• Islington renovation

    After seven years of hectic operation, we are about to give the Islington restaurant a serious and well-needed facelift. For this we will need to close the restaurant for nine days – from Tuesday, 30th of August, to Wednesday, 7th of September. We will re-open, all white and gleaming, on...

    11/8: Our men (and woman) and work.
  • Nopi, Jul 30th, 2011

    30/7: Scully’s special is getting everybody ecstatic and Basia finds it hard to share. Ceps on sourdough with bone marrow and veal jus. What is this, St John’s?
  • Nopi, Jul 21st, 2011

    20/7: kitchen and floor on break - Petros, Sylvia, Scully, Kinga and Ludwig. Well deserved breath of fresh air, bar the cigarette smoke.
  • West coast, part III

    Now it’s LA and what a change from modest San Francisco! It’s sunny, it’s flat and it’s massive. Joans on Third is the first stop and Joan gives me a reception of a lifetime, with enough food, actually, to last at least a lifetime or two. And if that isn’t...
  • West coast, part II

    4/7: In the making: cured trout with wasabi fish roe and some delish seasonal veg. Excuse the pink cloth.
  • Mike in Piemonte

    Mike Britten, manager and most familiar face of Ottolenghi, Belgravia, is back from Italy with a very visual travel log: Another year, another trip to my wonderful friends Neil and Richie and their home in the hills of the Piemonte region of Italy, an area abundant in naturally grown produce...
