    It’s all change for Matsuri St James as it finally shuts up shop for the last time after 23 years, reopening its doors several months and £2.5m later with a brand new name and menu.

    The new restaurant, called Onodera, will branch off from its predecessor’s signature teppanyaki dish of meat and veg, cooked on a flat iron grill Japanese style. The new menu will offer a much broader range of Japanese delicacies, with a modern twist. There’ll be a considerable sake list,

  • kiri food

    Mayfair's Japanese restaurant Chisou has just opened Kiri. They're describing it as the baby of a family which also has restaurants in Knightsbridge and Chiswick. What that means in practice is that it'll serve modern Japanese dishes with some Korean influences. So you'll find Korean fried chicken alongside miso black cod and spiced sweet potato croquettes alongside hirata buns and kimchee fried rice with Japanese mushrooms.

    We're quite tempted by the sound of

While the rest of the restaurant bedded down, they've been holding this private dining space back but it's about to open this summer.

    The room will be called Kisetsu (which means season in

    It's fair to say that the Edgware Road probably isn't the first place you'd think of dining in some sort of modernist Japanese sky high pub. But that's exactly what's opening there this Spring. KOJAWAN - the name is an amalgam of Korea, Japan and Taiwan - is the brainchild of Bjorn Van Der Horst (Greenhouse, La Noisette, Eastside Inn) and Omar Romero (Rhodes Twenty Four, Rosewood).

    They're taking over the dining room on the 23rd floor of the Hilton
