New high-end Japanese restaurant to launch in London

New high-end Japanese restaurant to launch in London

A new high-end Japanese restaurant is set to launch in London later this year, with the opening of Watatsumi at the Club Quarters hotel near Trafalgar Square.

Housed in the site formerly occupied by Italian mozzarella bar Obika, the restaurant will be named after a mythological sea god. It will showcase both traditional and modern Japanese cooking.

The kitchen will be headed up by executive chef Otto Teeranggoon, whose career has included stints at Japanese restaurants such as Zuma and Roka, Miyama and Nozomi in London as well as Dubai's iconic Burj el Arab hotel.

Front of house will be overseen by Ginger Zerbetto, who spent five years with Nobu Restaurants first in London and then in New York, Tokyo and Milan. Most recently he worked at Buddha Bar London.

The menu at Watatsumi will feature small dishes next to a selection of sushi and sashimi as well as a range of tartars and Teeranggoon's signature dishes of trio of oysters, tuna or salmon martinis and red snapper salads.
