Mayfair sushi eatery gets third Michelin star

UK-Japan News October 2017

A London sushi restaurant with just nine seats has become one of a handful of British restaurants to receive three Michelin stars, the Daily Mail reported on 3 October.

Araki, which is located in Mayfair, was established in 2014 by chef Mitsuhiro Araki after he closed his Tokyo restaurant and set himself the challenge of largely using European fish. The establishment serves edomae sushi prepared according to a 200-year-old tradition.

The restaurant’s set menu costs £300 per head.
