My wife loves Ottolenghi's recipes so we took advantage of being in London to visit his main operation in Islington. We were not disappointed. The atmosphere was buzzing as we took our seats at the communal tables and had the process explained to us. We ordered 9 dishes between 3 of us (as advised) and the amount was perfect. They are all mid sized sharing plates with the emphasis on vegetarian food. All were very good, our favourite was the aubergine and the Halloumi. The breads and dips were excellent and service was good. The drinks list was varied and not too expensive.
If you like this type of food and informal dining this is an excellent place to visit, but you need to book; since his rise to fame it has become very popular.
It wasn't cheap, but you are paying for the experience and name as well. Overall enjoyable and worthwhile and will probably go again when in London.
