  • No.45 Asia's 50 Best Restaurants 2019

Photography is forbidden inside the main dining room at Quintessence, one of only four restaurants to have held three Michelin stars since the first edition of the Tokyo’s Michelin guide was published in 2007. Shuzo Kishida has built a reputation for some of the best modern French cuisine in the city using skills acquired at L’Astrance in Paris under his mentor Pascal Barbot. His 13-course tasting menus are constantly evolving, but lily bulb, foie gras and bavarois make regular appearances. A wine cellar has more than 600 varieties of, mainly, French wine. Reservations are hard to come by (and must be made two months in advance) at this regular in Asia’s 50 Best list.
