inko nito to open

After launching in LA at the end of last year, Japanese restaurant INKO NITO, (from Rainer Becker, the man behind Zuma, Roka and Oblix) is opening in Soho next month. A robata grill will take centre stage, with both counter seating and tables arranged at different heights around the restaurant so everyone can get a good view. As well as grill dishes like beef cheek with spicy Korean miso and picked daikon and bone marrow with smoked soy, garlic toast and shallot, there’ll be a range of sharing plates including Dungeness crab tartare with wasabi mayo, tofu kara-age, and nigkai style sushi (that’s roasted nori and sushi rice served with a variety of toppings) on the menu. As well as sake and Japanese beer, INKO NITO will also serve up cocktails like the Nori Old Fashioned and Inko Spritz on tap. Sounds like it’s gonna be an interesting new addition to London’s Japanese restaurant scene.
