Ottolenghi Restaurant Review

: Based on a philosophy of using the best, freshest ingredients in a creative, innovative way, Yotam Ottolenghi has taken healthy eating to new, fashionable heights. There are three Ottolenghi delis in London, but the Islington branch is the biggest with 50 seats and a kitchen producing dishes made from scratch throughout the day. With an emphasis on the Mediterranean, you can choose from salads like chickpea, butternut squash and chard in a minty yoghurt dressing; shallot, potato and goat’s cheese tatin; and deep-fried courgette flowers stuffed with ricotta. Desserts are equally good and all is served in a smart setting with much panache and confidence. Other locations.
