A modern Japanese eatery from one of Australia’s finest restaurant groups.
175 Flinders Lane
Set across three floors of impeccably styled, intimate dining spaces, the newest (and most hyped) venture of Melbourne’s Lucas Group (Chin Chin, Kong) is making serious waves in a city renowned for its saturated culinary landscape. From the luxurious top floor comprising a private dining area, twelve-seat chef’s table and Chablis Bar, to the more accessible sushi bar on the ground floor, Kisumé is a triumph in modern Japanese cuisine. Taking traditional concepts and marrying them with a contemporary, Australian flair, Chris Lucas has assembled an impressive team (including sommelier Jonathan Ross from Eleven Madison) to create an experience that is utterly unique and profoundly impressive.
