A new Japanese restaurant named after the Japanese expression for the feeling of ‘butterflies’ in the stomach – Tokimeitē - is to open in Mayfair this autumn.

Internationally renowned chef Yoshihiro Murata - who holds seven Michelin stars across his three restaurants in Kyoto and Tokyo - has launched the project in collaboration with the Zeh-Noh Group, part of Japan’s largest agricultural cooperative.

Split over three floors, the 70-cover site will feature an open kitchen with design inspired by Japanese festivals, shrines and temples.

Murata has created a menu based on authentic ‘wa-shoku’ cuisine featuring the ‘finest’ Japanese ingredients such as Wagyu beef, alongside a range of premium sakes, shochu and whiskies.

A ‘Chef’s Table’ private dining space will be available shortly after launch, with space for up to eight guests.

Murata is internationally acclaimed as the master of kaiseki – the highest level in Japanese cuisine – and has collaborated with chefs worldwide including Alain Ducasse, René Redzepi and Heston Blumenthal.

He was previously involved in the launch of Hakkasan's Japanese restaurant Chyrsan in Broadgate West, which closed in early 2013 within six months of opening.

Tokimeitē will open at 23 Conduit Street, London.
