The critically-acclaimed Japanese restaurant, inspired by the historic Japanese art of cooking tableside on hot stones, will open on Windmill Street.
The menu is designed by Executive Chef Padam Raj Rai, and will feature sushi, sashimi and seasonally changing hot dishes like 48-hour marinated black cod, Hamachi cheeks and homemade tofu.
It will join the Islington restaurant as two of only eight restaurants in the UK to serve certified Kobe beef.
The site follows the success of its first restaurant in Islington’s Chapel Market in 2018, and will follow the same minimalist, traditional Japanese interiors, designed by Muzo Design.
The new venue’s 1,300 square foot space will seat 50 with a seven seat open sushi bar, and will feature wallpaper by 18th century Japanese ukiyo-e painter Hokusai Katsushika.
“We are delighted to be expanding the Hot Stone brand and to have found a new home in the Heart of Fitzvoria”, says co-founder and director Shrabaneswor Rai.
“After an unprecedentedly challenging year for our sector, it’s fantastic to be growing, evolving and taking the Hot Stone concept to new audiences in central London.”
