Tori Tori Santa Fe is the fifth project from the renowned line of Japanese restaurants in Mexico City, this time located on the ground floor of a corporate building in the Santa Fe district.
Inspired by the subtlety and sobrietyof Japanese craft skill, the serene and monochromatic atmosphere emphasizes the scale of the space with two hanging elements made in holm oak. Of monumental size and expression, their texture evokes Samurai armor; above all, the breastplate known in Japanese as dō. One of these elements demarcates the area for "grab and go" food. The larger of the two rises up over the main teppanyaki table as a cylindrical extraction hood, both transformed into lightingobjects that define and delimit, thanks to their scale, the two poles of the restaurant.
The main wall, home to the sushi bar, is swathed in low-reliefs designed around the abstract stylization of the Kanji characters with pure geometric graphics. Besides the central area, the restaurant also boasts a terrace with teppanyaki tables and a private dining room.
