Hideki, a Japanese chef full of passion, spent fifteen years in the George V kitchens before opening this charming little gastronomic gem. Bringing back the link to the snow the interior was designed with a lot of clear colours. The elegant decor, signed by Atelier ES (see also Passage 53), creates a very zen atmosphere. Shortly after opening Hideki got a lot of positive feedback in the blog scene and earlier this year he was awarded his first Michelin star. On the prestigious website OAD, Neige d’été is now listed amongst the candidates for ‘Best New European Restaurants’.Neige d'été - ParisWe had the pleasure to taste a stunning tasting menu in great company.

He only works with the finest ingredients and his food is pure, intense, refined and always executed with this typical Japanese delicacy.
