Sticks ‘n’ Sushi to Open Second Site in London

February 14, 2013

After a year of success and critical acclaim, Danish-Owned Japanese Restaurant Sticks’n’Sushi will open a second restaurant in London’s Covent Garden by Autumn 2013.

Their first West-End location will offer the same high-quality sushi as their Wimbledon restaurant, with a wide range of freshly made-to-order sushi including Sashimi, Carpaccio, Nigiri, Kaburimaki (topped rolls).

In addition to sushi, Sticks’n’Sushi will also offer Yakitori sticks from the charcoal grill comprise of Scallop Teriyaki, Jumbo Shrimp with Yuzu dressing, Bacon Wrapped Asparagus, Goat’s Cheese in Bayonne Ham, Lamb Chop, Beef with Herb Butter, Mixed Vegetables and traditional Chicken Tsukune Teriyaki skewer. For those who would like to make it easy on ordering, there is a range of set menus carefully created by Sensei’s.

The new restaurant, in line with the Wimbledon site, will have a strong Danish design ethic and will include a cocktail bar and an open kitchen with surround seating.

Co-Founder Kim Rahbek says “We came to Wimbledon as an unknown with big dreams and were made very welcome by the locals. We have nerves, but are courageous in our team and what we do, so can only hope to enjoy the same excitement for our new central location”.

Bev Churchill, Director of Covent Garden says “We’re really pleased to welcome Sticks’n’Sushi to the neighborhood. Covent Garden is the gastronomic hub in the West End and we are confident Sticks’n’Sushi will be a hugely popular draw.”

Sticks’n’Sushi is one of the most successful Japanese restaurant groups with 10 restaurants in Denmark and was founded 18 years ago by brothers Jens and Kim Rahbek and Thor Andersen, taking inspiration from their half-Japanese, half-Danish background, they created a unique cuisine that combines two culinary traditions – Sushi and Yakitori from the charcoal grill. This made Sticks’n’Sushi a dynamic and innovative force on the Danish restaurant scene and they are considered one of the most respected brands in Denmark with guests ranging from trend-setters to families.

Davis Coffer Lyons advised Covent Garden London on the deal.
