There are many new addresses by the Canal Saint-Martin in Paris 10th arrondissement. After Africa with New Soul Food, China with Gros Bao, now travel to Japan with TÔ Restaurant.
Chef Ryo Miyazaki (ex Saturne) provides us with French Japan-inspired food based on the best French produce. He revisits Omakase, this traditional Japanese menu giving free rein to the chef in seven courses. This is the occasion to discover everything the chef wonderfully masters. But you can also go for the tasty lunch menu or the cold or hot izakayas like tapas to share.
The decoration is both modern and elegant with different spaces. There is a terrace, obviously, a bright room, and another more discreet room in the back for business lunches or groups. In the basement, you can discover the open-plan kitchen on one side, and a great bar on the other side providing you with a range of top-notch Japanese spirits and exquisite whiskies.
Let us start the carte blanche with the corn soup with foie gras, olive oil croutons and snow pea mousse, a fresh and creamy delight in the mouth.
We continue with the bluefin tuna ceviche, salmon, squid and leer fish, yuzu dressing, with a side of red radish and Japanese cauliflower.
Then, we have the exquisite Utah beach n°1 oyster and veal tartare, parsley espuma and roasted hazelnuts. A surprising and delicate iodic mix, we love!
We fall for the salmon sushi style. The chef uses the chinuki method (you find in ikejime) consisting in draining out the blood in the fish’s arteries and veins to cure it for 10 days in the ice. It gives the fish super smooth flesh. The chef grates some soy stone as a condiment for the final touch and it is just so good.
Then comes the thick slice of pollack cooked on low temperature, white soy sauce, and trout eggs. A soft cooking saving the flesh of the fish, and it tastes fantastic with the pep of trout eggs.
We love the rare rack of lamb with meat jus and beurre noisette with a side of seasonal vegetables. The meat is deliciously smooth.
Among the dishes on the menu, we also discover the half-cooked miso marinated salmon or even the exquisite squid grilled à la plancha. Plates are heartier than in the tasting menu, of course, there are not 7 dishes to taste.
We finish the meal with the exquisite chocolate dessert, feuillantine, yuzu-raspberry. Perfect to end this hearty meal.
As for the menu, you can enjoy some brioche French toast, or even frozen nougat!
In other words, a wonderful gustatory discovery, trust the chef, you will not be disappointed!
