CHEZ INNO (Kyobashi)

シェ・イノ outside
In my opinion Michelin's Tokyo restaurant guide is a joke and most of my friends who enjoy eating everything and willing to spend whatever it costs for a great meal will all agree with me. The reason is because most Michelin investigators are 2nd class food journalists, who are connected to the worst and most famous food critic in Japan. Many of the restaurants listed aren't worth a single star and also many restaurants which deserve a star aren't included in the guide as well. The best classic French restaurant in Japan doesn't even have a star, which is CHEZ INNO at Kyobashi. In my opinion, there are only two French restaurants in Tokyo which deserve to be 3 star restaurants. One is the L'osier, which is currently closed until 2014 since they are rebuilding their building and the other one is Chez Inno.


シェ・イノ ウメイロのポワレ
Owner/Chef Noboru Inoue worked at various restaurants in Europe during his 20's. He worked at the world famous Troisgros in Roanne and also Maxim's in Paris. He came back to Japan to become chef of Ginza L'ecrin and then opened Chez Inno in 1984. His creations are classical French, not modern or light, but heavy with sauce. If you really want to have a special dinner at Chez Inno, instead of choosing one of the course menus, I strongly recommend to choose from a la carte menu.


シェ・イノ 仔羊のパイ包み焼き マリアカラス
Chef Inoue's most famous creation and specialite is Noisette d'agneau en eroute "Maria Callas" (Lamb Pie Maria Callas Style). Maria Callas, the late great opera singer was a regular at Maxim's in Paris when Inoue was working there and he was inspired by her to create this dish. It has Foie Gras in the middle and truffle sauce just matches perfectly. It's one of my favorite main dishes of all French restaurants I've been to even though I'm not crazy about lamb. And if it's your first time at Chez Inno, you must try it.


シェ・イノ オマール海老のガトー仕立て
For Hors d'oeuvres, Gateau de homard "Cote d'or" (Lobster & Vegetable Gateau) is one of my favorites


シェ・イノ タラバガニとアヴォガドのスープ仕立て キャビアのせ
Crabes en gelee au caviar (King Crab, Avocado & Caviar in a soup) is fantastic,


シェ・イノ フォアグラのティエド キャベツ包み
as well as Foie Gras aux Choux (Foie Gras wrapped in Cabbage),


シェ・イノ テリーヌ盛合せ(鴨ノテリーヌと帆立のムースのテリーヌ)
and their daily Terrine is another favorite of mine.


シェ・イノ 牛喉肉のサラダ
They have several salads like Salad with Beef Port Neck,


シェ・イノ 魚介類のサラダ
and Salad with various seafood.


シェ・イノ すっぽんのスープ
If you wanna some soup, try Soupe de Tortue (Chinese soft shell turtle soup),


シェ・イノ フルーツトマトのガスパチョ
Fruit Tomato Gaspacho,


シェ・イノ 栗のポタージュ
or Soupe Du Jour (Soup of the Day), like the above which is Chestnut Potage.


シェ・イノ アイナメとウニのグラタン アメリケーヌソース
If you are having poisson (fish), Ainame et oursins gratines (Rock trout in sea urchin sauce)


シェ・イノ スズキのバジリコ風味
or Escalope de bar au basilic (Seabass in basil flavor) are my favorites.


シェ・イノ メイン仔羊のロースト
If you're not having Noisette d'agneau en eroute "Maria Callas" (Lamb Pie Maria Callas Style) another good dish is Carre d'agneau noti a la Dijonnaise (Roast lamb Dijon style).


シェ・イノ シェ・イノ フロマージュ wagon
And when you are done with your main dish, one of the waiters will bring the cheese wagon.


シェ・イノ フロマージュ
It would be a sin not to have cheese at any top french restaurant.


シェ・イノ デザートはワゴンか
Also, you can't skip dessert as well.


シェ・イノ デザートはワゴン
You want to choose several cakes in small portions.

If you want to choose the course menu go with Menu C, which is the most expensive one at 21,000 yen, but the only one which includes Chef Inoue's specialite Noisette d'agneau en eroute "Maria Callas". They have a fantastic wine selection with an experienced sommelier. So if it's a special occasion or you are on a date to impress a person, I strongly recommend choosing Chez Inno.
