Kei Kobayashi’s restaurant
Fascinated by fashion, the 36-year-old young Japanese chef Kei Kobayashi does not try to hide his penchant for beautiful objects. His restaurant, which was renovated just last year, has become a showroom for French artisan work. The Christofle silverware, Jaune de Chrome porcelain dishes, and the majestic Saint-Louis chandelier all bring a classic-chic touch to the very hip 1st arrondissement of Paris. Restaurant Kei - 1 Michelin star - 5 rue du Coq Héron - Paris 01.
Completed in 2015 and overlooking the Ocean, One Riverside Park is a luxury residence designed by the famous architects Goldstein Hill&West.
