Sticking true to its name, a Latin word that means “as it is,” the Daikanyama-located Recte strips itself of all flamboyance in both its dishes as well as store appearance. That's not to say their raw forms are boring and plain — quite the opposite.
Only recently renewed with a simplistic yet chic outlook, the wooden beams used for the ceiling are the highlight of it all. Recte's absence during the renovation didn’t cause their customers to go looking elsewhere. The high demand even still proves how loyal their existing customers are, and the intense power of the word of mouth that brings in a crowd of new ones every day.
The mastermind behind it is none other than Chef Naohisa, who has spent years hopping from one Parisian restaurant to another and coming back to his homeland to contribute to the French cuisine scene here. Naohisa takes full advantage of his ingredients without the use of any enhancers. Recte serves everything as it is.
Several lunch courses are offered at cut-rate prices, and each one includes the bestselling risotto, cooked to a consistency which results in the best textures and richness. According to the season, the soup dish is constantly changing. The pumpkin soup is refreshing for an appetizer, but if you're lucky and timed your visit right, you’ll get to try their top-tier butternut squash soup.
After appetizers win you over, you'll be in for another treat when the main dish arrives. The roasted pork with fresh clams seasoned in a delicate sauce is probably the highlight of the meal, but the two-kinds of sauteed fish might be a close second.
Most importantly of all, Recte sticks true to its brand concept and never wavers from its ideals: simplicity done to perfection. Their resulting take on French cuisine is très délicieux!
