Sexy Fish is a new and sophisticated Asian fish and seafood restaurant from Caprice Holdings (who run a string of hugely successful restaurants including The Ivy, J Sheekey and Scott's) located on Berkeley Square in Mayfair. Not only does Sexy Fish serve food of the very highest of standards, the cutting-edge art and design in which it is served is seen as a key part of the restaurant's offering. Martin Brudnizki Design Studio brings a design which includes artwork from the likes of Frank Gehry, Damien Hirst and Michael Roberts, and a sense of mid-century glamour and refinement. An open kitchen adds to the culinary theatre as does the spectacular 3.5m fresh fish and seafood display.
Asian-inspired menus will concentrate on fish and seafood, and will be overseen by young British-born Executive Chef Ben Orpwood, whose previous experience spans roles in Istanbul, Dubai, Sydney and Tokyo, including restaurants such as Zuma, Toko, the Sydney Collective Group, and with the Japanese izakaya, Daniel San. Amongst other things the menu covers a raw bar, salads, market fish cooked over charcoal, and meat, birds and fish from the Robata grill, to tempura, sharing platters, buns, skewers and dumplings. Expect expert chefs to use a variety of cooking styles and techniques, creating beautifully presented plates to their guests.
Restaurants with art
The show-stopping decor at Sexy Fish includes a ceiling mural of coral reef by Michael Roberts, sparkly fish lamps by Frank Gehry, and bronze mermaids by Damien Hirst. All especially commissioned, naturally.
Toughest places to get a table
Rita Ora and Kate Moss were at the opening party of this pescaterian-themed restaurant owned by the Caprice group. To eat here you'll have to grab a late lunch or an early dinner around 4 and 5 pm - we can't guarantee you'll spot any celebs at those times, but you will be dining among artworks by Damien Hirst and Frank Gehry.
