The luscious cuisine of Executive Chef Laurent Andre of the trend-setting Le Royal Monceau Raffles Paris Hotel will add a delicious dollop of mid-winter spice to the selections on the menus at the Imperial Hotel’s ever-popular La Brasserie.
From Tuesday, Jan 22 to Sunday, Jan 27, Chef Andre will take over in the kitchens of La Brasserie as its celebrity guest chef on loan from Le Royal Monceau, creating signature dishes from its Restaurant La Cuisine. The event is being held in conjunction with the 30th anniversary of the opening of La Brasserie in The Imperial Tower in 1983, and the recent reopening of Le Royal Monceau under the Raffles Hotels and Resorts umbrella, after an entire transformation of the 1928 Parisian landmark by designer Philippe Starck.
Andre will prepare a tempting selection of La Cuisine’s luncheon and dinner favorites in table d’hote presentations from a very reasonable 5,000 yen for lunch, from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., and from 8,000 yen for dinner, from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. For desserts, guests will enjoy a selection of signature pastries from the La Cuisine menus.
A sumptuous, advance-reservation gala dinner created by Andre for a maximum of 70 guests will be hosted by La Brasserie on the evening of Thursday, Jan 24, at 20,000 yen, including wine or soft drinks.
Andre’s creations will eloquently reflect his years of experience with Alain Ducasse at the stunningly neo-baroque, three Michelin-star Louis XV in Monaco and at Ducasse’s celebrated Spoon Food and Wine Restaurant in Paris.
A member of the distinguished Raffles Hotels and Resorts, Le Royal Monceau closed in 2008 for renovations conducted by Starck, reopening its doors as a new generation “palace” hotel where art and culture are the predominant themes. La Cuisine immerses guests in a friendly, artistic and colorful decor with dishes which incorporate light and flavorful notes
in a sophisticated, generous and spontaneous style.
The Imperial’s La Brasserie was Japan’s first brasserie and enjoys an enduring reputation for its authentic assortment of fine French brasserie classics and standard western dishes Tokyo’s 122 year old Imperial has introduced and popularized across Japan over the past 12 decades.
