Former Zuma head chef Ross Shonhan to open solo venture in Soho

Former Zuma head chef Ross Shonhan is set to launch his first solo venture, with the opening of a Japanese-style pub in Soho.

Bone Daddies, which will open on 1 November, will serve a menu of ramen featuring up to 10 different flavours as well as a range of Japanese snacks. It will be the first restaurant outside Japan to serve Asahi's Super Dry, as well as a selection of micro-brewed beers.

Named after the bone stock that forms the basis of ramen dishes, fish, pork and chicken broths will be served with different toppings including Nitamago, a marinated soft-boiled egg.

Interiors at the 64-seat Bone Daddies will be reminiscent of Japanese pubs, Izakayas, featuring high stools and benches as well as bottles of seasonally infused Shochu. Restaurant manager is Robert Murray.

Bone Daddies will be open until midnight serving drinks and food.

Australian Shonhan moved to London in 2001 and joined Asia de Cuba as senior chef de partie before moving to the Dorchester Hotel as junior sous chef. He then moved to the USA where he worked with Stephan Pyles and in 2005 joined Nobu to oversee the opening of the group's Dallas restaurant together with Nobu Matsuhisa. In 2007, he was head hunted by Rainer Becker and joined Zuma in Knightsbridge as head chef.
