French and Japanese cuisine come together for an unlikely yet groundbreaking duo at Grand Lafayette.

A futuristic pod that gleams in all its pristine brilliance, Grand Lafayette presents its vision of modern communal dining. The setup is simple yet bold; two extra-long booths act as the spine of the main area with bistro tables opposite. Lending itself perfectly for large parties, as well as those who want to just eat as a two, the tables are here to be customised for your needs. Other than that, the restaurant is spotless and white, creating a tranquil glow that is also buzzing with activity.

The setup also lends itself brilliantly to the sharing nature of the menu. Japanese cuisine, with its distinguished morsels, is perfect for sharing, so decorate your table with all kinds of sushi and sashimi. Coming in warm, cold, rolled up, in a bento box or nestled in a taco, mix it up with California rolls, tuna nigiri, beef tacos and kingfish carpaccio. Bao buns are also there to be demolished as a group, so why not get some of those in too?

Follow your meal with, or have alongside, a bottle of sake. A traditional Japanese drink that comes with all kinds of fruity and floral undertones now's your chance to fall in love with this most unique of wines. If it's a bit too hard-hitting for you (it's not for everyone), something softer like a Japanese Slipper or Lychee Martini cocktail is just the ticket.
