Bone Daddies founder Ross Shonhan has confrimed  a second site for his bao bun concept Flesh & Buns in Fitzrovia, as flagged up by MCA in December 2017.

Opening in the Copyright development on Berners Street in June, the restaurant will be a Japanese style izakaya, but will explore Nikkei Peruvian cuisine.

The 170-cover restaurant will sit across one floor and will be divided in to three sections using oak Japanese posts and panelling, with 15 counter seats at the bar.

At the back of the site, an open kitchen has counter dining for up to 22, with a semi-private dining room for 18.

Shonhan said: “Almost five years ago, we were the first dedicated bao restaurant to open in London. It was met with mixture of surprise, intrigue and interest, and I vowed I would never open another one. Half a decade later, we have a fantastically loyal following and my wounds have healed.

”We refurbished Flesh & Buns Covent Garden last year to improve the izakaya look, in the aim to begin to separate the Flesh & Buns brand from the ramen bars – and the new launch in Fitzrovia will be its flagship. I ultimately want to create Izakaya inspired restaurants that are great fun but still affordable.”
