Ishizuka Restaurant

Ishizuka Restaurant is a sublime and sophisticated space.  Kaiseki is a traditional Japanese dining experience where courses are curated, crafted and served over several hours. This 16 seat basement diner is designed to celebrate the Kaiseki tradition, but with a uniquely Australian take. The interior is bold, unusual, controversial, thought provoking yet in complete balance – just like Kaiseki.

The carefully conceived space designed by Russell & George and installed by Yarra Valley Commercial was described by Vogue Living as “Japanese haute cuisine comes to Melbourne’s Bourke Street – and it’s as stunning as you’d expect.”
