The well-known Japanese restaurant in Paris, Kinugawa was redesigned in 2010 by Patrick Gilles and Dorothee Boissier. The 30 year old restaurant was given a new direction under the ownership of Group Code Black who bought the establishment after the demise of its founder chef the previous year.

A celebration of contrasting elements in the form of materials and textures now rules in the newly designed interior. Sculptured wooden panels and honeycombed screens contrast with classic leather covered seating. The simple wooden tables are backed by the striking black and white pointerism artwork of Alex Waline, which adorns the 6 meter wall and continues on the upper level.

The final result is an example of contemporary classic elegance with the charm of a French bistro while retaining a high degree of respect for the Japanese tradition and most importantly of all, a visually fascinating environment in which to enjoy a fine dining experience of wonderful Japanese cuisine.
