Westin Chosun Hotel, one of major five star hotels in Seoul, Korea, will re-open its Japanese restarant 'Sushi Cho' today.
The face-lifted restaurant, which used to be at the basement floor, will be relocated on the top floor of the hotel, and this time it will have a business alliance with Tokyo's famed restaurant Kyubei. Actually a chef from Kyubei, Mr. Matsumoto Mizuho, will be dispatched to, and will stay at, Sushi Cho to ensure the quality.
This culinary event follows the introduction of Pierre Gagnaire a Seoul, which opened at Lotte Hotel last month.
For the first two days of opening, today and tomorrow, Kyubei's chef owner Mr. Imada Yousuke will serve sushi to the guests.
The restaurant has two "live sushi" rooms, one accommodating up to four guests and the other up to fourteen people. Those guests who make reservations at the live sushi room will be exclusively served by chef Matsumoto, although today and tomorrow only the exclusive sushi-serving chef will be Mr. Imada (What an honor).
I reserved at the live sushi room tonight, and I will post a follow-up report.
