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.

The restaurant itself was tastefully decorated and modern.
The staff were cold, impersonal, and seemed always rushed for the low number of patrons.
The food, although beautiful as ever,... more
Kind of bummed it didn't live up to high high expectations. And they did nothing for my birthday :( (Nopi surprised with a free gelato at lunch time)
It seemed everyone had the ugly but tasty and smoky aubergine, the scallops with fried shallots and the beef shin in pastry with endives and tomato. All good but nothing mind blowing.
The rum and chocolate fondant was incredibly rich and... more
I'm bummed that I hadn't heard about Ottolenghi until now. My friends who were visiting from the US and avid fans of Yotam Ottolenghi insisted on coming here for dinner even though the only table we could reserve for 4 people on a weekend night was at 9:30PM.
