Restaurant chain Bone Daddies is set to open a new ramen bar in London's James Street in Marylebone later this month.
The menu will feature a selection of robata and wok dishes exclusive to the new site, alongside Bone Daddies staples.
The opening comes ahead of the launch another branch in the Nova development in Victoria in spring.
Set across two floors, the James Street site will be designed by B3 Designers and takes its inspiration from the Japanese street-style aesthetic.
There will be a nine-seater, L-shaped bar, an open kitchen at the rear of the ground floor. Downstairs there will be a hand-painted mural with red neon Japanese script and a communal table seating 14 guests and lit by industrial pendant lights.
Dishes on the menu will include a 20-hour pork bone broth tonkotsu and sweet spicy pig bones. They will sit alongside new creations developed by chef proprietor Ross Shonhan and group executive chef Tom Moxon such as a new kushiyaki section that will feature skewers of different ingredients, including chicken, ox cheek, salmon, prawns and shiitake mushrooms marinated in the likes of kimchee butter and sweet chilli ponzu, slow-cooked over a robata grill.
Shonhan said: "2017 is set to be a big year for us with the opening of James Street and then a further new site in Victoria. For both we are excited to share new dishes with our customers and keep diversifying the Bone Daddies offering. I am particularly excited about the new robata and wok dishes that Tom and I have been developing for James Street, as working with charcoal grills has been something we have been looking to build into the menu for some time."
Bone Daddies started life in 2012 and now has six sites.
