Esterre

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 2024.”

A core pillar of the 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.

a taste of summer

Perfecting the Taste of Carefully Selected Lamb

Lamb raised on mother’s milk and the grass of Sisteron in the Provence region of France is this dish’s stand-out ingredient.
With a flavor unlike other sheep meat, fat as rich as foie gras, and an aroma reminiscent of herbs, lamb is delicately roasted over the steady heat unique to Tosa binchotan charcoal.

Lamb from Sisteron, heart of salad, reduced jus
Spiny lobster on the embers, summer vegetable confit
Kiwi, pistachio zabaglione, herb granité
