An ode is a lyric poem praising something special to one's heart.
Our ode pays respect to the exquisite ingredients produced in Japan,
the beauty of Japanese craftsmanship in tableware,
and the wonderful traditions of French cuisine.
It creates a collage of all the elements,
presenting Chef Yusuke Namai's sentiments and passion
on the table and in every nook of our restaurant.
Cuisine entwined with wine, service and setting,
weaving a new story of creative gastronomy out of Tokyo.
To every guest who visits us,
we hope you enjoy this ODE to your heart's content.
This is an ode to you.
