A new era for Tong Yen
A truly Parisian institution, Tong Yen has recently been taken over by the Black Code group, which already owns Kinugawa, Yoko and Orient Extrême. So, the décor has had a complete facelift, bringing more brightness to the room and its alcoves allowing for intimate conversations, all in a chic and designer ambiance. While famous former owner Thérèse continues to keep a close watch over the dining room, chef Ashima is in charge in the kitchen. Having spent time at the Peninsula and the Mandarin in Tokyo, he offers a pared-down cuisine, which reworks the main classic dishes that first solidified Tong Yen’s reputation whilst also introducing several of the Black Code group’s signature dishes. A contemporary and international vision of Chinese gourmet cuisine.
