Ottolenghi on Holland St, London to close as team plans new site

Ottolenghi on London's Holland Street is to close on 4 August, after the team behind the business decided not to renew the lease.

Instead, Yotam Ottolenghi, Sami Tamimi, Cornelia Staeubli and Noam Bar are looking for a new, larger site, that will incorporate a dining room as well as a deli, in a similar vein to Ottolenghi Islington, with the aim of opening in 2014.

The news comes nearly eight years since Ottolenghi on Holland Street first opened.

All of the staff currently employed at Ottolenghi Kensington will keep their jobs and will work in the other outlets in Notting Hill, Belgravia and Islington.

Yotam Ottolenghi said: "We want to say a big thank you to all of our customers that have become friends over the years in Kensington, but this isn't goodbye and our other sites in Ledbury Road and Motcomb Street aren't far away, so come and visit us! We are also very excited about the prospect of opening another Ottolenghi similar to our Islington site next year".

Aside from the three remaining delis, the group also runs Nopi restaurant in Soho.
