Anyone who loves Japanese cuisine knows Seiji Yamamoto. The chef Mr. Yamamoto is ranked in the Top 10 in the World's Top 100 chefs. His Michelin 3-star Japanese restaurant, "Nihonryori RyuGin" represents the very essence of Japanese cuisine. It has been awarded first place in Gault et Millau Tokyo, as well as being selected as one of "Asia's Best Restaurants" and also one of the "World's Best Restaurants".
Yamamoto explains his conviction. "I prepare Japanese dishes that showcase the splendor of Japanese ingredients to my guests, sharing with them the notion of "Wa" [the Japanese concept of harmony] and expressing the rich abundance of Japanese produce to create an environment where people can come together with a mutual love of food to enjoy delicious cuisine". He opened "Nihonryori RyuGin" in 2003 in a back street in Roppongi. 15 years later, he moved and opened "RyuGin Honten" on the 7th floor of "Tokyo Midtown Hibiya" on August 21, 2018.
"Nihonryori RyuGin" exclusively serves an "omakase" set menu (Blessings of the Season), featuring dishes specially selected by the chef. Traditional recipes are carefully followed to ensure each dish is served at the correct temperature, preserving its aromas and umami. The unique cooking here magnificently epitomizes the wealth that nature has to offer in Japan. "There is no greater delight than tasting Japan's most treasured culinary ingredients in their most natural state".
The dining at "Tokyo Midtown Hibiya" is designed to convey an intense feeling of Japanese tradition and culture. Whether at a table, in a semi-private room or private room (maximum 8 persons), you are invited to savor hospitality infused with "Wa," through cooking that is "instilled with the charms and attractions of Japan," resonating with your five senses to bring you a delicious taste experience. Enjoy the culinary creations of Chef Yamamoto, skillfully evoking the changing seasons of Japan.
"Nihonryori RyuGin" moved from Roppongi to "Tokyo Midtown Hibiya," and opened on August 21, 2018.
