Angelina promises to “present an experience like no other” and “a multi-cultural mash-up.”

Located on Dalston Lane in Hackney, the forty-cover restaurant designed by London-based Anna Owens Designs is influenced by Japanese avant-garde fashion.  An Italian marble bar will look onto an open kitchen offering guests a chance to see the chefs at work.

The menu will feature cavolo nero, tonkotsu, egg and keta caviar, unagi risotto with burnt soy butter and dashi, and black sesame and milk chocolate panna cotta.

An eight-plate sharing menu starts from £38 with an optional wine pairing for an additional £35.  A daily plate will also be available for £9 or £12 when paired with a beer or glass of wine

The drinks menu promises to include both Japanese and Italian cocktails and wine.

Guests will have the opportunity to sample these in the Golden Gai, a “hidden drinking den” inspired by Tokyo’s Shinjuku district, with seating for just six people.

Angelina will open on 20 February.
