This Soho based restaurant described as a “brasserie with a twist” is split between two levels.

The design is more formal on the ground floor. The main dining area is designed with brass, oak, gold-veined Greek marble elements and has beautiful replicas of antique lamps from old Jaffa hanging from the ceiling.

While downstairs there is a more informal feel with its long communal tables looking into the open kitchen.

Ottolenghi’s food philosophy is based on quality, innovation and freshness. Nopi is a total new creation, not a traditional brasserie but a modern one where plates are designed to be shared and are based on Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and Asian influences.
