Ran, is a new Japanese restaurant at Faubourg Saint Honoré, with an aristocratic look, in a fabulous private residence (previously 1728), which you should test out!
The groups Black Code (Kinugawa, Orient-Extreme) and Moma (Manko, Noto) have recovered the old Marquis de la Fayette residence, by entrusting Tristan Auer with the decoration.
A contemporary and refined decor, not to mention, the kitchen which is showcased by the old chef of Kinugawa Vendome, Shushei Yamashita.
One would think that the waiters are dressed the “Casa del Papel” way, with their bright red outfit, designed by Pascal Imbert. White shirt and red pants during noon and a red suit in the evening, reminescent of the Japanese flag and breaking away from the 18th century spirit.
The intimate side of these three rooms is even warmer, during the evening according to me, due to the mood lighting.
In terms of taste, the flavors are harmonious with the Japanese cuisine, with a dash of the Frenchy side, through its modernity. Indeed, this is its added value, compared to other Japanese trends. Maki foie gras and eel, Harumaki crab, Camembert Tempura, one would have never thought of tasting such combinations but they are intriguing and appealing.
I would suggest sharing:
– California Mango, crab and cucumber
– Harumaki Crab,Arugula salad and cream cheese
– Foie Gras and Eel Tempura
– Chicken and vegetable Gyoza
– Beef Tataki black truffles and daikon, nori sauce
