Nopi, Yotam Ottolenghi’s upscale restaurant, is Perfect For any time you need to impress someone but also not look like you’re trying too hard. It’s the restaurant equivalent of, ‘oh, this old thing?’. The Middle Eastern/Mediterranean sharing plates lean towards being mostly vegetarian but are uniformly excellent, and are where the best action is. Get the courgette fritters or burrata with blood orange. Nopi’s an excellent spot for brunch in central, especially when you can’t face the queue for the Breakfast Club.
