Summary

This light and bright July 2018 opening from Yotam Ottolenghi is, er, Ottolenghi-like in its culinary character: that is to say, firmly rooted in eastern Mediterranean cuisine; but here with a spin that’s even more veg-centred, and also now with a focus on fermentation and cooking over fire. The eco-friendly, waste-reducing, Fitzrovia site is initially open for lunch and dinner, but breakfast will follow.

"As you would expect from Ottolenghi, the flavours are good and the emphasis in on vegetables. Small plates are the thing, and the shorish menu slightly undersells some of the dishes, but do not think that makes the food light - highlights included confit mushrooms with soft polenta; creamy burrata comes with with lightly pickled rhubarb and a delicious pastries lemon slice. Did not have room for dessert, sadly."

"Veg-heavy menu with really interesting flavours, less “Ottolenghi” than some of his other places. Cauliflower mushroom, squid skewer were stand outs. Katie’s non-alcoholic G&T was really excellent, a terrific grown up soft drink. Lovely room, very nice furnishings, nice toilets, but the banquette seating is too low for the tables — unacceptable for a restaurant with Rovi’s ambition and budget. Attentive and knowledgeable staff, good pacing to the meal. £145 for 3 incl coffee and service. Food: - Sharing plates avg £33 each incl 1 dessert + 1 portion of caramels Drink: - Lager/Pale Ale £6 - Glass of Gavi £8.50 - non-alc cocktail (excellent) £5.50 - espresso £2"

"Ottolenghi on form - innovative interesting and always tasty; emphasis is on vegetables but not exclusively; great space; definitely to one to return to."

"Lovely food (and cocktails!). Staff were fine, but it's just so busy and tables are cramped. Nowhere to wait if a bit early (or the table is vacated late)."
