A new Japanese yakitori restaurant named Jidori, from chef Brett Redman, is to open in London's Dalston in autumn this year.
The open kitchen will feature a custom-made artisanal-style Kama Asa grill, which will use sustainable charcoal from the London Log Company.
The yakitori skewer selection will be offered with sides such as Japanese small plates and rice dishes created from ingredients including Goosnargh chickens, ike jime fish, Spanish yuzu and Japanese herbs and vegetables from Lewes-based agricultural growers Nama Yasai.
The cocktail list will include Japanese spirits and ingredients, alongside local and Japanese craft beers, whiskies and sake.
The restaurant's branding has been drawn up by Lee-Joe, and designed by Giles Reid using wood and brass trim, with the aim of creating a minimalist yet intimate feel.
This will be the fifth site from 34-year-old chef Brett Redman, who set up his first restaurant, Elliot's on Bethnal Green Road, in 2006.
He then set up the Pavilion in Victoria Park in 2007, and another Elliot's in Borough Market in 2011, before opening the Richmond restaurant and bar in Hackney in April this year.
Along with Lee-Joe, he has travelled across Asia and specifically Japan, and has been working on the Jidori concept for the past two years.
