Momochi Now

On Nov. 1, a new restaurant is set to open inside the Seahawk Galleria, the commercial zone inside the Hilton Fukuoka Sea Hawk resort hotel with excellent access from both the city center and the nearby beach.

The Genkai Sea is one of Japan’s richest fishing grounds, and the new restaurant, Watalian Seven Tables, will serve Italian dishes that make the most of Fukuoka’s proximity to fresh seafood. The head chef, who honed his chops at the Japanese restaurant Keien, uses the techniques of washoku (Japanese cuisine) to create Italian dishes from a wealth of ingredients sourced from throughout Kyushu.

These dishes include a variety of seasonal seafood landed in Kyushu served as carpaccio and seasoned with light olive oil from Asakura City and seasonal kabosu and other local citrus fruits.

Or you can try the creamy risotto paired with domestically sourced eel, which is cooked to fluffy perfection and flavored with a sweet sauce.The pungent wasabi adds just the right accent. Other unique combinations include a seafood pasta with a sauce made from bonito broth.

There are seven tables arranged spaciously inside the well-lit restaurant, and you can either enjoy a course or order from the menu a la carte.

• Lunch course: pasta lunch ¥3,300 (appetizer, salad, soup, pasta, dessert, coffee), Watalian Lunch: ¥5,500 (pasta Lunch + fish + meat)
• Dinner course: ¥11,000, ¥16,500
