Chef Yasuyuki Takara opened this fine French restaurant in 2018, and it already holds a Michelin star! Anyone who had been following his career would hardly be surprised, having watched him carve out a top spot for himself on the Tokyo scene by finding great success at several restaurants in the capital.
The name translates from the French to “ripening,” referring to the seasonal ingredients themselves, the chef’s own culinary skills, and the relationships between his restaurant and the customers. Takara-san also spent considerable time honing his skills in France, learning about all the rules and ingredients of their complex cuisine.
The greatest artists are those who bend and break the rules, which is exactly what chef Takara does with some innovative combinations. These include fugu blowfish served with roquefort cheese, and foie gras terrine with Japanese seasonal fruits.
Traditionalists will also find plenty to keep them happy among the 10 dishes of the dinner course meal, making this a perfect place for those seeking a balance between fine French gastronomy and unique Japanese-fusion dishes.
