Sato landed his first job when he was just thirteen, gutting fish at Tokyo’s Nagahama Ichiba fish market. It was the beginning of a remarkable culinary journey that's seen him rise through the ranks of some of the world’s most revered kitchen brigades: Narisawa (**) and Ryu Gin (***); Restaurant Gordon Ramsay (***) and Trinity (*); Eleven Madison Park (***); and, most recently, Restaurant Story (*), where he was head chef. Sato describes his style as “progressive Japanese with a European accent (or vice versa)”, and his Carousel menu promises to be a taste of things to come. Japanese for ‘memories’, his first solo project Omoide is set to be one of the standout openings of 2018. You heard it here first.
*please note, nearly all of Sato's dishes contain soy - unfortunately that means we're unable to cater for coeliacs this week*
