Benihana, the US-based restaurant chain, is to open its third site in London, on the ground floor of the Grange Hotel near St Pauls. The company, which currently operates restaurants in Chelsea and Piccadilly, closed its other London site in Swiss Cottage earlier this year. It also has restaurants in Bucharest and Moscow. The restaurants specialise in Japanese teppanyaki cooking with chefs preparing specialities to order on hibachi grills in the middle of communal tables.
