Husband-and-wife chef team Tamas Naszai and Tomoko Hasegawa, who’ve worked at Tokimeite and Sake No Hana between them, are opening ten-seat Japanese restaurant Roji in partnership with the group behind Chisou and Sushi Atelier. Roji, which can translate to ‘journey’, ‘path’ or ‘hidden alley’, will be tucked away on South Molton Street in Mayfair and will serve up a seasonal menu of sushi, pickled and preserved dishes, and charcoal-grilled dishes, with a focus on British produce like Cornish seafood and veggies from Nama Yasai farm in East Sussex. The pair will also be showcasing crockery made by small family producers in both the UK and Japan.
Dinners will cost £150 (lunch will come in a lower price point) excluding drinks, with the option to add on a super premium sake pairing featuring rare and limited edition bottles. Bookings will open for Roji in January, with priority given to Chisou and Sushi Atelier customers, but if you can’t wait that long, the pair are holding preview dinners at Chisou on 19th, 20th, 26th & 27th January.
