Bisushima, a modern and contemporary Japanese restaurant at the newly refurbished Page8 hotel, has opened following the end of England’s national lockdown.

Created by Chef and Restaurateur, Sergey Men, and his business partner Ruslav Ugarov, Bisushima features Men’s signature style, turning high quality produce into well-balanced and flavoursome, modern Japanese cuisine.

Occupying the sixth floor of the hotel, the 6,000 square foot venue boasts a separate bar area and two large external roof terraces directly overlooking Trafalgar Square and the bottom of Covent Garden.

The restaurant interiors are inspired by the concept of Shinrin-yoku (nature therapy) and the setting aims to be the antithesis of a modern, stressful and hectic way of living in the Western world, providing nods to nature with plenty of natural light from floor to ceiling windows surrounding the restaurant.

The menu changes seasonally and promises to only have the highest quality fish and meat. Highlights on the menu include Pork Tonkatsu – corn fed chicken with Yuan sauce and ginger, Japanese Omelette which can be shared between four people with dashimaki tomago with fresh white truffle, Butterflied Seabream on the grill for two, a range of the chef’s signature selection of Sashimi, Maki, Nigiri, Donburi and luxury Black Caviar.

Meanwhile the drinks menu features wine, sake and traditional Japanese cocktails. For wines, guests can choose between Palmer Brut NV Champagne or the delicate Pieropan Soave Classico 2016 Italy, while Sakes on offer include Kamoizumi Nigori Ginjo Summer Snow Unfiltered or Sichida 75 Junmai Yamadanishiki.

Meanwhile, cocktails includs Omotenashi – a mixture of Tanqueray 10 Gin, Sakura Vermouth, Fernet Branca and Grapefruit bitter – and Mono No Aware, which combines Toki Whisky, Muyu Jasmine, Wasabi, Ginger and LEC Soda Water.

“I want the restaurant to be a transitional space, with the whole experience depending on the time of day you visit,” says Men. “For example, in the morning we will be serving the only Japanese breakfast in London. It will be truly authentic, healthy and balanced with a huge amount of natural light and calming atmosphere.”

He adds: “Overlooking the lights of London, Bisushima will be the place to be for delicious, authentic sushi and modern dishes with Japanese essence, accompanied by interesting wines, sake and cocktails. The evening is when the restaurant will truly be alive and humming with excitement.”
