This February, London’s favourite rock ‘n’ roll ramen bar, Bone Daddies, is set to open the doors to a brand new site in James Street, Marylebone.
Bringing a dose of Japanese cool to the thriving St Christopher’s Place community, the menu will feature a selection of robata and wok dishes exclusive to the new site, alongside much-loved Bone Daddies favourites. This precedes a further launch in the burgeoning NOVA development in Victoria in spring.
Located a stone’s throw away from Oxford Street and set across two floors, the interiors of Bone Daddies James Street, overseen by B3 Designers, will take inspiration from Japanese street-style aesthetic.
Upstairs the space will evoke the atmosphere of a bustling, urban marketplace with repurposed sake crates as stools, a 9 seater L-shaped bar with overhead cage storage and overlapping layers of timber, tiling and metal grille lining the walls to create the look of urban food stalls and a sense of makeshift and improvised structures.
The open kitchen located at the rear of the ground floor will enable guests to view the vibrant atmosphere amongst the chefs at work. Downstairs, a hand-painted mural with red neon Japanese script will create a downtown urban vibe. A communal table seating 14 guests and lit by industrial pendant lights will be the focal point of the basement space.
“2017 is set to be a big year for us with the opening of James Street and then a further new site in Victoria,” says Ross Shonhan, Chef Proprietor. “For both we are excited to share new dishes with our customers and keep diversifying the Bone Daddies offering.
“I am particularly excited about the new robata and wok dishes that Tom and I have been developing for James Street, as working with charcoal grills has been something we have been looking to build into the menu for some time. “
