A Message from L’effervescence
Flavors we adore from this island where we were born and raised, and savors that have travelled from all over the world to see us.
Both are somehow destined to meet on the plate.
We come together to create a harmonious whole.
Our restaurant is a hermitage in the city – for three to four hours, we hope you can escape from busy bustling life.
Feel like you are deep in the forest or in the big ocean as you appreciate the blessings of nature.
Never forgetting the diligence and patience of the farmer, picture the magic of the invisible microorganisms in a glass or on a plate that effervesce your body and mind.
Welcome.
Chef Namae / L'Effervescence

東京で最も美味しいフレンチだと聞いていた。楽しみにしていたが、噂に違わぬ美味しさに加え、客層の雰囲気が実に良い!メニューは創作系で、王道のフレンチではないところが、またお洒落であった。

Chef is creative. Fusion of sake, sake nuka, and green tea ceremony with French style presentation is one of a kind. Wine selection is strong and targeted to their dinner. Truly special restaurant.

また半個室の空間の席も有り次回はそちらで食事をしたいなと感じました

Had lunch with family on Christmas day 2018. Generally very good. A potential future 3 Michelin stars, but needs some tweaks based on the menu we had. The 4 hours cooked turnip should be more tender (may be even longer cook or at a different temperature). The monkfish was slightly overdone and the greens served with it were too chewy. Finally, the duck was too chewy. With tender and juicy roast duck available in numerous Chinese restaurants through out the world, if duck is going to be served as the main course, it needs to be as tender and juicy as the Chinese version. However, the potential was apparent and the overall experience was very good.

Overall 2food 3service 3ambience 3

We’ve been fortunate enough to dine at a number of Michelin restaurants globally (New York, Italy, Austria), and we visited 3 other Michelin restaurants while in Japan, and L’Effervesence was the most disappointing one. Though the restaurant is tastefully designed, and service was polite and efficient, it was also quite stiff and impersonal. There were definitely a few pretentious moments (such as the table side matcha service with exaggerated napkin folding and movements). There was a weird option cheese course that was included in the set menu, but not physically listed on said menu, so that caused a bit of confusion. Overall, flavours were good, but no dish stood out in particular, and no story was told through the menu. There was also some questionable plating on one or two dishes (ie the sashimi scallops that supposedly painted a portrait of the sky…). At payment, our card was declined twice, and they informed us they did not have a chip reader when I asked them to insert the card, rather than swipe it. This is quite shocking for a Michelin restaurant, albeit a 1 star one. We used the same card our entire trip, before and after the restaurant, so our card was not the issue. This particular card has no foreign transaction fees, so it was definitely irritating to pay over 50,000 yen for a mediocre dinner, and then have to use a different card WITH foreign transaction fees because the restaurant wasn’t properly equipped.

Best meal of my life. Creative dishes, wonderful flavors, excellent pairing. Maybe my only critique is that the pairing does not include a drink for each course (or even a warning that an upcoming course will not include a drink), so kind of a bummer and disappointing from a value perspective.

For duck main course, negi and cavolo nero are redundant.
Fish meal is bitter because of the over-roasted fish skin and ginkgo nuts.
I don't understand the wild grape element which tastes so-so.
The small cakes still leave much room for improvement compared to other awesome patisserie stores.
For ambiance, it's a little bit noisy.
The above is what I don't really like.

But for other parts, everything is super impressing, actually second to none.
I especially love the turnip, Almanac (the first meal), duck roast with white truffle, monkfish liver pie and unripe mandarin jelly.
Overall it's a wonderful experience.
The standard of food is close to Michelin 3-stars.
頑張って !

I was expecting a French meal with Japanese flair but I got a Japanese meal with loose French influence. Don't go expecting the butter, garlic, cream, or other staples that normally define French cooking and I'm sure you'll enjoy your meal.
