Who could forget the exceptionally modern setting of the original Yabani in Sodeco, architected by none other than Bernard Khoury? You’d enter the lobby, only to descend in an elevator to a swanky spaceship-like dining venue. The only thing that could break your transfixed gaze was the other-worldly Japanese cuisine.

In 2014, Yabani relocated to the ground floor of a residential complex just across from l’Avenue du Parc, where the interior details are even more stunning than their predecessor’s (check out the bathrooms!), and the food, equally exquisite. There are some 117 menu items, so I won’t dwell on each one, but you’d be amiss if you didn’t try the Panko Salmon, Yabani’s panached take on a crispy salmon salad.
