AVENUE On The Beach Kicks Off Summer 2016 at Kozu

Southampton’s hottest reservation is at Japanese Fusion restaurant Kozu, run by restauranteur and 75 Main & AM Southampton owner Zach Erdem. The restaurant offers Japanese cuisine and sushi with Peruvian influences. The menu, designed by Head Chef John Keller, features signature dishes such as the Yellowtail Serrano with smoked tomato ponzu, pickled serrano and shiso; the Kozu Roll with unagi and avocado, topped with foie gras & caviar; and the Grass Fed Filet Mignon Tobanyaki, served with ginger hoisin sause and pickled daikon. The kitchen also proudly hosts Sous Chef George Nikolopolous, formerly of Le Bernardin, and Sushi Chef Joseph Kim, formerly of Morimoto.

A new favorite among visitors and locals alike, Kozu has hosted celebrities such as Brooke Shields, Jimmy Fallon, 50 Cent and Rosanna Scotto. Aside from the delectable dishes, the chic décor also attracts diners to the restaurant’s elegant atmosphere, featuring dark wooden floors and white walls covered in colorful artwork by Raphael Mazzucco. Fresh flowers add a sense of luxury to the restaurant, as do the scorched ash tables in conjunction with rich hues and soft lighting.

For those who are looking to stay overnight, the venue also includes Hotel ZE, which is a Parisian-inspired boutique hotel with a total of 9 rooms: 5 suites and 4 standard rooms. The hotel and rooms are designed by world renowned architect Costas Kondylis, in a modern European style, and is open year round.
