Kemuri is reborn as an authentic sensory journey through Japan without leaving Marbella

With the same majesty with which the strokes of the Asian brush are captured on paper in Shodō, also known as the ancient art of Japanese calligraphy, Kemuri arrived in Marbella last year thanks to Dani García to offer the purity of the gastronomy of the land of the rising sun in a unique setting.

Conceived as a tribute by the Marbella chef to one of the most fascinating cuisines in the world, it has recently reopened its doors with a proposal that maintains its original essence but elevated to its highest exponent. Thus, Kemuri is today a place to savor millenary Japan without looking at the clock in search of Umami; the place of the izakaya, where you are invited to stay, and where you will find traditional Japanese cuisine combined with Mediterranean flavours. 

Using seasonal, high-quality products, the space offers a unique experience based on the omakase or trust in the chef. Thus, in the main dining area, there is a bar for 14 people, where the itamae or head chef is part of the diner’s experience. You will place yourself in the hands of the chef in order to be able to enjoy his proposal. A beautiful Japanese tradition that Dani García has wanted to maintain in Kemuri for the surprise and enjoyment of those who decide to trust him.

The Kemuri experience is complemented and taken to the highest level with a very special liquid proposal featuring two unique pairing options: Nana and Juu. In addition, the sake menu stands out, consisting of a meticulous selection of approximately 40 different sakes selected by the Sake Sommelier, Dominik Ponomarew. A journey through the different Japanese styles and prefectures with bottles as unique as Niizawa’s SANKYO SUPER 7 2021, which happens to be one of the most outstanding in Andalusia. 

With a capacity for up to 14 people, this is the first restaurant concept that Dani García has dedicated to Japanese cuisine, paying homage to friends and colleagues such as chef Nobu Matsuhisa. Cutting it short, an exclusive space designed to offer a unique experience in an incomparable setting.

Kemuri thus joins the group of restaurants that the Grupo Dani García already has in his hometown, including Bibo, Leña and Alelí, its most recent opening with an Italian accent.
