Jun Sakamoto

São Paulo, Brazil

Chef Jun Sakamoto's namesake restaurant is so faithful a rendition of a classic omakase destination, from the unmarked entrance to the open sushi counters and polished-wood surfaces, that you may well think you've been transported to Tokyo. But no, this is very much São Paulo, with the region's spectacular seafood showcased in style. Seating only 35 guests, diners are invited to dine à la carte and only eight at each sitting can indulge in the house's omakase selection, where either Sakamoto or his second-in-command Ryuzo Nishimura will prepare the freshest sushi and sashimi right in front of you. In a city of over 600 Japanese restaurants, we'd wager this is one of the best and it turns out Michelin agree, having awarded the venue one star for its outstanding offering.
