The Araki

World-renowned sushi master Mitsuhiro Araki, who was awarded three Michelin-stars for his previous restaurant in Tokyo, has opened a restaurant in Mayfair.

Specialising in Edomae-sushi (translating to Edo style), the sushi created by Araki (one of just a handful of sushi chefs to be awarded three Michelin stars) is concentrated on focusing on the flavours of one ingredient, and uniquly incorporates European produce (including black caviar and white Alba truffle). Araki himself is quite a showman, preparing dishes in front of diners on a wooden counter.

The restaurant accommodates just nine people up at the dining counter and six in a private dining room - making for an intimate and unique atmosphere. The (no-choice) Sushi Omakase menu (does not include tempura, meat, teriyaki or karaage) is priced at £310 per person.
