It has been almost a year since the huge Pantechnicon opened its doors in Belgravia. While much of the building has since been open (when allowed), the basement restaurant, Sachi is only getting ready to be unveiled.
The food is based on the Nordic and Japanese theme of the rest of the building. It is headed by Executive Chef Collin Hudson (formerly Dinings and Roka) who will work alongside Pantechnicon Executive Chef Chris Golding (formerly Nobu, Zuma, Dinings). The produce will be local, wherever possible, and they say there will also be “Nordic flavors and ingredients sprinkled throughout”. On the opening menu:
- Wasabi trout and whitefish roe alongside shiitake, enoki, black garlic and mizuna.
- Pork belly and barley miso with mustard leaf
- Chicken, shio koji chili and baby peach
- Trout, whey, miso, buckwheat
- Usuzukuri sea bass, lava salt and sea buckthorn.
In addition to the traditional seating or booths, there is also an eight-seat sushi counter as well as a bar at the front of the restaurant with handcrafted cocktails and rare Japanese whiskeys and sakes from the Pantechnicon bottle shop, Sakaya. .
it should also be impressive (like the rest of the building), with furniture from Karimoku Case Study, a collaboration between Japanese furniture maker Karimoku and Copenhagen-based Norm Architects (again continuing that Nordic / Japanese theme). Ceramics, cutlery and more will be handcrafted in several Japanese workshops.
