imahashi, Pastry Chef Shoko Hirase and Sommelier Hiroshi Ishida. While they all can individually cast a serious magic, this trio always work as a perfect team. Their French based contemporary cuisine puts strong focus on expressing the beauty of Japanese seasonal greetings, often with a unique touch of oriental spices such as indigenous “Island” peppers from Okinawa and Arabic Dukkah. Quite interestingly, dessert here plays an equal role to the other parts. After th...

    Located on the 39th floor of Tokyo’s Four Seasons Otemachi hotel, Michelin-starred Est examines French cuisine through the lens of Japanese terroir. Ever since executive chef Guillaume Bracaval launched the restaurant in 2020, the two have taken a sustainability-driven, locavore approach in the kitchen, with 90 percent of the ingredients sourced domestically. Creamy soybean hummus is served instead of French butter, and Japanese honey and wasanbon are used to sweeten pastry chef Michele Abbatemarco’s artful desserts. Signatures such as soy milk flan, flavored with a broth made from vegetable t...
