Harden's says

Israeli chef-restaurateur Eyal Shani has followed up pitta specialist Miznon, in Soho and Notting Hill, with a very different concept off the Old Street roundabout on the edge of the City, serving sharing plates from a menu divided by ingredients rather than courses. Opened in May 2023, Lilienblum is named after a street in Tel Aviv.

Our reviews are based on an annual survey of ordinary diners which runs in Spring each year. But this establishment has not yet gathered enough feedback for our editors to write it up.

For 32 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
