Brett Redman, the Australian chef behind Michelin Bib Gourmand winning Elliot’s and The Richmond in Hackney, is to open a new Japanese street food restaurant in Dalston this autumn.

Jidori will serve a selection of yakitori skewers – chicken grilled over hot coals – alongside small plates and rice dishes for lunch and dinner.

Redman has been developing the restaurant in partnership with Natalie Lee-Joe, a former creative strategist at Saatchi & Saatchi, for over two years after the pair felt there was a gap in the market for accessible, casual and fun Japanese food in London.

Inspired by Tokyo’s street food scene, the 40-cover site will feature seating around an open kitchen and grill designed to create an experience as close to a Japanese yakitori-ya as possible.

A ‘fun and accessible’ drinks menu will serve a range of cocktails with Japanese spirits, as well as craft beers, whiskies and sake.

It will be the second restaurant launch for the Redman this year following the opening of The Richmond in March.

The chef first opened Elliot's in Bethnal Green in 2006, followed by the Pavilion in Victoria Park in 2007.

A second incarnation of Elliot's opened in Borough Market in 2011, winning a Michelin Bib Gourmand in its first year.

Jidori will open at 89, Kingsland High Street, London.
