Get the Broadsheet Table at Saké Double Bay
The Japanese restaurant is always bustling – now it’s giving you access to members-only tables.
Saké Double Bay is nothing like the original Saké. Though it builds on the legacy of its fellow institutions, everything about it feels edgier than its counterparts. Inside, there’s a custom-built robata (a traditional Japanese grill) and a standalone sushi counter fitted with elegant glass cases that showcase the fish. Plus, plenty of bar seating and a long communal table.
The menu is a combination of old Saké faves and tantalising dishes that are exclusive to this outpost, including charcoal-fired skewers and Tajima wagyu striploin. There’s also a special sushi omakase option, which lets you hand over all decisions to the chef, tailored to your budget. And if you really want the full Saké experience, opt for a sake pairing or a round of fun Japanese cocktails to match.
Our top picks from the menu are the nori crisps piled high with cubes of tuna and kingfish; the signature hiramasa kingfish dressed in coriander-infused ponzu, lime and jalapeno kosho; and the saucy negima yakitori chicken skewers, cooked in yuzu joki and shichimi.
Every day of the week, Saké Double Bay is giving us access to tables that have been made available for the first time through Broadsheet Access.
Get a table for two or four from Tuesday to Sunday at 6.30pm or 8pm, or for two or four on Friday and Saturday at 12.30pm.
You can book 30 days in advance (and a minimum of two days prior) of your desired booking date.
