Michelin 2 Star French restaurant listed as one of Asia’s 50 best restaurants.pushing the boundaries of gastronomy

L’Effervescence is a one-of-a-kind French restaurant that pushes the boundaries of gastronomy with the spirit of “Ichiza Konryu” to unite the ingredients, space, tableware, staff, and customers as one.

Since 2015, L’Effervescence has been listed in the Michelin Guide as two stars and has been ranked among “Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants”, even receiving a special award for sustainability. The world-renowned cuisine at L’Effervescence uses an abundance of wild vegetables, including more than 30 types each season, and wild herbs sourced from an expert in the field.

When the chef at Noma (one of the world’s 50 best restaurants), and his team opened a restaurant in Japan for a limited time only, the person who led the search for ingredients in Japan and introduced them to the restaurant was none other than L’Effervescence’s executive chef Shinobu Namae.
Chef Namae believes that good food is something that can fascinate, and he aims for L’Effervescence to be a place where you can experience those unknown sensations. L’Effervescence has 40 seats in a sophisticated Japanese ambiance and private rooms in the basement. In the basement, there is a large open kitchen with a wood-fired oven, where you can watch the chefs at work in the kitchen and see the world of L’Effervescence.
