This July, Nobu Shoreditch, the latest addition to the world-renowned Japanese restaurant empire and hotel group will open within the new Nobu Hotel Shoreditch, located just off of Great Eastern Street.
The 240-seat restaurant will lie at the heart of the building, span almost the entire footprint of the hotel and provide an exciting new setting to enjoy Nobu signature dishes, world-class sushi, and Shoreditch-inspired cocktails.
The simple design encompasses a palette of concrete, bronze, rich oak timber and glass, with warm textured textiles and a sleek wooden finish. The result is a minimal and contemporary venue that hopes to be accepted by the fussy local community. As well as traditional shared seating arrangements and booth dining, an exclusive 10-seat sushi bar and 18-seat chef’s table will give diners the option to witness the chefs at work.
Overseen by Executive Chef Greg Seregi and Executive Sushi Chef Noriyoshi Teruya, the Nobu Shoreditch menu will feature many of Nobu’s signature dishes perfected over 23 years, such as Black Cod with Miso, and Yellowtail Sashimi with Jalapeno, as well as distinctive new dishes inspired by the creativity and vibrancy of the area, and the Omakase tasting menu. Exclusive Nobu Shoreditch menu items include Hokaido Scallops with Foie Gras, Sautéed Japanese Mushrooms, Aji Matsuhisa and aged Balsamic; and Sea Bass with Yuzu Kosho, Tomato and Cucumber Salsa, Honey Truffle and Black Truffle Shavings.
Unlike its previous incarnations, Nobu Shoreditch will be the first London Nobu to offer breakfast, with delicious sounding dishes of Benedict Matsuhisa with Crab, Sauteed Spinach, Crispy Tofu and Shiso Bearnaise; and Matcha Waffle with Chicken and Smoked Maple Ponzu that share the ethos of the menu.
The bar will boast one of the largest Japanese Whisky libraries in London, as well as a rare selection of Hokesetsu Sakes available in only three locations throughout the UK. A private courtyard will provide al-fresco dining in the warmer month and completes the new venue’s offerings. We look forward to seeing how the finished product will look and sincerely hope that the new menu is as good as it sounds.
