Squaremeal Review of Wormwood ?

Wormwood closed on 09/16

It's still young, but this "unassuming" yet highly original restaurant is already a destination for itinerant foodies and locals who can't believe their luck. Algerian chef Rabah Ourrad honed his skills with Pierre Gagnaire and Brett Graham, but Wormwood is entirely his own creation. The menu lists around 15 small, eclectic dishes that will rock you with their creative flair and pure deliciousness – how about lobster couscous with Manzanilla-soaked prunes, roast almonds, confit lemon and a citrusy bisque, rabbit croquetas with confit lime mayo and carrot reduction or pickled and puréed cauliflower with beetroot sauce, coconut and truffle? A fan raves that "the flavour and subtle mix of ingredients works a magic" – so take your time, properly savour each mouthful and enjoy the confident, laid-back service. The weekend lunch menu is a decent introduction, but nothing really beats the thrill of the "complete package" at night.

    Bigged up by my foodie client, A, I was expecting Wormwood to be a little gem, a neighbourhood joy, a find. The website promised much too, with the chef all Marco Pierre White, in...

    It’s not often you’ll find a head chef who can belt out a decent rap, but Rabah Ourrad can do just that – because this Algerian born chef was previously lead singer of a rap band. He subsequently went on to pursue his passion for cooking, working at Sketch, The Ledbury & Momo in London before venturing out on his own & starting Wormwood with his foodie brother Akli.

    The restaurant is named after the Wormwood plant, and occupies a space on All Saints Road in Notting Hill...
