Ottolenghi draws on a wealth of culinary traditions – with a focus on Mediterranean and lots of Vegetarian choices. On entering it seems like a deli, with lots of desserts sitting in the window & large platters of salads on the counter.
The menu is full of cold and hot tapas style dishes for sharing, all inventive yet simple food with lots of big favours and combinations for dinner with ingredients complimenting each other. The dishes combine surprising ingredients which sound odd but really work well together. The dishes are sort of tapas-style and perfect for sharing, which I find makes for a great meal. the more people you go with the better, because the more things you can try.
