You might have heard a thing or two about the latest from Richard Caring’s Caprice Holdings as Sexy Fish in Berkeley Square is making quite the splash. Now open in the heart of Mayfair, the Asian fish and seafood restaurant has everyone putting on their glad rags and is even giving the great Chiltern Firehouse a run for its money, challenging its title of ‘hottest spot in town’.
The kitchen is run by chef Ben Orpwood (Zuma, Japanese izakaya, Daniel San) with the menu being split into robata grilled fish, a raw bar, sharing platters, market fish over charcoal and caviar. The restaurant itself has been designed by Martin Brudnizki and features work by famous artists including Frank Gehry (think installations of shimmering fish hanging above the bar and a giant crocodile crawling across the wall) and Damien Hirst. There’s also a huge ceiling mural from highly respected fashion figure Michael Roberts, Style Editor-at-Large of Vanity Fair.
The restaurant is huge, seating 190 and the ‘Coral Reef Room’ private dining area which seats 48 comes complete with its own huge coral reef tank.
We know it should all be about the food, but we kinda want to make a reservation just to have a tour of the place – who’s with us?
