Takayama owns New York's three-Michelin-starred sushi restaurant Masa (often referred to as serving one of the most expensive tasting menus in America) and next-door Japanese restaurant Bar Masa - since 2004. He also runs Kappo Masa on Madison Avenue in partnership with art gallerist Larry Gagosian.
Masa serves a single set omakase tasting menu (a series of dishes curated from the chef’s own selection) and the experience lasts around two hours. Expect a similar experience when Masa opens in London - with fish from Japan flown in directly to him from Tsujiki Fish Market - served in a high end authentic Japanese setting. Located in the Dining Hall - its set around an oval counter with 40 seats - offering both a set menu and a la carte.
