First-time restaurateur Josh Ahmet is to launch a Japanese-Peruvian fusion restaurant on Chelsea’s King’s Road in the site that was once home to Busaba.

Nakanojo is billed as a casual fine-dining concept, offering Nikkei-inspired cuisine with a focus on fresh and high-quality ingredients. 

The restaurant will span the basement and ground floor of the 4,512 sq ft space, which will have a contemporary feel with Asian-influenced graffiti murals, wooden tables and chairs and dark walls.   

Ahmet is a successful property developer and martial artist, going by the name of The Millionaire Monk on social media. 

Landlord Sloane Stanley says that 100% of the estates restaurants, bars and cafés have now reopened following the easing of indoor hospitality restrictions.

This includes newcomer 28º–50º, which recently launches its third London location in the space that was previously home to Byron. 

The prominent 2,884 sq ft corner unit accommodates up to 80 covers across its indoor and alfresco spaces. Like its older siblings, 28º–50º Chelsea will combine an extensive selection of  wines with a modern European menu. 

“We have been careful to select the very best locations for our restaurants, and this prime location on the King’s Road is the perfect site to have launched our latest 28º–50º space,” says 28º–50º owner Richard Green.

“Whether customers are dropping in for a drink, dining with loved ones, or joining us for an event, here at 28º–50º we are proud of our reputation for delivering exceptional wine, cuisine and service in a very relaxed atmosphere.” 

Property director at Sloane Stanley Hannah Grievson said that the reopenings and recent signings demonstrated the strength of the estate as well as the growing sense of localism, which is driving interest and engagement in the area.

“The fact that 100% of our existing F&B venues have reopened is also testament to how well local audiences are responding to our distinctive line-up of operators,” she says. “We have plenty to celebrate across the portfolio at the moment and are looking forward to continuing to work closely with our independents to maintain this momentum.”
