London has a new luxury, destination restaurant to add to its collection.
Perched on the 15th floor of the Crowne Plaza London – Albert Embankment and blessed with panoramic views over the River Thames and the Houses of Parliament, Mezemiso unites two distinct global flavours to bring guests a world class fusion of Japanese and Lebanese cuisine.
Under the leadership of executive chef Madlene El Saikali, regarded as one of Lebanon’s leading chefs, the menu will showcase classic Lebanese dishes such as hummus with lamb shawarma and rice filled vine leaves with lamb cutlet’ as well as carefully crafted creations like octopus Mezemiso and shish barak.
Mezemiso will also introduce Londoners to a new dish, currently not served in any other restaurant in the city: the salted fish, which sees guests marvel at an elegant salt shell as it is brought to the table and broken to reveal a perfectly cooked portion of seabass beneath.
To complete the culinary fusion, head sushi chef, Victor Klomu, formally of King of Tempura 2004, has created an eclectic Japanese fine dining menu to rival the very best restaurants in the city
In both Japan and Lebanon, the dining table is the focal point of the home.
These values are engrained in Mezemiso which will serve many of the dishes in the centre of the table to foster the warm community that both cultures embody.
Mezemiso is also home to an outstanding array of signature cocktails inspired by historical stories and intriguing folklore.
Characterised by an unprecedented passion for detail which underpins the restaurant’s menu, design and service, the highly-anticipated Mezemiso is expected to become a shining jewel in London’s culinary crown.
