After we were seated on the mezzanine our waiter went through the menu which also included plates inspired by the food of the Eastern Mediterranean coastline, such as spiced potato brik with soft egg yolk, brown shrimp and harissa mayo; herb and Nabulsi sheep’s cheese manti; and braised cuttlefish with orzo and Moroccan red pepper sauce. The kitchen is led by Head Chef Oren Goldfeld who has previously worked at Nopi and Tel Aviv’s acclaimed Toto restaurant.
Two of my favourites were the Barrel-aged feta Saganaki with cherry tomato jam and the pan-fried Welsh lamb sweetbreads with Jerusalem mixed spice, a punchy blend of cardamom, cumin, turmeric, allspice and paprika, served with almond sauce and pickles. With Greek wine currently undergoing a renaissance in London, it was also exciting to enjoy some wines I’d never tried before, which were expertly paired by the sommelier.
The evening was very relaxed, the food was incredibly tasty and the wine rather enjoyable. Being someone who loves a sharing menu, this is somewhere I’ll definitely be returning.
