Bridges between France and Japan, in terms of cuisine, are often a success. This is the case of Shiro (in French: blanc) nestled near the church of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, where the Japanese chef Hiroyuki Ushiro pays tribute to his native village Yamaguchi. Bordered by the Sea of Japan, the chef spent his childhood there surrounded by a local and traditional cuisine, composed essentially of freshly caught fish. He transposes these memories into his cuisine and combines them with French gastronomy. You can enjoy six- or eight-course menus, but also Wagyu, the famous beef of undeniable prestige, and exceptional sakes. An experience not to be neglected if you are in love with Japanese gastronomy.
