A new sushi restaurant is rolling into town.
If you haven’t heard of Sexy Fish before, you may remember Jess Glynne infamously moaning to Twitter about their swanky dress code last summer – which meant her designer tracksuit, no matter what label was emblazoned on it, didn’t cut the mustard. And rightly so. Sexy Fish is a pretty *fancy* place, located in London’s prestigious Mayfair district that’s exclusively reserved for the elite of the city. It’s so *fancy*, in fact, that it’s led by Michelin-awarded chef Bjoern Weissgerber, who earned his first star at the ripe age of 27.
And now, the celeb-loved restaurant is reportedly eyeing up its first venture outside of the capital, with Place North West reporting that the brand is tipped to take over the former Armani unit near would-be competitor Australasia, who currently occupy the basement of the same unit.
While the London venue is known for its out-there, artistic decor – which even boasts sculptural pieces created by iconic artist Damien Hirst – it’s unknown what sushi fans can expect here in Manchester, although, it’s sure to be just as elegant and aquatic as the original venue, judging by the Caprice group’s current arsanel of restaurants, which also includes The Ivy Spinningfields.
Sexy Fish is yet to confirm whether it’ll be making a venture up North for a new opening, however, should the news be true, Mancs can expect high-end, opulent sushi dishes, plenty of Japanese whiskies and beautiful surroundings.
Stay tuned for more news.
