Mayfair's Sake no Hana, the Japanese restaurant from Hakkasan Group, is celebrating the change of season with an autumnal menu and maple leaf installation, in partnership with Belvedere vodka and Ruinart Champagne.
Executive Head Chef Hideki Hiwatashi has created a limited-edition menu utilising seasonal ingredients and flavours for guests to enjoy whilst sipping on warming cocktails, Japanese sake, and whisky.
The installation, created by The Edit Events, offers guests the chance to experience ‘momiji-gari’, the Japanese tradition of viewing the maple leaves as they dine on modern authentic Japanese cuisine.
The limited-edition Autumn Leaves dishes include Kinoko misojitate, wild mushroom and chilli yuzu miso soup; Shitake tofu, shiitake mushrooms filled with homemade tofu and wasabi sauce; Salmon kurumi miso yaki, pan fried Loch Duart salmon with walnuts and Kyoto miso; Tori sumiyaki, chargrilled miso chicken with sesame chilli miso; Gunma wagyu beef maki, asparagus, caramelised onion and kizami wasabi.
The Autumn Leaf dessert is a hazelnut feuilletine and hazelnut chocolate parfait with chocolate and maple syrup soup and a mascarpone mousse.
Limited edition drinks include a warming Maple toddy utilising Hennessy Fine de Cognac, Akashi-Tai Umeshu sake, ginger, maple, chocolate and edible rice paper art in addition to the Shisho 54, Belvedere vodka, Midori, lime, shiso, Fever-Tree slimline tonic and Prosecco, and Koyo nora using belvedere vodka, cardamom, mandarin, yuzu and edible rice paper art.
The Autumn Leaf installation and the limited-edition menu will be available at Sake no Hana from now until 24 November.
