Angelo Sato re-launches Yatai in Fitzrovia, joins new concept Momomo on Goodge Street

July 13, 2022

Angelo Sato, the chef behind acclaimed restaurant Humble Chicken, has re-launched his Japanese QSR concept Yatai on Fitzrovia’s Goodge Street.

Yatai has opened at 34 Goodge Street, in a 545 sq ft unit, serving up sushi bowls, donburi, and katsu curry and sandos.  The launch marks a new chapter for the brand, which proved popular as part of the original line-up at Market Hall’s West End flagship, but only traded for a few months due to the pandemic.

Angelo was born in Tokyo and began his career in food aged 14.  He has worked in Michelin starred kitchens around the world, including in London Restaurant Gordon RamsayTrinity and Restaurant Story, before launching Humble Chicken in Soho in 2021.

Goodge Street has also recently welcomed new concept Momomo at 1 Charlotte Place. Occupying 820 sq ft in a corner unit opposite Fabrique, Momomo’s menu focuses on Himalayan dumplings – momos – with the flavours of Tibet, Nepal, Bhutan and India, turning them into meals with customisable bases, sauces and garnishes.

DCL acted for landlord Shaftesbury on both lettings.  Goodge Street’s eating and drinking scene continues to flourish with the letting of a new restaurant unit underway, in a vibrant neighbourhood that has also recently welcomed MJMK and Nuno Mendes’ Lisboeta, Carousel and Where The Pancakes Are.
