Alain Ducasse

“ As each one of my restaurants, MUNI ALAIN DUCASSE is unique. Arashiyama is an iconic location to create a culinary destination in Kyoto, the thousand-year capital. The menu will be created exclusively for this restaurant, a contemporary French menu that I will personally conceive with Alessandro Guardiani, using carefully selected ingredients from local producers, and to be enjoyed in an incredible location, together, deliver an unforgettable experience.”

Alain Ducasse, who hails from the Landes region in the Southwest of France, is known for his innovation, attention to detail and dedication to both quality and technique. His desire to pass on this knowledge lies at the heart of all his projects. He is considered to be one of the most renowned chefs of his generation, and is at the helm of three restaurants each awarded by three Michelin stars in Monaco (Le Louis XV-Alain Ducasse à l’Hôtel de Paris), Paris (Alain Ducasse au Plaza Athénée) and London (Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester).

Alessandro Guardiani

MUNI KYOTO Executive Chef

Born in 1993, originally from San Remo, Italy, Alessandro, discovered cooking like many Italians at the side of his mother and grandmother. Passionate from an early age, he joined the Ruffini Aicardi Institute to develop his culinary skills. After a few internships in the kitchens of starred hotels, he joined Franck Cerutti’s brigade at the Hotel de Paris in Monaco in 2012, as a commis and then as first commis at the restaurant Le Grill. Alessandro then joined two other Alain Ducasse restaurants. First, in 2014, Le Grill at the Dorchester, in London, where he finished chef de partie. Then, in 2016, Le Meurice Alain Ducasse (two Michelin stars), in Paris where he became assistant chef to Amaury Bouhours.

With these ten years of perfectly successful experiences, Alain Ducasse has offered Alessandro the opportunity to take over the kitchen at Muni Kyoto from July 1, 2022.

” Alessandro is perfectly equipped to take the reins of the restaurants of this exceptional hotel. I know that he will bring his personal touch with all his competence. “

- Alain Ducasse

” I would like to thank Mr. Ducasse for his confidence, and I am happy to take up this new challenge in Kyoto, a city full of heritage and culinary history. “
