Dazzling City spot, Sushisamba, has announced it will open a second London location in early 2017 – taking over the (rather beautiful) former home of Brasserie Blanc in Covent Garden’s iconic Market Building.
Sushisamba Covent Garden will occupy the Opera Terrace, which is located at the top of the Grade II-listed building, comprises a balcony and has rooftop views across the Piazza. Though they may not be quite as stunning as the vistas from the City original which is housed on the 39th floor of Heron Tower on Bishopsgate and boasts one of London’s top roof terraces.
The Opera Terrace’s existing conservatory will be replaced with a new Eric Parry glazed design, creating a new addition to the Market Building. The Covent Garden site’s menus will feature new and signature dishes with an emphasis on piquant flavours and creative presentation, while the drinks list will offer a selection of handcrafted cocktails using cultural spirits such as shochu, pisco and sake.
Sushisamba, known for its “heavenly” Japanese/South American fusion fare is operated by Samba Brands Management and has restaurants in London, New York, Las Vegas and Miami.
