Nopi is the name of the latest project behind Ottolenghi’s team. Nopi was designed by Architect Alex Meitlis and was recently winner of the Gourmet Award by “Condé Nast Traveller“ in its annual competition Innovations & Design Awards.
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.
