I have dined at both L'Atelier and La Table in Tokyo, found both to be fantastic, and couldn't imagine Le Chateau being any better, however I was wrong. Each is very different, and Le Chateau is at the top of elegance & culinary excellence, but in a warm and welcoming way. Everyone there is extremely friendly (yet professional) and never pretentious - instead, the staff interacts with you to ensure an experience you'll never forget. They save your wine bottle label in a special plastic sleeve & envelope and give you the night's menu to take home. If you're lucky, you might even meet the chef or the Director of Cuisine himself, Alain Verzeroli, as we did, who was absolutely charming (and even posed for a picture). The food, every course, was like a musical score, with so many perfect individual parts, and when layered, created a masterpiece. Visually stunning, the bread and dessert trolleys were the object of everyone's desires. A multi-colored macaroon tree was the centerpiece of the well-lit dessert trolley that floated across the dining room floor throughout the evening, turning heads & tempting all the diners. If you are going to splurge, do it right - go to the best - go to Le Chateau de Joel Robuchon. He and his staff deserve at least 5 stars!
