Opened in 2005 in Aoyama, BENOIT is a bistrot produced by Alain Ducasse. The restaurant has the same name and esprit as the ever-popular traditional bistrot in Paris established nearly 100 years ago.
Upon climbing the spiral staircase, a bright dining room enclosed by large glass windows unfolds and you are welcomed by a miniature Eiffel Tower, BENOIT’s symbol, standing on your left.
The materials for the interior décor including the solid oak Versailles parquet flooring, cement lattice in the antique motifs, bistro tables of solid walnut were all procured from France. The pleasant and warm atmosphere is reminiscent of a mansion in southern France.
Moreover, the antique bottles, vintage steel boxes and glazed brownware pottery that serve as accents to the interior were chosen by Alain Ducasse himself at flea markets in France. You may also notice the frescos painted on the ceilings, which bring to mind the skies of Provence.
Please enjoy an atmosphere and taste of Parisian bistrot while basking in warm sunlight or looking over the night view of Aoyama.
