Want a romantic dinner?
Located at the Chanel building in Ginza, Beige by Alain Ducasse is a two-starred Michelin restaurant which uses fine Japanese ingredients for its modern French cuisine. The interior uses various materials such as wood, silver, and gold, coupled with warm lighting to provide a cozy ambiance.
Dinner offers three options, a three or a four-course menu and a tasting menu; we chose the three-course menu (￥14,000). First we had the welcoming snacks and amuse-bouche, both used various vegetables and sour sauce that gave a freshening taste. For appetiser, I chose sautéed Kurumaebi prawn, mango and cucumber, coriander condiment. I was quite surprise that they used mango as a side and the taste accidentally matched. The main dish was poached blue lobster with quick-sautéed courgette from Kamakura, the lobster was really tender and I was in love with the red onion garnish. Lastly I chose pistachio soufflé with cherry sorbet for my dessert, I was a little bit dissapointed with the soufflé as it wasn’t soft enough. The petit fours and chocolate was really good, especially the yuzu profiterole.
And citron flavoured macarons as a leaving gift, who doesn’t love macarons? Beige made my day.
