It seems that Gordon Ramsay is great at everything – from juicy steaks and other English classics to dishes of high French, and now Japanese cuisine. The famous British chef has opened a new restaurant, Lucky Cat, which serves Asian sushi. The interiors in jet black were designed by AfroditiKrassa.

The main source of inspiration for designers was “kissas” – jazz bars in Tokyo in the 1930s. “We wanted to collect an unusual reference,” says studio founder Aphroditi Krassa. “Everyone associates Japanese restaurants with a certain style, but when we discovered these jazz bars, we realized that Tokyo had its own mysterious and atmospheric world. Kissas was a cross between gentlemen’s clubs and illegal eateries. “

The central dining area features dark wood flooring and an ink-black ceiling. The walls are decorated with bamboo panels, also painted in black or linen screens. Spherical lamps and copper sconces cast a soft dim light, creating a cozy twilight.

The restaurant also has three functional areas: The Raw bar, which serves exclusively sushi and sashimi, a chef’s table from where visitors can watch the cooking process, and a private room for special occasions.

Playful references to the name of the restaurant are found everywhere in the interior details, from stone cat figurines to tail-shaped hooks where guests hang their bags. The design of the back wall of the bar, decorated with 300 “maneki-neko” figures, which are considered symbols of good luck in Japan, also attracts the eye. www.afroditi.com
