It's not quite 37 floors above London, like at the Heron Tower - but Sushisamba Covent Garden will be an equally valuable destination restaurant when it opens in 2017.
This is the restaurant group's seventh Sushisamba, following openings in London, New York, Miami Beach and Las Vegas. The restaurant will offer a similar approach to its siblings, with fusion sushi inspired by nations including Japan, Brazil and Peru.
Less of a skyscraper but still iconic, Sushisamba Covent Garden will be housed at the Opera Terrace, within the central Market Building. It'll be a first for the touristy area, otherwise shunned by Londoners for its expensive low quality restaurants.
Declaring a new dawn for Covent Garden Market by encouraging Londoners in, Sushisamba will serve high quality, innovative small plates, ceviche, teradito, sushi and sashimi and larger plates, mostly comprising cuts of meat from the robata grill. But it's all about the presentation - these ornamental dishes have real shine on the plate, and suit special occasions.
