Ryuji Teshima as two places next to each other, Pages a places which cooks “French by Japanese people” and another one next door where he cooks “Japanese by Japanese”.
Pages is definitely worth its 2 stars. I love the way Japanese people use their own estecticst and approach to cook Modern French food. The courage to reduce the plate to its bare bone and essence is engrained in the Japanese culture, while we Europeans find this sometimes hard to do. We love to add stuff.
Every dish was concentrated and well thought out. The main ingredient elevated and paire with very few flavors. The lobster tail, just grilled on the binchotan grill and a little lobster sauce. Pure pleasure.
The wagyu inside-out risotto, a crispy rice rolled in wagyu form Guma and topped with caviar. Genius.
All of these get served in a beautiful dinning room with reduced Zen-like decor and a casual front office staff who is very friendly and knowledgable.
Highly recommendable.
