A new Japanese restaurant has opened in Cheltenham.
YOKU opened on Friday at the No.131 hotel on the Promenade. The hotel is run by The Lucky Onion, owned by Superdry founder Julian Dunkerton and his fashion designer wife Jade Holland Cooper.
The ‘Tokyo-vogue’ restaurant has been inspired by Jade’s travels. It is said to embrace the Shun and Omakase traditions, to deliver seasonal ingredients combined with the art of collaboration from the chef to diner through personal interactions.
Culinary director Ronnie Bonetti and chef Jesse Chung will serve a range of Japanese sushi and Asian cuisine alongside Sake, Japanese wine, and cocktails.
Ronnie has previously worked at Rockpool by Neil Perry, COMO Hotels, River Café, Soho House and Babington House.
He has cooked for the likes of Adele, Bruce Willis, Matt Damon and Britney Spears along the way.
