Esaki: Contemporary Japanese in Aoyama

Featured on Savory Japan for April is Esaki, a wonderful three-star Michelin rated establishment featuring chef Shintaro Esaki’s innovative cuisine. Every single bite of our lunch was surprising and incredibly delicious. And midway through our meal, our server came to the table bearing the bounty of the season in a basket brimming with the wholesome, fresh produce that went into our meal.

Esaki is a place we’d like to return to again at different times of the year, as seasonal shifts bring varieties of seafood and produce into their shun (the peak of flavor).
