Visitors to Japan often return with incredible stories around the artform that is expertly-made sushi, from renowned sushi masters. The title of head sushi chef is extremely prestigious, and as such, is not loosely awarded. Known as Itamae in Japanese, which translates to “in front of the board”, the head sushi chef is ultimately the one in front of the chopping board, responsible for the production of all the sushi.

For Restaurant Month 2024 we have gone in search of the best examples of this traditional Japanese food in the city centre and this one-off event will take diners to four of the top Japanese restaurants in the city, with a dish and an accompanying drink at each stop over during the course of the evening.

Expect to discover and savour an array of different sushi styles meticulously crafted by resident sushi experts. Your evening will start at MASU by Nic Watt at Sky City, before heading to Kome Sake Bar in commercial Bay, then Harbourside Sake Bar and finishing off at Japanese Bistro Zen. Each dish will be paired with a cocktail or wine.

This immersive event promises to be both educational and indulgent, offering a deeper appreciation for the artistry and diversity of this famed Japanese delicacy.

Note: the menu for this event is set and dietary requirements cannot be catered to. The event will incorporate a walk of 5 - 10 minutes between each restaurant.
