Taka Japanese restaurant will be opening at the former Providores and Tapa Room site in London’s Marylebone, which closed in July after 18 years.
Peter Gordon and Michael McGrath's seminal the Providores and Tapa Room closed as the owners wished to pursue other, personal projects and "travel and relax after working our socks off for 18 years".
Taka already has one site in Mayfair, which opened in 2017, and is planning to relaunch the space in April or May 2020. The restaurants are overseen by brother and sister Andrey and Anastasia Datsenko.
Taka offers Japanese dishes including tataki, tempura, sashimi platters and yakitori alongside cocktails using sake, Japanese whiskies and liqueurs.
Tom Richards, surveyor at Restaurant Property, which acted for Taka in securing the 3,000sq ft site on Marylebone High Street, said: “Taka is a fantastic contemporary Japanese restaurant currently based in Shepherd’s Market in Mayfair. I am sure it will be an instant hit and an excellent addition to Marylebone High Street!”
The lease for the site runs until 2026.
