Chef Daniel Calvert’s Tokyo restaurant Sézanne has taken the number one spot at Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants 2024.

In Chiyoda City, Sézanne serves neo-French cuisine that showcases modern classics with expert precision, incorporating high-quality Japanese ingredients.

Situated on the seventh floor of Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Marunouchi, the restaurant draws inspiration from the eponymous town in France’s Champagne region. The dining experience includes an extensive selection of rare Champagnes. 

Announced in the South Korean capital Seoul yesterday (27 March) the high-profile list (see below) is based on the votes of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants Academy, a gender-balanced group of 318 experts made up of food writers and critics, chefs, restaurateurs and regional culinary leaders. 

This year’s list includes restaurants from 19 cities across the region and eight new entries.

Singapore leads the rankings with nine entries, and welcomes newcomers Seroja (No.31), also the winner of the Highest New Entry Award 2024, sponsored by Nongshim, and Lolla (No.43)

Moving up 32 spots is Wing (No.5) in Hong Kong, which took the Highest Climber Award. 

Nusara (No.6) was this year’s Gin Mare Art of Hospitality Award recipient while fellow Bangkok spot Haoma (No.90) wins the Sustainable Restaurant Award. 

Mineko Kato from Tokyo’s Faro earns the coveted title of Asia’s Best Pastry Chef while Kevin Lu of Logy (No.22) in Taipei is the winner of the Beronia Asia’s Best Sommelier Award.
