The Concept

The restaurant will offer a mastermind menu expertly crafted by Executive Chef Masaki Sugisaki, which presents innovative dishes that combine techniques of Japanese cuisine with locally-sourced ingredients.

Born in Saitama, Japan, Masaki brings with him a wealth of experience from his time working at restaurants in Japan and his years at Nobu. Combining his Japanese roots with European cooking techniques, he hopes his dishes will bring joy to his guests table whilst ensuring a traceable and sustainable dining experience.

Sushi, Sashimi and local catch of the day will be sourced from the local fishermen that fish in the bay in front of the Verdura resort whilst dishes such as tofu with cherry tomato & tomato miso and the double cooked Sicilian aubergine with dengaku-miso offer a taste of the garden at Verdura Resort.

Bento Boxes & Masterclasses

Growing up in Nagasaki Japan, famous for its fresh water fishing, Mika was immersed in sushi and the culture that surrounds it from a very young age. Mika’s passion for working with fresh fish is evident in her incredible skill demonstrated as Head Sushi Chef that she has held for over three years.

Guests will also be able to enjoy the delights of Dinings SW3 in the privacy of their room, suite or Private Villa with the Bento Boxes, prepared daily for guests who pre-order; the perfect dinner option for guests wishing to feast away from the restaurant, overlooking the sparkling Mediterranean.

In addition to the restaurant, Dinings SW3 will offer a Sushi Roll Masterclass twice a week with their expert Sushi chef, Mika Yoshinaga.

With an ethos rooted in sustainability and eliminating food waste wherever possible, Dinings SW3 sources its fish from Cornish dayboats, as well as a handful of ethical producers across Europe and Japan.

Masaki and his team aim to keep their menu bursting with the best of the season in order to combat food miles and energy output from growing produce year-round. Each and every dish is prepared with the utmost of respect for the ingredient, minimising food waste and adding to their sustainability practices.

Social and environmental responsibility has been made a core feature of Verdura resort, from the architecture of its buildings to its everyday management.
