Leading luxury hospitality company Four Seasons continues to set the standard for culinary excellence around the globe, celebrating its latest award wins in style and inviting guests to join in the excitement.

Fresh off the June 5 announcement of the World's 50 Best Restaurants, SÉZANNE, the esteemed French culinary gem nestled within Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Marunouchi, earned the 15th spot on the prestigious list. Earlier this year, SÉZANNE also took the #1 position in Asia's 50 Best Restaurants and the distinguished title of Best Restaurant in Japan for 2024.

"Our restaurants and bars are the heartbeat of our hotels. Not only do they enhance the stay experience and foster memorable moments for our guests, they also serve as an anchor to the community, as a place for connection and camaraderie," says Rainer Stampfer, President, Global Operations, Hotels and Resorts, Four Seasons. "We are so proud of everything our teams around the world have accomplished. Through our consistent pursuit of culinary innovation and a most caring service team, we continue to elevate our brand and drive industry leadership."
