A tempting array of platters stacked to vertiginous heights with fresh, seasonal salads greets guests at this on-trend, marble and brass-clad restaurant. With Middle Eastern master Yotam Ottolenghi’s bold flavours on show, expect good things. The buzzy upstairs dining room is a superb lunch spot. Order mackerel, grains of paradise, labneh and fermented gooseberries and sides of courgette and manouri fritters with a cardamom yoghurt or roasted aubergine with black garlic and basil. Finish with lashings of almond milk rice pudding with rose and pistachio. BG. 020 7494 9584, http://ottolenghi.co.uk
