Well, the world outside is frightful — but inside the luxury emporium that is Faradays, there’s always something delightful. In one of the good pieces of news we have heard this week, the flagship Faraday’s Bar is now open Sundays, by popular demand, for a weekly culinary celebration.
Reserve a table between noon and 4pm on any Sunday from this week onwards, and you will be able to indulge in an exquisite pairing of Veuve Clicquot’s voluptuous La Grande Dame 2008 with an Omakase Nigiri Box (by Anthony Price of Private Fine Dining fame).
Japanese for ‘trust the chef’, Omakase is always deliciously decadent, and Price’s take on a colourful yet refined Nigiri Box will proudly feature the finest ingredients from around the world. Resting atop a display of koshihikari rice, the gastronomical delight includes the likes of New Zealand kingfish, Mount Cook alpine salmon and deepwater scampi, Hokkaido scallop with ikura, A4 Wagyu beef with crayfish aioli and truffle fries, and zebra cuttlefish ink tamagoyaki with crayfish mayo and Oscietra caviar.
The perfect pairing is also the ideal accompaniment to browsing Faradays’ exquisite ready-to-wear and home décor offering from a coterie of coveted brands, including Givenchy, Alaïa, Loewe and Alexandre Vauthier.
If, like us, you think you’ll be in need of a treat by the time Sunday comes around, we recommend booking in today to ensure you have something to look forward to.
Bookings are essential. Call (09) 217 1017 or email [email protected] to make a reservation.
