For an extremely limited time only, Brown's Hotel is opening an exciting and unique residency pop-up with renowned Japanese chef, Daisuke Hayashi in its oak-panelled Drawing Room.
Chef Daisuke Hayashi runs the highly celebrated restaurant, Kikunoi Hunton in Kyoto which revels Kaiseki or kaiseki-ryōri cooking - a traditional multi-course Japanese style of dining, marked by its unique dishes featuring fresh, seasonal produce. Ahead of the opening of his new restaurant, Roketsu, scheduled to launch in spring 2020 in Mayfair, Chef Hayashi will be showcasing his forthcoming restaurant exclusively at Brown’s, recreating a traditional Japanese Tea House in one of London’s most famous tea destinations.
Chef Hayashi is one of the only masters of the Kaiseki tradition globally, and the first to bring this spectacular form of Japanese cuisine to London. Having trained at the renowned Kikunoi Ryotei restaurant in Kyoto from the age of eighteen, Chef Hayashi is now at the forefront of the next generation of Japanese chefs applying a modern, progressive approach to this revered gastronomic culture.
The residency’s dining experience at Brown’s will be intimate and exclusive in nature, with only ten seats available each service. Each evening guests will be treated to an elevated tasting menu created by Chef Hayashi as part of a dynamic dining experience, which allows for guests to watch the chef finish and perfect the dishes in front of them.
Set over eight courses, this exclusive tasting menu takes you on a culinary journey of Kaiseki cuisine. The dinner culminates with an organic, stone milled, single-varietal matcha tea to finish off the evening. A full drinks selection will be available which will include sake and Japanese beers.
Brown's is a British institution that has always celebrated fine dining and nurtured world-class talent. As London's first hotel, its historic Drawing Room and world-renowned afternoon tea compliment the design of Roketsu which will transform a small section of Mayfair into a traditional Japanese tea room steeped in heritage.
