Get the Broadsheet Table at Kisumé
This moody restaurant is one of the best spots for fine-tuned Japanese food and it’s always hard-to-book – now it’s giving you access to members-only tables.
Inside this three-tiered Flinders Lane restaurant, there’s a unique dining experience on every level. Up top, there’s a private kaiseki-style dining room and a bar dedicated to chablis (offering 80 steely chardonnays that pair indisputably well with sashimi). At street level, a vast New York-style sushi bar with an intimate view of the chefs at work. And downstairs, a windowless, bustling basement dining room with a hot kitchen and semi-private nook.
Expect cold dishes like simple salmon sashimi and sushi rolls, prepared by one of three qualified sushi masters on-site, and in the hot section, moreish snacks and umami-fuelled share plates.
Our top picks on the menu are miso smoked eggplant served on rice crackers; pork gyoza with nori furikake; and wagyu scotch fillet topped with nashi soy and charred lime.
Every day of the week, Kisumé is giving us access to tables that have previously been unbookable by the public, and for the first time have been made available through Broadsheet Access.
Get a table for two or four, every night at 6pm and 8.30pm.
You can book 30 days in advance (and a minimum of three days prior) of your desired booking date.
