Sticks ‘n’ Sushi chooses Greenwich for its third UK restaurant

July 16, 2014

Popular Danish owned, Japanese restaurant group Sticks ‘n’ Sushi is to launch its third UK site in Greenwich in early 2015. The new 90-seater restaurant will be located on the corner of Nelson Road and King William Walk, opposite the University and close to the Maritime Museum and Greenwich Park.  It follows the successful launch of its Wimbledon site in 2012 and a Covent Garden branch in 2013. The restaurants offer a unique cuisine, inspired by the owners’ half-Japanese, half-Danish background, that combines two culinary traditions – sushi and yakitori from the charcoal grills. The group has proved a dynamic and innovative force in Copenhagen, where it has 10 restaurants, and is proving to be just as popular and highly regarded in London.

DCL acted on behalf of landlord Greenwich Hospital, the long term freeholder of Greenwich town centre with substantial holdings, which is committed to upgrading and enhancing existing accommodation, attracting new restaurateurs and specialist retailers. It is soon to commence a significant refurbishment of Greenwich Market, including the installation of a new glass roof, and the creation of a new public courtyard and events pavilion and new retail space. New tenants include British bakery Peyton & Byrne and Borough Market’s Turnips, following the launch of Jamie’s Italian on Nelson Road in 2013, with another new restaurant letting to be announced shortly.

Kate Taylor, Associate Director at Davis Coffer Lyons said: “Greenwich is an incredibly popular destination for leisure visitors but there’s also an affluent local audience that to date has been underserved in terms of great quality, interesting eating and drinking offers.  Sticks ‘n’ Sushi is a fantastic operation that we’ve no doubt will be embraced by the local and visitor audience alike, and this is a significant letting in terms of transforming the town centre’s restaurant landscape.”
