Near Roppongi "Grand Hyatt Tokyo", is the French restaurant “Le Bourguignon”. Surrounded by a garden full of greenery, this restaurant makes you forget the bustle of the city. It received one star in a world-famous gourmet guidebook and has produced many famous chefs.
The owner chef, Misho Kikuchi, is from Hokkaido. He went to France in his 20s, trained at restaurants in Lyon, Montpellier, and spent his time at the restaurant " l' ECUSSON " in Bourgogne. After returning to Japan, he worked as a chef for "L'AMPHORE" (closed) before opening “Le Bourguignon” in 2000.
Chef Kikuchi's dishes, from appetizers to main dishes, are based on the theme of "A plate of French cuisine that values the Japanese sense, with your own taste added", and features a calm flavour that will make you want to come back again and again. The majority of ingredients used come from Hokkaido and Chef Kikuchi carefully selects those that can help you to really feel the season, such as vegetables that are sourced from producers who the chef visits directly, meat that is primarily from Japan, and the pigeons and lambs from France. They also have around 300 types of wine in stock. 70% of the items on the list are from Bourgogne, France. They are selected from the producers who the chef has met in France since long ago and those who have become popular in recent years.
Even now, Chef Kikuchi goes to a French restaurant every summer for a few weeks to train. During this time, he learns not only about the food, but also about the different styles of the restaurant, such as its way of thinking and its business style, from the chefs and also from visiting other restaurants that are the talk of the town, finding a lot of inspiration to digest and absorb. This thirst for knowledge is the reason why “Le Bourguignon,” always brings fresh ideas from France and has helped it to become a beloved restaurant over time. The small restaurant, with 18 tables and 1 semi-private room (up to 4 people), attracts guests who want to enjoy their meal time. Wrapped in the gentle smile of the chef and the calm ambience of the dining room, you can spend a richly satisfying and enjoyable meal time with your loved ones, including family, friends and guests from overseas.
