Fodor's Expert Review Ima
Five years in a top Tokyo kitchen transformed Chef Julien Lemarié's scintillating, pared-down cuisine, for which he quickly won a Michelin star. Using only local products—as sustainably sourced as possible—the chef crafts stunning plates, featuring line-caught fish and high-quality meats with glorious vegetable accompaniments served in an elegant, streamlined restaurant that features natural materials: wood, waxed concrete and ceramic. The chef's romance with Japanese cuisine is front-and-center at his new restaurant next door, Imayoko, specializing in donburi and izakaya-style dishes to share paired with artisanal sake.
