Esterre is a fine dining restaurant showcasing contemporary French haute cuisine in partnership with DUCASSE Paris. Opened in November 2019, the restaurant is listed as a one-star restaurant in “Michelin Guide Tokyo 2023.”

A core pillar of the new restaurant is local sourcing. In line with Ducasse’s philosophy of uncovering what high-quality ingredients can be found in a given destination and then applying French culinary techniques to their preparation, Esterre serves up the best produce from Japan.
