Sushisamba London | Swanky, Sky-High Dining
SEX AND THE CITY, EPISODE 68
– At Sushisamba, Barrow & 7th, NYC
[Samantha arrives, and sits down].
Richard: In a wildly optimistic gesture, I ordered you a Dirty Martini.
Samantha: Dirty Martini? [Throws drink in his face…] Dirty Bastard.
[Samantha stands up, and leaves].
And so it was that Sushisamba – which famously serves a unique fusion of Japanese/ Peruvian/ Brazilian food (and dirty martinis) – quickly became the place to be, opening a second restaurant in New York before launching in Vegas, Chicago, Miami and now… London.
Perched on floors 38 & 39 in the City’s Heron Tower (just below Duck & Waffle), Sushisamba is straddled by two rooftop bars, one of which has a late-night cocktail bar centred around a full-size orange tree. But what else would you expect from somewhere named Sushisamba?
You can expect the dishes that have won the place unanimous praise across the globe, with wagyu gyoza and sweet soy sauce to start; before moving onto a yellowtail tiradito with jalapeño and lemongrass; pork belly Peruvian skewers scorched on the robata grill with butterscotch miso; or a good ol’ T-bone steak with burnt cabbage and yuka root fries.
You can expect to soak up sweeping views over the city with cocktails like the Miso Mule, Smoked Plum Negroni, or Plantain Punch, with rum, plantain purée, aromatised wine, banana and cacao; before sharing some alfajores for dessert, with dulce de leche, black salt, and actual gold.
And finally, they’re expecting you to enjoy yourself – with nightly DJs soundtracking the sunset over the city.
And with those views, it’d be rude not to.
NOTE: Sushisamba is open daily from lunch until 11.30pm. You can find out more, and reserve a table, here. If. you can’t make it over to this location, check out their London branch, Sushisamba Covent Garden.
