Dinings in Marylebone has long lured London’s savviest sushi lovers. Now the restaurant is launching a second branch, Dinings SW3, on a cobbled mews off Walton Street in Knightsbridge.

Opening on Monday May 22 and taking reservations from Tuesday May 9, this new outpost will offer Dinings’ signature Izakaya-style cooking and add a European twist to classic Japanese cuisine, as in the plateau de fruits de mer featuring sashimi, sushi and other raw seafood. There will also be a Josper grill that will be used to prepare dishes such as sweet soy-marinated Chilean seabass with Sansyo pepper, and Dover sole with wasabi salsa – both made with Cornish fish (like all Dinings dishes).

Two specially made sakes will come courtesy of Konotomo, a family-run independent brewery from Japan, while the full sake list will change with the seasons – full-bodied and crisp in the autumn and winter; more delicate in spring and summer. Dinings SW3 will also have a tea library, created by Lalani & Co and Takezoe-san, and a food-and-tea-pairing menu.

With interiors designed by David d’Almada’s Sagrada studio, the light-filled space is more plush than the pared-down original Dinings and includes a 10-cover sushi counter inside, as well as a private space for seating 24 diners and a 20-cover courtyard.
