“In between Rue de Grenelle and Rue Saint Dominique, Restaurant Pertinence opened it door at the end of March.

Ryunosuke NAITO and Kwen LIEW offer their first intimate and elegant table. The French cuisine is adorned with Japanese technique to draw all its quintessence.

In the shelter of the Fontaine de Mars, Pertinence is a hidden place where only 18 guests can be served.”

Ryu & Kwen


They met each other when Restaurant Antoine was created in 2011 (with Chef Mickaël Féval) and after great experiences, Ryu and Kwen decided to start their food journey in an intimate and discreet place, with their own style, where french cuisine combines with japanese elegance.

Ryu learned in prestigious establishments begining in Taillevent (3 stars) with Alain Soliverès but also under the orders of Yannick Alléno at Cheval blanc, Restaurant 1947 in Courchevel and Meurice (3 Michelin stars), as a sous chef . He remained at his position after the direction passed to Alain Ducasse. In 2014, Ryu had an opportunity to join association and being the head chef of Bistrot Alexandre III.

Meanwhile, Kwen had a pastry course in France and formed in different countries.

She joined Ryu at Bistrot Alexandre III with the position of sous chef.
