Zuma owners Peter and Arjun Waney have secured a second site for their Inko Nito Japanese robatayaki concept, where food is cooked over charcoal.
Following the opening of a Los Angeles outpost last month, the London site will open on Soho's Broadwick Street in April in partnership with Rainer Becker.
The Waney brothersalso operate Roka (pictured), Oblix, Zuma, Coya, Merkai and the Arts Club.
The new 90-cover Inko Nito site will feature an open kitchen with dishes devised by Rainer Becker and group executive chef Hamish Brown, prepared on a robata grill.
Dishes will include including beef cheek,with spicy Korean miso and picked daikon with butter lettuce; bone marrow, smoked soy, garlic toast and shallot; and Dungeness crab tartare with wasabi mayo, chicken skin and roasted nori.
Becker said that Inko Nito was an evolution of what was the original concept for ROKA.
He added: "We've gone ‘back to basics' to create a local, accessible destination for London diners. Combining bold and adventurous flavours in a relaxed yet high-energy environment, our ambition is to become a must-visit destination, within Soho's unprecedented dining scene."
Restaurant Property secured the site for the Waney brothers. Its director David Rawlinson said that more sites were in the pipeline for their expanding empire.
He added: "Last year we secured the Great Titchfield Street premises for Greek restaurant Meraki, which opened in June. And we're delighted that we have just been able to acquire a prominent site on Broadwick Street for the second Inko Nito restaurant."
