Good news for sushi-lovers, Hot Stone is back (post the news it would permanently close last month) having received new investment to secure its future. A new beginning signals a new menu and the Islington restaurant reopens on 4th December with a stunning new Omakase concept that showcases inventive molecular gastronomy and impeccable top-end sushi.
Extraordinary times call for an extraordinary dining experience (after all we deserve a treat post lockdown) and Hot Stone’s Omakase is just that. With only a maximum of six diners at any one time, every seat is at the Chef’s table. Executive Chef Padam Raj Rai has over 19 years of experience under his belt, having previously worked at Tsukiji, Nobu and Zuma, and diners can expect some of the finest skilled Japanese food to rival that of any of its West End counterparts.
The new Omakase menu is made up of 17 meticulously prepared courses (or 18 with the addition of two Kobe dishes) – expect picture-perfect kobachi small plates, sushi, sashimi and Ishiyaki hot stone dishes.
Ingredients show provenance and are treated with integrity – expect scallops, abalone, butterfish, oysters, truffle caviar and Japanese Wagyu or Kobe beef with accompaniments such as freshly grated Japanese wasabi and 38-year-old aged soy sauce. Desserts break boundaries with an aubergine ice cream and wagyu chocolate.
Available Wednesday-Sunday throughout December (excluding Christmas Day), the Omakase menu is offered at the introductory price of £120 per person with Wagyu beef (usually £150 pp), or £160 per person with Kobe (usually £200).
