Nakamuraro’s 480-year history expressed in the French dish
Nakamuraro is one of the most long-honored Japanese restaurants in Kyoto located by the shrine gate of Yasaka Jinja Shrine since Muromachi period (1336-1573). L’embellir Kyoto opened recently in the same premises as Nakamuraro. The original L’embellir is still based in Minami Aoyama, in Tokyo and has received stars from Michelin for 7 years in a row. The owner and chef, Naoto Kishimoto, long hoped to open a new restaurant in Kyoto fusing “traditional and modern”, and finally his wish came true. The first floor faces Nakamuraro’s classical Japanese garden. Diners can enjoy superb views in every season such as cherry blossoms in spring and colored leaves in autumn. On the second floor is a large banquet room with folding screens, said to have been painted by one of the Kano School painters in the Edo period (1603-1868). There is also a room for wedding ceremonies. Of course, what is special about L’embellir is not only the architecture and décor but Kishimoto’s French cuisine using a full range of seasonal ingredients. The young chef in charge of the menu makes full use of his youthful creativity. His dish presentation resembles traditional Japanese cuisine in some aspects. L’embellir is planning to have special collaboration events with Nakamuraro, and one of them is a French banquet using Nakamuraro’s collection of Dutch cutleries.
