If you’re feeling cold as the autumn months draw in, remember you can always stand in a corner.
They’re usually about 90°.
…Or you can head along to one of London’s preeminent Japanese spots, Anzu – since they’ve just launched their toasty autumnal menu.
A sleek but welcoming brasserie tucked inside the plush new St. James Market development, the space itself sports Japanese styled wood panelled walls, huge paper pendant lights and a glittering bar that’s home to a very autumn-friendly selection of Japanese whiskies and warm sakes.
Adding to those charms is their fleet of new dishes, like yellowtail sashimi delicately scented with truffle, guinea fowl kara-age, and bamboo shoot gyoza dumplings – following up with mains like steamed wild bass topped with noodles made from cuttlefish, a duck and konyakku udon pot, and grilled mustard greens with crispy tofu and soy-cured egg yolk.
You’ll be able to round it all off with yuzu and blackberry cheesecake with a sesame crumb; an elegant, Japanese-influenced cocktail; or the chocolate sando – a sandwich of chocolate and guinness cake, filled with miso caramel ice cream.
Perfect for when you’re sat in the corner.
NOTE: Anzu’s Autumn menu is now up and running. You can find out more and book on their website HERE.
