Yotam Ottolenghi to launch London brasserie

17 December 2010 by

Chef, author and delicatessen owner Yotam Ottolenghi is to launch a new venture next year, with the opening of a restaurant in London.

Nopi will be a high-end brasserie serving a modern menu inspired by the flavours of the Mediterranean, Middle East and Asia. It will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner and offer both individual and sharing plates.

Located on Warwick Street in Soho, Nopi will be housed in the site formerly occupied by Club Bar & Dining. Spread over two floors, it will feature the kitchen in the lower floor, with high sharing tables alongside it.

Israeli-born Ottolenghi moved to London in 1998 and trained at Cordon Bleu before working as a pastry chef at the Capital restaurant in Knightsbridge and Kensington Place. He then moved to the Baker and Spice shop in Chelsea, where he became head pasty chef.

In 2002, he teamed with Noam Bar, Sami Tamimi and Jim Webb to set up Ottolenghi, which now has shops in Notting Hill, Kensington, Islington and Belgravia.

Ottolenghi also writes a weekly column in The Guardian called the New Vegetarian and has published two cookery books, The Ottolenghi Cookbook and Plenty.
