Izakaya, we’re told, means “alcohol with a roof”.
And Kazu, we’re told, is an izakaya.
So although Kazu may at first glance seem like a traditional sushi joint, we can expect a little more fun than formality, as well as a fine menu of Japanese classics.
It comes to us from the former head chef of the critically lauded Chisou, and will be placed square in the middle of London’s unofficial restaurant centre of gravity, Charlotte Street. Thanks to Dham Kodituwakku’s three decades experience in the kitchen, he’s going to be putting together a menu of sushi, sashimi, traditional izakaya bar snacks, which include everything from black cod, to rock shrimp tempura, to wagyu beef.
You can also expect plenty of alcohol, and although details are scant at the moment, some beers, cocktails, and sake wouldn’t be outside the real of possibility.
Oh, and a roof.
NOTE: Kazu is due to open in early December. We’ll be back then with the full scoop. In the meantime, you can check out their website right HERE.
