Our dear fans — We’ve got big news for you!

Today, Chef Dominique Ansel announced that he will be opening up his first international flagship in Tokyo, Japan, in partnership with Transit General Group and TSI Holdings (together they not only operate some of the top fashion brands in the world, but also have created amazingly thoughtful and first tiered service food establishments).

“We’re so excited to bring a little bit of New York and Paris to Tokyo,” says Chef. “But we will also create something distinctive just for the people in Japan. Creativity and hard work is at the heart of everything we do. And we will personally see to it.” This will be our first store outside New York and our second shop ever. “We work conservatively and with dedication,” says Chef. “One good store is worth 100 bad ones.”

Here’s what we do know: The shop is expected to open in the early summer of 2015 in the Omotesando Hills area (as close a home to Soho as we know!). Stay tuned for updates. (photo taken by Chef at sunrise)
