Chotto Matte opened its doors to its first restaurant in September 2013 during London Fashion Week and brings the energy of underground Tokyo to the streets of Soho. Located on the corner of Bateman and Frith, Chotto Matte brings together the best of Japanese and Peruvian cultures serving up affordable Nikkei cuisine, killer cocktails, and live music.
Spread over 3 floors, Chotto Matte is comprised of 6 distinct areas. The ground floor includes an expansive cocktail lounge featuring a curved bar cut from lava stone from which skilled mixologists shake up Nikkei-inspired Pisco, Sochu, and Sake cocktails. When the sun shines, retractable glass walls expose the lounge to the street allowing guests to spill into Soho and take in the sights and sounds of the bustling neighborhood.
Chotto Matte is on the path to further expansion with 2 additional North American flagship restaurants opening in 2017.
