Chef Yoshihiro Narisawa’s inspiration is reflected in an ingredient-driven menu with gifts from the diversity of Japan such as the sea, forest, mountain, and river.


It is said that the Japanese eat with their eyes. Chef Narisawa’s dramatic presentations may include twigs, autumn leaves, or seashells, evoking the environment. The austere dining room has a direct view into the spotless kitchen through a large window.

Expertly fried chiayu (baby sweetfish) swim amongst flower petals that float on the river. A radish, complete with its greens, is brushed with deep-fried mustard seeds resembling dirt. What appears to be a hard piece of coal disguises a tender piece of Hida wagyu. Golden consommé is dispensed from glass flasks as if from a chemistry set. Seasonal fruits reveal themselves in desserts such as kumquats and chocolate. The mignardises and signature gradation of petite macaroons will have you swooning.

Narisawa-san’s nouvelle cuisine reflects his classic French training with Bocuse and Robuchon, but is undoubtedly cuisine à la Narisawa grounded on his inspiration from nature.
