A renowned Japanese restaurant that showcases the chef's true worth — a must-place to visit at least once in your lifetime.
Restaurant Quintessence is a French restaurant that represents the best of Japanese cuisine.Owner chef Shuzo Kishida trained at the three-star Michelin restaurant L'Astrance in Paris under the guidance of Chef Pascal Barbot. Following in the wake of this experience, Kishida's cuisine pursues perfection across three elements: produit (ingredients), cuisson (cooking), and assaisonner (seasoning).The chef's specialty —offered throughout the year— is Goat’s Cheese Bavarois, prepared by blending olive oil with the fat of fresh milk delivered every morning from Kyoto, and carefully seasoned with Guérande Salt. This dessert depicts an emerald river flowing beautifully over a pure white hill.
Although it looks simple at a glance, this dish possesses a subtle sense of transient balance, which crumbles as soon as it goes into your mouth, dissolving into sweet perfection. This seemingly unchanging dish will make you realize the reality of the delicate changes and evolutions that can be born from exquisite flavors.Restaurant Quintessence welcomed its tenth anniversary in May 2016. Located in the quiet area of Gotenyama, in Shinagawa, the restaurant offers a magnificently radiant and intimate space with seating for approximately 30 people, including the main dining and private areas.
Shining gloriously bright under its three Michelin stars, the restaurant has gained 20th place in the list of Asia's Best Restaurants, led by a chef that devotes absolutely everything to the earnest selection of the best ingredients, working precisely for the moment when he is able to serve top-class dishes to his guests. This is the internationally renowned Chef Kishida, a proud representative of the best in Japanese cuisine.Although it is said that securing a reservation is difficult, people should visit this restaurant at least once in their lifetime. This is the only way to experience the true worth of Chef Kishida's magnificent cooking, and the restaurant’s astounding service and ambience.
