Former Nobu head chef Scott Hallsworth has launched a new Japanese restaurant in Holborn. Wabi serves modern dishes like tea-smoked duck tataki and a foie gras Martini with umeshu jelly, nashi and black vinegar. The restaurant also features a sushi bar overseen by Taiji Maruyama (also ex-Nobu) and a pastry bar serving European desserts with Japanese influences.

Dined at the new Wabi last week and thought it was stunning. Head chef Scott has taken the Nobu experience to a whole new level making existing Japanese restaurants look dated. The tempura batter is phenomenal and the balance of flavours in the cooking is exquisite. The Sashimi is of the highest quality and I can't wait to go back.
