Dial in to omakase multicourse dining, courtesy of Kappo Cuisine Master Fumio Suzuki (ex Kita-Ooji and Ginza Uchiyama, Tokyo) here at Zuicho which has replaced the three-Michelin-starred Sushi Shikon. It may not be the easiest restaurant to find but if you like the idea of Kaiseki formality mixed with more relaxed izakaya dining, Zuicho will surely press your buttons.
Eating here is a multi-course experience that takes impeccably sourced fish – from octopus and sea urchin to mackerel, tuna and eel – direct from Tokyo’s celebrated Tsukiji market, and transforms them into delicate works of art that taste as good as they look. There’s soup, shinogi, tempura, sashimi, and beef alongside the usual condiments, and why not splash out on a bottle of Junmai Daiginjo saké or take their recommended pairings for a heightened experience.
This style of eating may not be to all tastes but if you’re looking for simply sublime, Japanese culinary harmony, you may well find Zuicho puts you on a direct line to heaven. Small private room completes the experience.
