That’s why we’re going to spill out some Japanese restaurants for you to celebrate your own International Sushi Day!

When entering Madame Sushita, (Paseo de la Habana 15) you´ll discover a sort of Rococo library, with large shelves full of books – no less than 12,000 – covering the walls, the highest ceilings, large lamps and voluptuous plants. Its impeccable interior design – velvet sofas, cushions of fancy materials and exquisite tableware – makes us feel immediately in the Paris of the 18th century, although the flavors transfer us to the most exotic Japan!
