Binge - 3 Michelin Star Pierre Gagnaire Opens in Tokyo

Upmarket eaters will be having a field day when celebrity chefs pour into Singapore to open their IR restaurants. You’ve heard the stellar line up already – Tetsuya Wakuda, Joel Robuchon, Daniel Boulud, Scott Webster, Guy Savoy and other culinary greats are coming to town within the next few month. Brace yourself for extreme eating.

But round the region, other celeb chefs are also setting up shop. We just heard that three-Michelin starred Pierre Gagnaire will be opening on 19 March up on the 36th floor of ANA InterContinental Tokyo, in the Akasaka.

Expect Gagnaire’s hallmark cuisine of ‘unexpected juxtapositions of flavours and textures’ and his penchant for serving multiple dishes within each course. We understand that Gagnaire will be spending a ‘considerable amount of time’ at this hotel, so if you’re lucky, you might spot the man himself. The 59-year-old chef is credited with creating modern French fusion cuisine in conjunction with Herve This.

Gagnaire currently runs seven restaurants in Las Vegas, Dubai, Paris, Seoul, Hong Kong, Courchevel and London. His Paris restaurant was ranked third in the world’s 50 greatest restaurants by Restaurant Magazine UK in 2008.
