Kei: a poet cook

Kei: a poet cook

Prepare for an eye-opener. Purity, refinement, surprise, quality seasonal products, colour, harmony... these are some of the keynotes at Kei Kobayashi's fine restaurant.

The talented Japanese chef Kei Kobayashi, who received a Michelin star the year soon after his restaurant's opening, passionately reworks French culinary creations, making them worthy of contemporary paintings. Like a melody that lulls to begin with, Kei entices you to trustingly surrender to his cuisine, for a true awakening of the senses.

The menus do not disclose anything in advance; they are 'carte blanche', adjusted only to accommodate food intolerances. Five to eight dishes reflect the chef's inspirations of the moment with delicacy and poetry. The lavish crisp garden vegetables with rocket foam, mixed with an exquisite lemon emulsion, is one of his signature dishes. Kei perfectly balances textures, seasonings, and cooking, as with the lightly pan-fried foie gras and ginger confit, or the Mozambique shrimp tartare with a bed of Schrenki caviar and smoked yoghurt espuma.

Aesthetes appreciate his infinite palette, which he constantly renews with precision and control. Fantastic.
