Tonkotsu ramen founders Emma Reynolds and Ken Yamada are to open a Japanese brasserie in the new St James Market development in London.
Anzu will be a teishoku concept, which is much like a bento box, with a main dish accompanied by miso soup and a bowl of rice, and served with seasonal pickles and salad.
Dishes will include seafood katsu teishoku, which features Madagascan king prawns, seabass and cod; seabass nanban teishoku; chicken teriyaki teishoku; and salmon teriyaki teishoku.
The menu will also include ramen dishes inspired by those on offer in the pair's seven Tonkotsu restaurants, along with king crab and pork gyoza, Wagyu fillet "tataki" carpaccio, and chicken karaage.
Reynolds said the pair were "ecstatic to be able to bring a more fine-dining offering to London".
She added: "The teishoku is a simple, delicious, beautiful way to eat Japanese food and we think Londoners and tourists alike will adore the flavours and simplicity."
Anzu will be part of the new St James Market development between Haymarket and Regent Street St James. The development will also feature new openings including Aquavit, which will take inspiration from its New York original but with a more relaxed approach to deliver a contemporary take on Nordic dining, Italian restaurant Veneta and Danish bakery Ole & Steen.
