* Innovative French Restaurant Shinzo (Singular) *
The concept is French cuisine that innovatively evolves traditional French and Japanese ingredients with original ideas.
We offer “Japanese and Western-style French” course meals using fresh, seasonal ingredients purchased directly from producers in Kyoto. You can enjoy artistic products that can only be tasted here, including Kyoto’s Chiyo Dofu, which is known for its rich flavor, and produced using rare Japanese ingredients. Japanese whiskey and sake are also available at the bar attached to the restaurant.
The interior of the store has a calm atmosphere, with the overall color tone of black and antique gold. There is an old Baccarat glass decanter from the 1900s displayed on top of the chest of drawers, a floor with a checkered pattern and Western checkered flag motif, and pendant lighting made of Japanese paper and leather that resembles hanging paper lanterns. A design that combines Japanese and Western styles. The dull, beautiful gold of the ceiling, folding screens, and doors casts light into the store.
