シャラン産鴨肉、無花果のバニュールスワイン煮、ポムスフレとフォルムダンベール。
Challans Duck with fig cooked in Banyuls wine, potato souffle with Fourme d'Ambert cheese and wasabi. We had to add the duck sauce ourselves. I chose the 10,000yen lunch course instead of the cheaper ones simply because I wanted to eat this!

I have heard about this place for a long time and everyone warned me that the food is not "classic French" but more modern Japanese-French fusion kind of cuisine. The fish is definitely very Japanese, while the rest are light and delicate tasting and use quite a bit of herbs. I like the food alright but am not crazy about it. The environment is elegant, and the service, though a bit formal, is very professional. Somehow there are menus for 7500yen and 10,000yen course, but the cheapest 5000yen has no menu which makes it a bit embarassing to order...btw I went to this place before it got 2 Michelin stars...probably hard to book now.

Yeah the pictures are from the 10,000yen course. We printed out a coupon from its homepage and got ourselves a free drink each(champagne or wine), but that coupon is gone after the restaurant got Michelin stars. ^^;;;

Oh there are many restaurants that I think are stars-worthy but didn't get any, and many unbelievably crappy restaurants got stars...

So that's the 10000 yen course? The duck looks good (though a bit small). How's the icecream with Anise star flavor...seems interesting...

Is there other French place you think is better and didn't get a star at Michelin?

Hi Chaxiubao, hope you have great meal there and a great time in Japan. My friend who went with me ordered the 7500yen lunch course, and changed his chicken main dish to the duck with a fee(not sure exactly how much but I think it was about 2000yen). His 7500yen course actually had better appetizer, better fish dish, and better dessert than mine!!

Thanks for the useful tips. We're actually going there 2 weeks later.
