Tokyo’s Sézanne is Asia’s Best Restaurant

Sézanne, located on the seventh floor of Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo in Marunouchi, has been named The Best Restaurant in Asia at an awards ceremony in Seoul, South Korea on March 26.

The restaurant, led by chef Daniel Calvert, offers neo-French cuisine featuring modern classics infused with high-quality Japanese ingredients, drawing inspiration from the Champagne region of France.

Sézanne debuted on the Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list at No. 17 in 2022, climbed to No. 2 last year, and now secures the top spot.

William Drew, Director of Content at Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants, praised Sézanne for its impeccable cuisine, hospitality, and innovative approach, making it a must-visit destination.

Tokyo boasts four more restaurants on the list: Florilège at No. 2, Den at No. 8, Narisawa at No. 14, and Sazenka at No. 39. Additionally, four Japanese cities feature one restaurant each on the list: La Cime from Osaka at No. 9, Villa Aida from Wakayama at No. 35, Goh from Fukuoka at No. 45, and Cenci from Kyoto at No. 47.

Mineko Kato from Tokyo’s Faro was awarded the title of Asia’s Best Pastry Chef.
