More private table than restaurant, Été takes intimacy and introduction-only dining to the extreme, with just one table seating four guests and one service per night. Chef Natsuko Shoji (who spent her formative cooking years at Asia 50 Best regular Florilège) serves her intricately crafted French cuisine herself. But getting the reservation is no easy feat. An introduction to the chef is the first step, followed by buying one of her famous fashion-inspired cakes, which itself is costly and hard to find. Expect such delights as sea urchin topped biscuits and smoked butter brioche, and that is just for starters. The effort – and bragging rights – is well worth it.
