Square Meal Review of Honey & Co ?

The Israeli husband-and-wife team behind this cute Middle Eastern café used to cook at Ottolenghi and Nopi respectively – so you know what to expect from their pint-sized kitchen. With around 20 covers and a couple of tables on the pavement, it’s a tight squeeze, but worth any discomfort for a taste of their vibrant food. Flavours from Algeria, Morocco, Iraq and the Yemen collide on a daily menu that offers all kinds of mezze morsels ranging from spicy falafels with thick tahini to marinated beetroot with sprigs of oregano or watermelon salad with feta and green chillis. For a bigger fill-up, try roast baby chicken with ras el hanout and barberries or merguez sausages with shakshuka (eggs baked in tomato and pepper sauce). A mouth-watering window display of sticky pastries and cakes is an added temptation for diners and passers-by alike.

    The List :: Honey & Co

    Honey & Co has been on my list for a very long time, so I was delighted when my Mum picked it out of a bunch of suggestions for a birthday meal. Me and the parentals popped along on a Thursday lunch time to see if it deserved its Michelin Bib Gourmand (for "offering good food at reasonable prices"). Booking is essential! We had a table for 12pm so I expected it to fill up slowly, but clearly the secret is out. Tables are packed pretty close together, so you may end up chatting to your neighbours about how delicious everything is. N.B. Honey & Co. is closed on Sundays. We all went for the bargain lunch set menu (£15.50 for Mezze and a main) and a refreshing glass of home-made mint lemonade. Orange-blossom iced tea & Camden Hells Lager were tempting but we made the right choice...

    Samphire and Salsify :: Honey and Co.

    Honey and Co. is a restaurant near Great Portland Street which specialises in food from the Middle East. Husband and wife team, who are both based in the kitchen, run the place and as it’s proving to be rather popular, I was looking forward to our Saturday lunch. As we walked down a quiet, sleepy street we nearly walked past the place...

  3. I booked a table for 11am because I'd heard of Honey & Co's immense popularity, but on a cold Monday the small room was only half full. Our waitress gave us the pick of the tables, but when we sat down she told us we could have the table until 12.30pm because it was booked for lunch. I was a little taken aback at the 90 minute slot, mainly because we had made a booking (and even the most regimented of spots let you have it for two hours), but also, come on it's just a cafe! Eating against the clock isn't something I enjoy. The short menu had a number of dishes that weren't familiar to me, but most of what was available was on display in the window...

    Agent Restauranteur :: Honey & Co – London W1T

    last month I jumped at the chance to gate-crash my friends’ double date and join them at the now impossible to book Honey & Co. The restaurant is tiny. A coffee shop counter dominates the back wall, overlooking a handful of tables and shelves of preserves, seasonings and relishes. It looks like someone who loves cooking thought it might be nice to shove a few tables out front, jar up a few sauces and see what happens. The result is an utter success...

    Saying it straight :: Honey & Co.

    You’d walk past it if you didn’t know. And you wouldn’t know unless you’d read Marina O’Loughlin’s lovely review of this (or at least I wouldn’t). And given her review, I really had to try it. It’s run by a couple of ex-Ottolenghi employees and you can see certain similarities. There’s an attention to detail that’s unusual and a skill with presentation that marks this above the ordinary. I’d say it was Middle-Eastern food, but with a twist. And the twist is that this is actually Israeli food. And therein lies the difference. Israeli food is partly Middle Eastern, to a point, but it’s also Eastern European, and Moroccan, and Syrian and Iraqi and Yemeni and all the other places that Jews originally came from before they settled in Israel...
