It's not so easy to find a truly unique restaurant in Paris, but this one fits that bill beautifully. Here you have a Japanese chef, trained in Italian cuisine, serving up his dishes in the heart of Paris, in an elegant restaurant just next to the Eglise Saint.-Roch. Chef Akira Sugiura, a graduate of Japan's most prestigious culinary school, serves up signature pasta dishes from the Italian tradition with Japanese and French influences. It's also not outside of the realm to be served your main dish of fish, fowl or meat with a pair of chopsticks here. The setting is exquisite, as this restaurant within a hotel sits up against a private courtyard walkway next to the historic Eglise St. Roch, known in Parisian circles as the church where all the celebrities go.

- Lunch: "The setting of this dining room matches the elegance of the cuisine here. France is famous for its two hour lunches, and this is one of those places where you can enjoy your expertly prepared Italian meal by a Japanese chef while you talk shop in a garden-like setting next to the courtyard of an ancient Parisian stone church."
- Best for Lunch Because: One may have heard about Asian-fusion cuisine, but not so much Japanese-Italian fusion cuisine. This is a singular restaurant even for Parisian standards.
