Jun Sakamoto may be the best Japanese restaurant in town, but Kosushi is not far behind it. The food is delicious and creative: a hip clientele and, in particular, the beautiful interior design, simply act as the icing on a particularly chic cake.
And what enticing icing it is. Lanterns, orange chairs, Japanese-style woodwork and the small garden with a waterfall are the modernist brainchildren of architect Arthur de Mattos Casas, who also designed the Emiliano Hotel.
There might—perhaps—be better sushi in Tokyo, but as a place to kick start an evening of Paulistano partying, Kosushi cannot be beaten.
