On the tenth floor of Chanel’s flagship boutique in Ginza is a restaurant that is every bit as fresh, elegant and sophisticated as the French fashion house itself, with a cream-coloured interior designed by Peter Marino. A collaboration between Chanel and Ducasse Paris, Beige has been dishing up contemporary French cuisine with Japanese flavours since 2004.
The restaurant is currently overseen by executive chef Kei Kojima and holds two Michelin stars. The lunch course, priced at ¥10,500 per person, comes with an amuse bouche, two entrees and a dessert, with the option of swapping the second entree for two glasses of wine selected by the sommelier.
Dinner is priced upwards of ¥16,000 per person, but think of it this way: you could eat here 100 times before the bill exceeds the price of some Chanel purses.
