Feel like savoring a Japanese-style meal in a chic and quiet place? Push the door of the Metropolitan Hotel in Place de Mexico, then walk down the long corridor leading to Hokusai, this quiet and soothing restaurant, where an atmosphere conducive to relaxation and tasting reigns. With its clean lines, natural materials, and a soft and harmonious color palette, and, at the very back, a glass kitchen that allows you to see the chefs at work, this distinguished table literally transports you into the culinary world of the Land of the Rising Sun. The menu offers a wide selection of authentic Japanese dishes: sushi, sashimi, tempura, or Izakaya-style cooked dishes. A very wide range of raw fish specialties with a nice choice of sashimi (from €7 to €9 per piece), and really pleasant vegetable gyozas (€14) complete the offer. The house’s appeal also lies in its many suggestions of cooked dishes with, for example, fresh cod glazed with shiitake miso, okra, and dried magnolia leaf (€38) or beautiful tempura prawns with spicy mayonnaise sauce (€27). At dessert time, a caramelized pineapple, vanilla, umeshu sorbet, yuzu confit, and lime zest (€12) provides a pleasant conclusion to this meal. €45 menu including coffee for lunch.
