Alain Ducasse: Treating Tokyo to a New Chocolate Factory
Alain Ducasse has no intention of stopping. Having opened a store dedicated to chocolate and its production, this French chef is now opening a second shop where cacao is king. Japan was the first country to welcome the new brand ‘Le Manufacture de chocolat’ from the three-star chef.
This new store, situated in the Roppongi Hills district, truly demonstrates the never ending enthusiasm for the creations produced by this French artisan. On the menu, you’ll find the brand’s classics but also some limited-edition chocolate ranges. Catch them all… Or try to, at least.
