In this Art Deco dining room near Trocadéro, Yoshiaki Ito continues his variations on the subtly Japanese-inspired French cuisine of restaurant namesake Hiroyuki Hiramatsu, who still sometimes works the kitchen. Luxury ingredients feature prominently in dishes such as thin slices of lamb with onion jam and thyme-and-truffle-spiked jus, or an unusual pot-au-feu of oysters with foie gras and black truffle. For dessert, a mille-feuille of caramelized apples comes with rosemary sorbet. Helpful sommeliers will guide you through the staggering wine list, with more than 1,000 different bottles to choose from. There's no way to get away cheaply, so save this for a special occasion, when you might be tempted to order a carte blanche menu for €115 (lunch menus at €48).

I don’t like expensive restaurants because I find them very pretentious. What I do certainly like is always enjoy a delicious meal. I tried a lot of places in Paris but this one particularly called my attention. Since I started doing my research this restaurant type of food get presented as French and fusion. The name however sounded to me more for a sushi bar. And in fact they serve French food but everything or most of the dishes are presented
as if they were Japanese snacks. I ordered a Menu de Degustacion that was exquisitely balanced and copious. The food was marvelous. The decoration though was Art Deco and a little bit toooo much for me. But all in all, the Food was perfect and the wine was amazing.
