An unforgettable taste of modern French cuisine in Japan


On the Pass

Daniel Calvert

Pastry Chef

Patrick Thibaud

In a nutshell: Located on the seventh floor of the Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Marunouchi, this French restaurant invites diners to engage fully with the culinary journey, from the special Hokkaido corn bread slow-dried for a week, through the eclectic champagne selection and classical desserts. It’s a head-turning combination that earns Sezánne its debut into The World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2023.

About the chef: Born in Surrey, England, chef Daniel Calvert worked across London, Paris, New York and Hong Kong before moving to Tokyo in 2021. His diverse experience has turned him into an open-minded chef with an appetite to embrace different cultures and ingredients.

What will I eat? The delightful French menu, plated with Japanese precision, changes according to the ingredients available, but could include memorable flavours such as a 48-month-aged Comté cheese Gougére, or a preserved black truffle with champagne cream. From the sea, Calvert sources Akkeshi sea oysters to be served with Koshihikari rice and wild sorrel. A mouth-watering Shiranuka venison with sweet potato and sauce au poivre is also among the courses recently served, while strawberries from Fukuoka paired with burrata cheese may provide the perfect sweet ending for the dining experience.

Inside the restaurant: The modern dining room flawlessly fuses European style with Japanese materials. The pink and blue pastel tones of the chairs combine with the cream interior and vibrant green of the natural flowers, creating an opulent yet relaxed space.

Chef’s table: If you’d like a more personalised experience, choose the private dining area, with an intimate chef’s table hosted personally by Chef Calvert.
