Fitzroy’s Ichi Ni Nana Izakaya manages to blend the contemporary and traditional with total ease. The sushi bar slings some of the best sushi in Melbourne every day, while the main kitchen delivers a series of classic Japanese eats and fusion creations.

ICHI NI NANA IZAKAYA at HOTEL FITZROY offers a combination of small bites and larger plates, focusing on traditional Japanese dishes, executed with a modern twist.

The menu has several distinct sections – small and gyoza, sushi, sashimi and nigiri, kushiyaki, robatayaki and signature banquet menus, populated with draft beers, wines, saké and cocktails.

Grab a seat in the huge courtyard with a retractable glass roof or inside the wood-clad dining room that’s always heaving with fans. 

A little-known secret is that the restaurant also has access to ROOFTOP DINING, which is usually only open for private events, sometimes puts guests up on the roof so ask when making a booking. The space is a proper hidden gem in Melbourne.
