Slipping almost under the radar (and frankly, only spotted because we went past it last night) is new Shoreditch sushi spot Nanashi. It's appeared on Rivington Street in a room with a pared-back modernist look.
As for the menu, it's pretty much what you expect, split into the usual mix of sushi, sashimi, gyoza, udon and tempura. A few things caught our eye, namely:
- sushi burger - fried rice buns with fresh veg, salmon or tuna in a spicy sauce vegetable tartare - with yuzu wasabi dressing chocolate fudge brownies with green tea icecream
- vegetable tartare - with yuzu wasabi dressing
- chocolate fudge brownies with green tea icecream
Other than that we know pretty much nothing about it, except that they're touting themselves as an environmentally conscious modern Japanese restaurant.
