Nobu's Shoreditch restaurant to open in July

Londoners will be able to order breakfast at Nobu for the first time when the Japanese group launches its debut European hotel in Shoreditch this summer.

Further details have been released on the long-awaited project, which was first announced in 2014.

Opening on 1 July, the huge Shoreditch restaurant will seat 240 covers, including a 10-cover sushi bar and 18-seat chef’s table with views of the main kitchen and sushi chefs at work.

Executive chef Greg Seregi's menu features early morning dishes such as matcha waffles with chicken and smoked maple ponzu; and a take on eggs benedict with crab, sautéed spinach, crispy tofu and shiso béarnaise.

Bento boxes and cold soba noodles will be available for lunch, while new dinner plates include Hokaido scallops with foie gras and sautéed Japanese mushrooms; and sea bass with yuzu kosho, tomato and cucumber salsa, honey truffle and black truffle shavings.

The hotel also claims its cocktail bar will be the only place in the UK – other than Nobu’s two other London restaurants – to serve Hokusetsu sakes.

Nobu was founded by actor Robert De Niro, chef Nobu Matsuhisa and former film producer Meir Teper in 1993.

The group opened its first London restaurant in the capital's Metropolitan Hotel in 1997 before launching a second site on Berkeley Street in 2005. Both restaurants won Michelin stars within a year of opening, but were stripped of the accolades in the 2014 Michelin Guide.

The Nobu empire now includes more than 30 restaurants worldwide and hotels in Las Vegas, Manila and Miami.

Eight further hotel openings are planned for the next two years in sites including Malibu, Riyadh, Chicago and Bahrain.
