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.

Ottolenghi were very helpful in booking us bar spaces, as the table we had booked was for 9.00 rather that 7.00 and they were already fully booked for that evening! Once settled at the bar with a fortifying drink we had a surprisingly tasty meal. Ingredients were familiar but served with a spicy twist. Even thought we were served tapas style portions we still managed to overeat - a lesson for a future visit. This was definitely high-end dining and the prices reflected this, but was finally worth it .

Great food, great atmosphere and a very interesting menu which allowed you to experience lots of different flavors in one meal. I definitely want to go back!
