When the original Bevis Marks Restaurant moved north from its original site, it left a gap in the market. Thankfully, this new eatery, located in the grounds of the London’s oldest synagogue (built in 1701), is primed to deliver a bold, contemporary take on traditional Jewish cuisine. Gefilte fish appears as wild sea-bass mousseline with beetroot, horseradish, ginger and carrot jelly, bowls of restorative ‘Jewish penicillin’ are billed as ‘chicken consommé with tortellini’, and a modernised version of flanken involves hay-smoked short ribs with celeriac purée and pomegranate. To conclude, how about a modish riff on Middle Eastern tishpishti (orange blossom and semolina cake) embellished with carrot sorbet and black olive ‘soil’? You can also start the day with a kibbutz-style Israeli breakfast or filo-pastry bourekas. The international wine list includes some mevushal (Kosher) bottles.
