NOPI, Warwick Street. An amazing restaurant from Yotam Ottolenghi. Serving up an array of incredible dishes to share with Mediterranean, Asian and Middle Eastern influences. Upstairs is a more formal dining space, whereas downstairs there is a much more communal feel as you eat alongside the almost-silent kitchen (I don’t know how they did it, even at full capacity there wasn’t even a raised voice, I was expecting knife throwing and flames like some sort of tasteless BGT performance) and fresh produce. The cocktails look as good as they taste, and the service is faultless. A visit to NOPI isn’t complete with out a visit to the bathroom, a mesmerising mirror maze that requires an arrow on the floor to point you out, you’d be braver than me to go it alone!
Recommendations: scallops, baby octopus.
