The epitome of French fine dining in Tokyo, Le chateau is an elegant marriage of past and present ideas. The combination of some of the most extraordinary French wines ever produced and the genius of chef Joël Robuchon makes for the most compellingly hedonistic experiences many diners claim they’ve have ever had. Looking more like a fairytale castle than a restaurant, this luxurious three floored French restaurant has a visual style that is as far removed from Tokyo’s uber-modern fast paced veneer as one could imagine. The second floor houses a brilliant lilac and violet hewn dining room that Emperor Hirohito would envy. Robuchon’s Chateau is elegance personified complete with crystal chandeliers and one of the most comprehensive wine cellars in Japan (featuring over 12,00 bottles for sommelier Haruo Kenmotsu to choose from). "Convivialite (Conviviality)" is the theme for the service and dishes, which have more than a nod to the Tapas like L’Atelier restaurants Robuchon has pioneered worldwide. The signature Caramelized quail with mush potatoes is a testament to Robuchon’s ability to craft works of great texture and beauty with simple ingredients. There’s no tricks here, no façade of texture of flamboyance, just simple sophisticated modern French cusine prepared in innovative and laid back style. With an easy going ambience designed to make you feel comfortable there’s an unusually informal air to this fine dining restaurant, stripping it of all the pretentiousness one can sometimes confront at such venues. Downstairs there’s a bakery that serves such staples as Anchovie Croissants just in case you’ve only got time for a quick bite, or if you haven’t quite had enough by the time desert is through
