6 Gastronomies

Restaurant Gastronomy

There are meals to quench your appetite; there are traditional cuisines, dining experiences with a message, and those infused with a touch of art or entertainment; the range of gastronomy encountered in restaurants are more diverse than ever before.

A mere year and a half after its opening in 2008, HAJIME was awarded three Michelin stars for its excellence in French cuisine—the quickest ascent on record. Following our conversion to innovative cuisine in 2012, three stars were awarded again in 2017. We continue to test the frontiers of restaurant gastronomy on the cutting edge of culinary arts.
