Kyoto meets Crete when it comes to this epic fusion menu.
If the closest you’ve come to mixing Japan and the Med is taking an itsu bento box on the plane to Madrid, prepare to have your mind blown. Bloomsbury Street Kitchen is here with a kickass kitchen mashup that means you can eat yellowtail sashimi and halloumi gyros in the same meal. Result. Start with a cocktail, or get involved with the culinary theme and get sipping on a sake/Sangria. Hey, have both - you’ve got one foot in Kyoto and one foot in Crete tonight. Caring is sharing, so grab that mate who’s not crazy protective over their plate. From the Mediterranean menu you might have herbed lamb cutlets with hummus, then from the Japanese options get serious with soft-shell-crab & spicy ponzu. All washed down with a punchy Chilli Margarita, natch.
The space is slick, chic and modern. Think glazed porcelain tiles with white-washed exposed brickwork, and serious day-to-night vibes. Come for brunch, or let a long lunch turn into cocktails and nibbles before hitting the town. BarChick rocked up for dinner then finished with a Smoked Old Fashioned in the outdoor garden. Even this is pure foliage fusion with Mediterranean olive trees and Japanese sago palms. Kudos on the commitment to a theme, guys.
