Tokyo: Mandarin Oriental launches new restauarnt spring 2011

Mandarin Oriental Tokyo is delighted to announce the debut of a new sushi restaurant that is scheduled to open this Spring. Located on the 38th floor, this exclusive restaurant with a large floor-to-ceiling window will offer breathtaking views of the soon to be completed Tokyo Sky Tree and dynamic city panorama.
In line with the hotel’s elegant oriental interior, the hotel is again working with designer Ryu Kosaka, who will introduce the aesthetic principles of ‘Japanese beauty and ultimate simplicity.’ Mr Kosaka was the original creator of Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo’s award-winning restaurant and bar area on the 37th floor, and is excited to be involved in this new project. “I am immensely proud to be designing a new dining experience for Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo,” he said.
To capture the ambience of serenity, the restaurant’s granite floors and onyx walls have been created around the traditional Japanese Hanchiku techniques, reminiscent of Japanese roof tiles. The restaurant will feature eight seats at an exquisite counter made of age-old Japanese cypress, forming a ‘stage’ for the sushi chef.
The Sushi Chef appointed to the new dining facility is 37-year old Yuji Imaizumi who has 18 years of refined experience, and promises to enchant his ‘audience’ with his gracious and elegant hand movements, that can be observed when preparing sushi. Imaizumi is a true master of Tokyo’s authentic “Edo-mae” style of traditional sushi cuisine. Ingredients offering the best aspects of the changing seasons will be prepared differently according to the time of year. An avid scholar of fish, Imaizumi regularly interacts with the fishermen and the merchants of Tsukiji fish market, in order to ensure that guests receive the very best and freshest produce.
Epitomising the concept of ‘simple is best’, Imaizumi’s authentic sushi will provide an exciting addition to the award-winning dining options offered at Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo. The hotel is located in Nihonbashi, an area often regarded as the birthplace of sushi.
“We are delighted to bring this new restaurant to Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo,” said Christian Hassing, General Manager of Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo. “Guests will be able to enjoy superb sushi against a stylish backdrop with fantastic views overlooking the skylines of the Metropolis and Tokyo Sky Tree, which will be the tallest transmission tower in the world upon its completion.”
