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

L’Effervescence has been listed in the Michelin Guide as 2 stars since 2015 and was awarded 3 stars in 2020, also receiving a Green Star Award for being recognized for its dedicated efforts and practices towards environmental sustainability. It has likewise been ranked in “Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants”.

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 current executive chef Shinobu Namae.

Chef Namae believes that good food is something that can fascinate the mind, and his aim is for L’Effervescence to be a place where guests can experience such unknown and mysterious sensations.

L’Effervescence has 40 seats in a sophisticated Japanese ambiance and private rooms in the basement floor. A large open kitchen with a wood-fired oven is located on the basement floor, from where you can watch the team of chefs at work and see the world of L’Effervescence unfold before your eyes.
