Sushi master Mitsuhiro Araki to open London restaurant

Japanese chef and restaurateur Mitsuhiro Araki is set to open a new restaurant called ‘The Araki' in London's Regent Street.

Araki, who was awarded three star Michelin status for his previous restaurant in Tokyo, will open the new venture within the £250m W4 development at 12 New Burlington Street. It will be his only restaurant, following his move to London, and will accommodate nine at the dining counter and six in a private dining room.

A sushi master, Araki specialises in the simplest form of Edomae-sushi, served in a traditional way. He opened Araki in 2000, when he was 34 years old, in the residential area of Setagayaku, an area in the outskirts of Tokyo, but moved to the Ginza in 2010 where he received three Michelin stars in 2011 and 2012.

David Shaw, head of the Regent Street portfolio at the Crown Estate, which has developed W4, said: "We are honoured that the Michelin starred sushi master, chef-owner Mitsuhiro Araki, has chosen to locate his new London restaurant within the Regent Street portfolio. This is the latest example of how Regent Street continues to be a global destination that combines quality, heritage, style and success to deliver a world class environment for people and business alike."
