Enjoy emotionally engaging,
creative cuisine paired with the perfect wine.
Experience typical Ginza class and grace
in a place of luxury.
Take one step into the basement of this building in Ginza, and you will find a French restaurant that is simply extraordinary.
Iron art decorates the walls with a marronier flower motif, and each guest is welcomed to their table with a rose placed in the centre.
The white base of the design creates a beautiful overall feel that is particularly well-received by female guests.
Owner Noriatsu Yoshioka also serves as sommelier, and in that field he has a rich set of experiences, working as sommelier at 3-star Le Jardin des Sens in Southern France and on the staff at the opening of the Paris location of Restaurant Hiramatsu.
After returning to Japan, Yoshioka served as manager at the launch of Sens & Saveurs and other restaurants. He opened his own restaurant, L'art et la manière, at the age of 34.
He is famous for being at the forefront of next-generation French cuisine.
Hideaki Nagaya was an old friend of Yoshioka's who - after showing off his skills at Sens & Saveurs - became executive chef at L'art et la manière in September 2014.
Their close relationship helped them refine the concept, and create an even higher level of sophistication.
The menu is simple - there is only a single dinner course available, called Kizuna. The menu is laid out in poetic themes that stimulate the imagination - from "scenery" and "roots" to "seasonal" and "connections."
The menu's themes are bursts of inspiration that arise as Nagaya is coming up with new dishes, each of which contains within it both the chef's delicate sensibility and a sense of the seasons - and a hint of the lands of Southern France where he trained.
Yoshioka places great emphasis on the atmosphere at each table and on each guest's desires, and in selecting the wines, one feels little sense of imposition, only a feeling of intimacy that embodies the restaurant's name, which Yoshioka has interpreted to mean, "proper guidance."
Such refined hospitality promises an evening of bliss.
