Squaremeal Review of Ottolenghi Islington ?

Armed with one of Yotam Ottolenghi’s cookbooks & a daunting shopping list of esoteric ingredients, you could try your hand at any of the dishes on offer in his highly desirable cafés. But why would you, when it would mean missing out on the visuals? The chic, all-white interiors & counters loaded with salads, savouries, cakes & oversized meringues – heck, even the queues – are as much a part of the experience as the food. Not that the zingy, eclectic flavours ever disappoint. Ottolenghi’s distinctive cuisine sans frontières makes for a melting-pot menu that might feature Indian roasted aubergine with turmeric yoghurt, Middle Eastern lamb kofta with manouri, pistachio & saffron yoghurt, or a Franco-Italian wild mushroom quiche with pecorino. Brunch & dinner menus are available at Islington only.

    The Swindian :: Ottolenghi - fresh and fabulous flavours

    Yotam Ottolenghi has become a household name, at least in Britain, with cookbooks and restaurants galore, all featuring a multitude of fresh flavours. I first stumbled across his beautiful food on Instagram, before eating at the Spittalfields branch last year. Recently, a friend of mine cooked me his chickpea dish, and a few weeks ago, I spent a large part of my Sunday in the Islington branch. And I simply can’t get enough! My recent trip to Israel awakened a new culinary part of my brain, and Yotam is satisfying it to a very high degree…
    The flavours are incredibly fresh, and the prices surprisingly reasonable....

Yotam Ottolenghi

The darling of the chattering classes, Israeli chef (and qualified pilates instructor) Yotam Ottolenghi is best known for his veggie-biased Guardian column and his hugely popular Middle Eastern cookbooks. He came to London in 1997 to do a PhD, but was distracted by a Cordon Bleu cookery course that eventually led to Kensington Place, Baker & Spice and his own restaurant/deli group, Ottolenghi. His higher end offering, Nopi, followed in 2011.
