Ottolenghi, the man behind the Middle Eastern movement in the UK, opened his 6th London restaurant earlier this year in the burgeoning gastronomic hotspot, Fitzrovia aptly named Rovi. The 2nd restaurant that’s not been named after Yotam himself is run by Neil Campbell who was previously the head chef at Bruno Loubet’s former Kings Cross restaurant: The Grain Store Kitchen, along with Calvin Von Niebel, Ottolenghi’s group development chef.
Rovi is the 11th gift in our 12 Days of Christmas series and our December Restaurant of the Month… which means you’ll only have ONE day to enter!
All you have to do to win a £150 meal-for-two voucher is like and follow the latest Rovi post on either Instagram, Twitter or Facebook. The open-plan theatre kitchen is a lively act of chefs cooking over a flame grill and it could be the perfect food-lovers gift this Christmas.
Ottolenghi’s main focus at Rovi was to create straight-forward and uncomplicated food. The menu is centred around fermentation, local vegetables from East London’s cooperative and flavours from the Levant and Asia. The meat and fish dishes are also equally delicious and lesser cuts are cooked in a simplistic but considered fashion … a must have is the Onglet skewers with mayo, fermented green chilli and peanuts.
We’ve been supplying the Ottolenghi group for more than six years with a range of products including our signature Rose Harissa paste that recently featured in Yotam’s latest book, SIMPLE.
