Just Paris : Kinugawa

The trip to Japan I’m planning for spring gave me a good excuse to try some Japanese fine dining, you know, to get in the mood.
It turns out that watching Jiro Dreams of Sushi is all well and good, but it made me crave raw fish very badly!
Kinugawa is an institution in Paris, but it’s only recently that it got a visual makeover. The decor alone makes the experience worth it, even if the yellow tail carpaccio will surely leave its mark too.

Kinugawa, 9, rue du Mont Thabor, 75001 Paris 
Booking ahead might be a good idea. I personally think that the ground floor is more beautiful and quiet.
It’s quite pricey, but hey, we’re a couple of blocks away from the Place Vendôme. If you’re more on a budget, you can always go to the delicious Rice & Fish.



  • I just loved Jiro Dreams of Sushi, but I had the same side effect. We ended up going to our favorite local sushi restaurant, Sushi Ran, in Sausalito, California after the movie as well.

      @Alana Haha! I guess that’s a good side effect 🙂
