In the center of Rome, on the top floors of Palazzo Fendi, owned by the iconic Roman fashion house, is located Zuma, the fusion restaurant of contemporary Japanese cuisine.
The restaurant, projected by the Japanese designer Muramatsu Noriyosh, is known for its unique concept, for its exclusive gastronomic creations and for the charm of its location. In fact, on the fifth floor of the building there is the bar & lounge area, characterized by a large terrace with a splendid view over the city.
“step away from the traditional” is the translation of the word Zuma, as well as the main philosophy of the place and the type of specialty it offers, according to an important Japanese value linked to conviviality and food: the one of Izakaya.
Refined ingredients, raw materials of extreme quality, a cuisine strongly linked to its cultural identity but at the same time contemporary, cosmopolitan and reinterpreted in a modern key.
These are the factors that define the uniqueness of the place to which must be added the aforementioned Izakaya style which represents a completely different way of conceiving restaurants compared to what we are used to.
To mention the words of Zuma’s Head Chef, Dario Schiavo “The Izakaya philosophy refers to an approach to informal and convivial cuisine, originating in Japan, which puts sharing among the guests at the center of the experience. – We have 3 different kitchens, the main kitchen, the Sushi bar and the Robata grill, and all our dishes are served continuously throughout the dinner, without a particular order compared to the traditional Italian service. The reason is simple: Izakaya cuisine allows you to share and taste different dishes during your dinner. And this is, in my opinion, a truly unique way of being at the table and an incredible convivial experience.”
In addition, the essentiality, the elegance of the details and the care for the atmosphere and aesthetics of the place are among the greatest qualities that make Zuma a relaxing and exclusive experience, ideal for business meetings or less formal meetings but in any case worthy of being lived with finesse and originality.
