Hanover Green Retail & Shaftesbury are delighted to announce restaurant brand INKO NITO will open its first UK site in London at 55 Broadwick Street, where Carnaby meets Soho this May 2018.
A new project from Rainer Becker, creator and co-founder of Zuma, ROKA, Oblix and developed alongside Group Executive Chef Hamish Brown, INKO NITO arrives in London following a successful launch in Los Angeles’ Art District, in December 2017.
The new 3,100 sq ft casual dining concept will accommodate 90 covers and will serve unconventional robatayaki Japanese cuisine, promising a dynamic menu of bold sharing dishes from £11 and signature cocktails from £9.
Designed by Los Angeles-based Studio Mai, the restaurant has been inspired by the buzz and lively atmosphere of dining in a street market filled with casual counter seating to create an engaging social space. Situated in the heart of the restaurant is the open robata grill, offering dishes such as beef cheek with spicy Korean miso or bone marrow with smoked soy, garlic toast and shallot.
Reaffirming London as the restaurant capital of the world, Shaftesbury continues to provide exciting F&B opportunities in their highly popular, sought-after locations.
Julia Wilkinson, Group Restaurant Strategy Executive, Shaftesbury: “Carnaby and Soho are leading destinations in London’s ever-evolving food scene and our newest opening INKO NITO takes this a step further. Shaftesbury champion emerging concepts, independent operators and talented young restaurateurs and this is reflected across our dynamic portfolio.”
Creator and co-founder of INKO NITO, Rainer Becker: “INKO NITO” is an evolution of what was the original concept for ROKA. We’ve gone ‘back to basics’ to create a local, accessible destination for London diners. Combining bold and adventurous flavours in a relaxed yet high-energy environment, our ambition is to become a must-visit destination, within Soho’s unprecedented dining scene.”
Hanover Green Retail & Shaftesbury has welcomed seven new eateries to Carnaby and Soho since Autumn 2017, including pasta concept, Pastaio from Stevie Parle on Ganton Street, all-day taqueria and Mezcal and Margarita bar Breddos Tacos, Kingly Street. Whilst Rupert Street, Soho has welcomed ‘Evelyn’s Table’ at The Blue Posts from the team behind The Palomar and The Barbary as well as Aegean bar and restaurant Hovarda, from the group behind the lauded Yosma and Frescobaldi restaurants.
INKO NITO is an exciting addition to Broadwick Street joining Neil Rankin’s BBQ and open fire pit restaurant Temper, Tapas Brindisa, who champion the stunning meats, fish and vegetables of Spain and the only UK store for premium Swedish accessories brand Axel Arigato.
