Restaurants in Paris- Kinugawa Gets a Makeover

Kinugawa Restaurant ParisThere’s no shortage of excellent restaurants in Paris, and this fall’s shining stars (like Anne-Sophie Pic’s La Dame de Pic) have had tongues wagging. Kinugawa has long been one of the best Japanese restos in Paris, a magnet for celebrities, and after a recent renovation by interior designers Gilles & Boissier, it’s been getting lots of press love. The ambience is sleek, contemporary, and poetic; the idea was to create an “invitation to voyage,” where guests are immersed in a faraway universe.

Chef Toyofumi Ozuru, a veteran of Meiji and Nobu Paris, has conceived a menu combining sophisticated sushi, traditional Kyoto dishes, and contemporary Japanese cuisine. Priced at 55 euros, the Izakaya menu features five dishes including Tuna Tartare with Caviar, Yellowtail Carpaccio, and Black Cod marinated in miso sauce.

Kinugawa is located at 9 rue du Mont Thabor in the 1st arrondissement, and is open Monday-Saturday from 12 pm- 2:30 pm for lunch, and 7:30 pm- 11 pm for dinner. For more information, visit
