Endo Kazutoshi is said to be the chef Heston Blumenthal calls when he wants sushi, his craft honed by a career spanning 21 years. Born in Yokohama, Kazutoshi left Japan to experience other cultures, in turn undertaking an apprenticeship at the famed El Bulli, gaining a different perspective to traditional Japanese food which he has expanded upon throughout his career. He has also worked as the executive chef for Japanese restaurant group Zuma. This pop-up comes ahead of Kazutoshi’s eagerly awaited new restaurant — Endo at Rotunda — at the top of the former BBC Television Centre in White City
The pop-up takes place in newly designed “hidden” space that includes a sushi bar and seats only eight guests. The 15-course menu (dishes include: Scottish scallop oshinogi, lemon sole usuzukuri and wagyu beef agemono) is available on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings - with two sittings each night at 6pm and 8.30pm. A sake or wine pairing menu is also available. The 15-course menu is priced at £150 per guest.
