If you are a Londoner inquisitive about food then there is a chance you will already be familiar with Ottolenghi.
You may have visited one of the prestige food outlets and experienced some of the incredible flavours inspired by the Mediterranean, Middle East, Asia and Yotam Ottolenghi’s native Israel.
Until last year this may have been in the form of a lunch box from one of Ottolenghi’s deli’s or possibly you tried your hand at one of his recipes from his regular feature in the Guardian.
NOPI is Ottolenghi’s first restaurant and is a great concept that should be tried by anyone who likes Ottolenghi food but who also enjoys an exquisite dinning experience.
This tasty interesting food is best enjoyed shared and with plates such as Fried courgette flowers stuffed with ricotta, schneeflockli, date molasses or Roast Aubergine, blk garlic, harissa, pine nuts to start. Follow this with the delicious Mackerel, spinach vichyssoise, green apple wasabi fish roe or the incredible confit pressed duck, burnt miso butternut scotch, pickled mixed mushrooms.
Both the food and the restaurant are beautiful with a relaxed atmosphere accompanying minimalist but grown-up décor.
For those of us who need a little glamour in a minimalist world a visit to the loo is highly recommended. Here you will be whisked into a room of mirrors all projecting your reflection like a giant gemstone, what better way to finish a perfect evening!
