Ottolenghi

Eats

  • Lyle's - a beautiful and airy restaurant, serving up great gastronomic British fare. Whatever you do, make sure you get the house made sourdough bread with their own raw milk butter. 
  • Gunpower - When you want Indian food that goes a step beyond the standard dishes. Definitely order the turmeric fish steamed in a banana leaf and the venison doughnut.
  • Ottolenghi - Go to any of his locations for delicious baked goods and fresh Middle Eastern prepared foods.
  • Katsute 100 Japanese Boutique - a quaint and authentic Japanese tea shop serving great matcha and mochi.
  • Sketch - come here for the delightfully all-pink dining room (make sure you make a reservation in the pink room) and check out the bathroom situation.
  • Babaji Pide - From the owner of Hakkasan, this place serves up fresh and authentic Turkish food. 
  • Tamarind - Not the same owners as the one in NY. Classic Indian cuisine in an upscale setting. Try the Indian red wines!
