Ottolenghi Spitalfields can be found tucked down a narrow Georgian passageway. But despite appearances, it is our largest Ottolenghi location, full of bustle and atmosphere; comprising of a dining room, cocktail bar, and deli for take away.
Guests can dine in for breakfast, lunch or dinner in the main restaurant or at the bar, to take in the cocktail-making action.
No visit is complete without a stop by our shop, for Ottolenghi products, cookbooks and gifts, as well as the all important pastry display, for something sweet to eat in or take home. For our catering service, please contact Natalia who will be delighted to help you, whatever the occasion: lunch for your work meeting, canapés and nibbles for your cocktail party or supper to take home
Meet our team - Ruta Baguckaite
Ruta is our fabulous shop manager at Ottolenghi Spitalfields. She started out working with us at Ottolenghi Notting Hill over 9 years ago, so it's fair to say she knows Ottolenghi inside out!
She loves the bustling energy in London but when she needs to switch off and regenerate, there's no place quite like home - in her case, a small town called Mazeikiai in Lithuania. Ruta grew up surrounded by lakes and forests, which was ideal as a small child. As a teenager who needed a little more action, she joined a circus school where she trained intensively under a retired professional performer from Moscow. Ruta turned out to be so talented that she was invited to pursue it as a career!
But as fate would have it, she turned it down and studied linguistics and psychology, eventually ending up in London and at Ottolenghi, where she fell in love with good food and wine.
