Where Osaka meets Moscow

Yesterday we tried Arkady Novikov's sushi restaurant Fumisawa Sushi, on the ground floor of the Berlin house. Fumisawa Sushi is named after the chef from Osaka.

The restaurant is small; seats are limited for 30 guests in the main and eight additional seats in the two separate "private dining rooms" of the restaurant. The authentic contemporary Japanese elegance of the ambience and design, with a contrast of natural materials, created by the famous Moscow designer Irina Glik from Geometriya Studio, the dimmed light and the open kitchen at the back of the restaurant where the chefs themselves doing their stuff right in front of your very eyes, add intimacy to this place.

The restaurant also offers a few tables outside, perfect to enjoy the spring and summer in Moscow.Arkady Novikov's restaurants show a high level, and you always know that there will be excellent quality, as the Fumisawa Sushi.

Fumisawa Sushi delivers a high-quality product (the fish is flown in from Japan, especially), the material is super fresh, preparation and presentation perfect.

We ordered a few things, some rolls, scallop carpaccio 950Rub, wasabi prawns 800Rub, and sashimi 2500Rub and they were exceptional and worth the price!

The fish melted in the mouth, the rolls were tasty and light (especially the waitress choice, warm roll with tuna and shrimp, DEVINE!) with little rice and plenty of fish and fresh vegetables.

Each roll is very different from anything that you probably had and tried in network cafes before.

For me so far the most tasty sushi in Moscow.

This place also scores with the varied wine list and the friendly and helpful service.

The white wine of the day by the glass starts at 450Rub, and bottle from 4000Rub for a Riesling.

I can recommend the Grüner Veltliner from Austria 4500Rub.

Fumisawa Sushi is an ideal place for business meetings, dinner or lunch with friends. Still, for a romantic rendezvous, I would suggest one of the private dining rooms, simply because this location is incredibly popular, and it's always a little bit noisy.

If you love authentic Japanese cuisine, be sure to go, you will not regret it.
