Recommendation by Lemi
According to the well-decorated gourmand, you have yet to try real sushi until you dine at three Michelin-starred Sukiyabashi Jiro in Tokyo. Chef Jiro Ono, who is famous as the subject of the 2011 documentary film “Jiro Dreams of Sushi,” helms the ten-seater joint. The venerated sushi master expertly crafts rice and raw fish creations at an impressive rate. Here, chef Robuchon developed a great respect for the Japanese culinary tradition. He also learned the significance of freshness, temperature, and precise slicing to guarantee high-quality sushi, applying these techniques at his own restaurants. Booking is extremely difficult. You’ll have to liaise your reservation through your hotel concierge; and even then, they might have to ask you for a local contact to up your chances for a seat. It’s all worth it though; do it for chef Robuchon!
