All the food at Ottolenghi is made in their kitchens, right below the shops. The Ottolenghi philosophy requires that everything is hand crafted with extreme care and attention, from basic raw ingredients. The croissants, for example, are made in the traditional French way over three days, using French flour and butter. The vegetables are delivered early in the morning from the market to be freshly prepared for the day. This branch has a dining area where you can enjoy their fantastic food.

This was easily my best meal in London. All our dishes were executed excellently and each showed a flair for creativity without going too off the rails conceptually. Perhaps my favorite were the lamb chops and roasted aubergines. Each both managed to add elements which differentiated, while bringing out, not just the natural flavor of the dish, but more interestingly the texture of the dish.more
Ottolenghi is all the hype these days for making vegetables sexy. The menu is creative and a welcomed breath of fresh air especially since Brits arguably don't eat enough produce in their traditional diets.
I came here for a group dinner and loved that it was family style as I was able to sample just about every dish on the menu. My favorites of the night included the petite lamb chops,...more
