Acclaimed London restaurant Sake No Hana is celebrating the Japanese sakura cherry blossom festival with a unique installation by British artist Rebecca Louise Law. Inspired by hanami, the traditional Japanese custom of watching falling cherry blossom, the exclusive artwork will feature clouds of white flowers suspended above diners’ heads. Set to be unveiled on 20 March, it will remain on display until 12 June.
Sake No Hana is also offering a limited-edition sakura menu, curated by executive head chef Hideki Hiwatashi. Highlights include miso soup, a bento box, char-grilled dishes such as sumiyaki rib-eye beef, and a sakura-inspired cherry dessert. An exclusive Hanami cocktail is also available and is made from Akashi-tai Honjozo sake, Belsazar white vermouth, cherry liqueur and lavender bitters.
The limited-edition sakura menu is available from Monday to Saturday and costs £37 per person.
