The Japanese restaurant Yoshi run by chef Takéo Yamazaki
YOSHI, the only Japanese restaurant in the world by Joël Robuchon, awarded with a Michelin star, presents a healthy and contemporary cuisine, run by Japanese chef Takéo Yamazaki who is starting his 10th year at the helm, under the aegis of Christophe Cussac. Graduated from the Hotel School of Osaka, he quickly joined the kitchens of the gourmet restaurant “Château Robuchon” in Japan before spending six months within Paul Bocuse’s brigade. After several experiences in France, he returned to Japan for the opening of l’Atelier de Joël Robuchon. He ended up being a part of all the openings of his mentor’s restaurants, from London to Hong-Kong through Monaco.
In 2008, Joël Robuchon asked Takeo to oversee the kitchen of YOSHI. Among its signature dishes are Ebi Shinho (shrimp dumpling with Kombu consommé) and Ghindara No Saikyo Yaki (marinated and delicately melted black cod). On a daily basis, Takeo mixes European and Asian flavours inspired by his travels around the world and comes up with new associations that he incorporates into his dishes. Nigiri, maki, sashimi, teppanyaki cooked fish and meat are accompanied by the best Japanese sakes and green teas. Sober and chic, the decoration is signed by the French interior designer Didier Gomez. The dining room and the sushi bar, accessible to only forty privileged guests, open onto a Japanese-inspired garden designed by the landscape architect Jacques Messin. Takéo has managed to make YOSHI the best Japanese restaurant in Monaco and the only one to have earned a Michelin star.o celebrate the 10 years of our Michelin starred Japanese restaurant YOSHI, the Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo adorns the colours of Japan from September 25th.
On this occasion, Tsuyu Bridwell will exhibit her sculptural artwork ‘A wish on a wing’ within the Lobby Bar coupled with Japanese inspired floral decoration by Perrine Guyonnet alias Miss Rose by Perrine. When you arrive you will be immersed in a poetic, fragile and light universe through a visual meditative experience. Origami butterflies are the main symbolic of the art piece, that is fixed to nylon threads multiplied to infinity as if they were twirling through the air. The delicate and ephemeral work leaves room for imagination and reflection.
