In 1988, Kosushi opened its doors in São Paulo, Brazil. Isolated from the few traditional Japanese restaurants that, until then were concentrated in the Liberdade district, Kosushi soon became a local favorite for its freshness and high-quality ingredients combined with innovative creations. Throughout its 30 years of existence, Kosushi has established itself in São Paulo’s Itaim Bibi neighborhood and has opened a unit in Shopping Cidade Jardim, which has a more relaxed atmosphere and a terrace with gardens, perfect for private events with a fascinating view of São Paulo’s highline. Kosushi has been awarded with a Michelin Guide star in 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019. In Japanese, KO means turtle as well as the excellence of the number one. Legend has it that turtles live 10,000 years and are a symbol of happiness and a good omen. We seek long life, bringing happiness and unique dining experiences to our customers. That’s the story behind our name, Kosushi. Now, Kosushi Miami is the first international location for the brand.
