Bone Daddies has confirmed it will open its next ramen bar this October close to London’s Leicester Square.

The new restaurant is located directly opposite Leicester Square tube station on Cranbourn Street and will hold 80 covers across two floors.

“Our tremendous Bone Daddies team are preparing to move in to our new home, as we continue to strengthen the Bone Daddies brand from our exciting new location in Leicester Square,” says Steve Hill, Bone Daddies managing director.

“The new site is directly opposite the tube in a prime spot for Londoners and tourists alike.”

Bone Daddies, which originally launched back in 2012 and last year celebrated its 10 year anniversary, currently operates seven sites under its core brand in London, as well as two Flesh & Buns restaurants.

It also owns Shackfuyu in Soho, which is inspired by the Western-influenced Japanese yōshoku cooking style.

Group head chef Tom Moxon will oversee the Leicester Square menu, which will include the brand’s original tonkotsu ramen featuring chashu pork belly, spring onion, bamboo, beansprouts, burnt garlic and a Clarence Court egg.

The restaurant’s interior will have ‘a more industrial feel’ than Bone Daddies’ other ramen bars and include concrete and metal scaffold features throughout, juxtaposed against red and white Japanese lanterns, a beer crate wall and lightbox elements.

Bone Daddies first revealed back in July​ that it was planning to open a site in Leicester Square, and added at the time that it is actively seeking out new sites for its 2024 pipeline.

The group reported £17.3m in revenue for the year ended 30 September 2022, up 57.5% on the £11m reported in FY21.

“I’m super proud to see the Bone Daddies Group driving positive results and enjoying continued growth,” Hill adds.

“Despite difficulties for the industry as a whole over the last few years, our team has stayed with us - some for almost a decade – which is pretty humbling, so we feel very positive about our future in hospitality, both in London and perhaps beyond.”
