The latest hot spots to check out during fashion week.


NIKKEI NICE: Japanese/Peruvian fusion food is a real category called Nikkei cuisine that’s been around in Peru forever, and it’s landing on Frith Street in Soho at Chotto Matte courtesy of Kurt Zdesar, who first brought Nobu to Europe.

Spread over three floors, the ground level features a lava stone cocktail bar for inventive takes on pisco, sochu and sake tipples; an à la carte restaurant, and a raw bar attended by a master sushi chef who used to slice and dice for the emperor of Japan. Upstairs, there’s an open robata grill and a sushi bar.

The menu is designed to be shared and includes morsels like avocado tempura with smoked purple potato, BBQ pork belly nashi pear salsa and grilled baby chicken with spicy pomegranate salsa. Andy Martin designed the interiors to evoke a buzzy Tokyo vibe with large-scale bespoke graphics by Tokyo-based painter and graffiti artist Houxo Que.
