SUSHISAMBA: coming to London this summer!
This will be the brands debut on the European market and the whopping 1247 square metre space (Architects CetraRuddy) boasts 2 outdoor terraces alongside a funky indoor dining area. The venue will be open daily for brunch, lunch and dinner and executive Chef, Jeffrey Kipp, formerly Daylesford Organic, Gordon Ramsay’s Royal Hospital Road, Citrus in St Martin, and Charlie Trotter’s in Chicago, heads up the kitchens. SushiSamba promises to deliver a unique blend of Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian cuisine, culture, music and striking design to the City of London. Only at SushiSamba will you find a unique blend of Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian cuisine, music and design.
SushiSamba is born of the energy and spirit of these three distinct cultures — a tri-cultural coalition that took root in the early 20th century when thousands of Japanese emigrants traveled to South America’s fertile soil to cultivate coffee plantations and find their fortune. In bustling cities like Lima in Peru and São Paulo in Brazil, the integration of Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian cultures flourished.
This cultural phenomenon launched a culinary coup. Hearty moquecas and colorful seviches found a place at the table along side simple miso soup and tender sashimi. SushiSamba serves these traditional dishes, plus more inventive fare, including Sashimi Seviche, Tuna Tataki and our Wagyu Beef Gunkan. Equal parts imagination and history, the SushiSamba experience is truly unique.
SushiSamba swung open its doors on Park Avenue South in New York City in 1999. Since then, we’ve proudly opened five locations, including a second in Manhattan, as well as Miami, Chicago and Las Vegas. In the summer of 2012, we will open our first international location in London’s Heron Tower. In November 2009, we celebrated 10 years of singular, soulful style, and superlative dining and service.
Beating at the heart of every SushiSamba is a deep appreciation for enjoying life and celebrating with friends!
