Review on Inko Nito
In May 2018 Rainer Becker the co-founder of Zuma, Roka and Oblix added to his portfolio of restaurants with the opening of Inko Nito in the heart of Soho. A casual Japanese restaurant which focuses on the robatayaki, it follows the successful launch of a sibling venue in downtown LA at the end of 2017. A sleekly designed room with minimalist interiors created by LA based Studio Mai, it has an industrial vibe with distressed concrete pillars and original brickwork. Counter seating is cleverly designed at different heights enabling diners a view of the robata grill which takes centre stage.
The menu is designed by Group Executive Chef Hamish Brown and is an unconventional take on the robata with dishes such as beef cheek, spicy Korean miso, pickled daikon and butter lettuce or pork belly, chilli and Japanese whisky glaze. For fish fans there's scallops, shiso, sweet soy, shichimi yogurt and lemon, while vegetarians could opt for the cauliflower, garlic soy aioli, parmesan panko. There's just one dessert to close the show with charred coconut soft serve, soy, pocky and Japanese granola.
The concise wine list has been carefully chosen to complement the dishes, and there's also Japanese inspired cocktails and beers and four varieties of sake.
