Nov 22, 21Information

DOWN THE STAIRS is pleased to announce its reopening with new friends. Beginning Saturday, November 20, 2021, the newly conceived culinary project will bring together the sensibilities of Paris-based restaurant MAISON with ARTS & SCIENCE.

For many years, A&S has enjoyed a close dialogue and collaboration with Chef Sota Atsumi, owner and director of MAISON. Chef Atsumi's extraordinary creations were first presented at A&S as part of our food event . His idea that delicious food is born from quality ingredients is deeply connected to the A&S sensibility. As a longer-term culinary project, our new collaboration promises an opportunity to share in depth the stories and experiences of his carefully-sourced ingredients with our visitors.

The menu is developed by MAISON and features locally produced seasonal Japanese ingredients selected by Chef Atsumi. Chef Ryoichi Matsumoto has come from MAISON to direct our kitchen in Tokyo along with our pastry chef Miki Yokomakura. We hope the dishes will please body and soul.

- Yoshino herb farm salad, apple sauce
