Weekend Affair | Le Musée

Run by owner and head chef, Sapporo native Makoto Ishii, Le Musée(ル・ミュゼ) is at the cutting edge of a new style of Japanese cooking where a traditional, minimal approach is fused with innovative ways of cooking to express each seasonal ingredient.

Located in the quaint Miyanomori neighbourhood, Le Musée offers artistic culinary delights using Hokkaido’s bountiful ingredients. Its uniqueness was acknowledged when the restaurant earned a star in Michelin’s special edition guide on Hokkaido.

As of April 2014, the restaurant initiated “Le Musée x Art Project” まちなかアート・プロジェクトcollaborating with contemporary artists in Hokkaido. In addition to holding special restaurant exhibitions that change according to the four seasons, special limited collaboration menus are also offered.
