[ESC], the eatery and lounge located inside Four Seasons Hotel Silicon Valley, introduces Wanderlust at the Lobby Lounge pop-up experience. The first in the pop-up series is Ichi-go ichi-e, East Meets West that showcases a Japanese and Mediterranean amalgamated cuisine, where the captivating allure of two rich culinary traditions intertwine, creating a truly unique and memorable dining experience. Patrons can expect to step into a culinary world that combines the vibrant flavours of Japanese cuisine with the aromatic ingredients and culinary techniques of the Mediterranean region. Ichi-go ichi-e is a popular Japanese term that means “Treasure an unrepeatable moment,” a reminder to fully engage with the present moment and appreciate the people and unique experiences we encounter.

The five-course set menu begins with a selection of meticulously prepared Kushi Oysters, followed by a Tuna Tataki, where the delicate freshness of fish meets the zesty Mediterranean tang of sun-drenched tomatoes. The next course includes a torched Wagyu Beef served with smoked vegetables, accompanied by vibrant Japanese-inspired sauce.

Executive Chef Daniel Garcia says, “Each dish is a masterpiece, reflecting the culinary expertise of our talented chefs who draw inspiration from both cultures to create a symphony of flavours that dance across your palate.” He further adds, “Complement your meal with a carefully curated wine pairing, featuring exceptional vintages, or indulge in a perfect cocktail pairing crafted with a fusion of traditional Japanese and Mediterranean ingredients.”
