The next generation of Japanese cuisine which preserves Japanese tradition and expresses it in new interpretations

"kabi", which was open on November 2017, is located not far from JR "Meguro Station". It is a restaurant that catches a lot of attentions because it is run by experienced chef, sommelier, and pastry chef.

Chef Shohei Yasuda has experience in French restaurants and the Michelin 2-star restaurant La Cime in Osaka, as well as experience at the the sous chef for the restaurant Tirpse, in Shirokane, Tokyo. After that he went to Denmark, and worked for the Michelin 1-star restaurant Kadeau. The sommelier, Kentaro Emoto, has trained at several famous restaurants, such as Lecrin Ginza and Aux-provençaux (Kojimachi, Tokyo), along with training in California. After that he studied wine brewing in Australia and worked as manager sommelier for restaurant NORA in Melbourne. Kirk Nakamura, who was a pastry chef at Tirpse, was also trained in Paris.

These 3 people, who have extensive experience abroad, opened their restaurant with the concept of showing customers “the wonderful food culture of Japan in our own style".In order to show Japan's food culture, they choose to serve Japanese cuisine rooted in this country, rather than French cuisine.

However, it is not traditional Japanese cuisine, but rather original food that can only be experienced at Kabi, based on traditional Japanese ingredients, food culture, and cooking methods. It is provided in a great setting with good music that every customer will enjoy. For example, a standard course on the menu consists of pickled vegetables, crucian sushi and fish marinated in vinegar. In particular, the funa-zushi (crucian sushi) is very popular for its rich flavor. There is a wide variety of pairing options suggested by the restaurants sommelier Kentaro Emoto, such as wine, beer, Japanese tea, Japanese sake and cocktails. Customers are able to enjoy new discoveries.

Renovated from an old house, this restaurant has a fashionable setting with a glass theme. Counter seats surrounding an open kitchen and table seats, there is also a private room. Please come and enjoy a new take on Japanese cuisine through the eyes of young chefs who represent the next generation.

    音楽、空間などトータルでセンスがよく洗練された雰囲気ながら築90年の古民家を改装した温かみもあり、気の置けない友人との会食、デート、家族での会食などあらゆるシーンに対応できるお店です。 料理も発酵料理とか北欧料理とか一言でくくれるものではなく、独特のセンスで複雑ながらも繊細な仕上がりの13皿。 若いチームの熱気も伝わってきて素晴らしい食事でした。
