A new venture from one-time Nobu chef Scott Hallsworth, Kurobuta brings to London the Japanese izakaya tradition with its all-day food and drink, casual vibes and socialising opportunities. Light installations, canvases depicting Tokyo street life, a hand-made slate bar and an open theatre kitchen create the right mood for a menu that kicks off with breakfast, pastries and teas before moving into top gear. Diners will be encouraged to graze and share from a line-up that might offer, say, warm salmon with yuzu truffle miso and puffed rice, sweetcorn kariage with sweet-and-sour ponzu sauce or beef tataki with onion and garlic crisps. Bento boxes will also feature, while the drinks list includes playful fruity infusions and cocktails such as ‘hobo’ (a saké-based aperitif drunk from a glass covered with a paper bag).
