OttolenghiThis southern Mediterranean restaurant and deli has become a cast-iron favourite with Islington's socialites, who love the all-white decor, the sharing tables and the exotic cuisine, that mixes a dash of Italy and a spot of North Africa with a selection of Greek, Turkish and Middle Eastern dishes. Takeaway options include salads, dips and superb patisserie, while if you eat in, you can expect a subtly flavoured and healthy meal. Its sheer popularity means that the waiters can be a little overwhelmed, but they're never less than charming. Renowned for its excellent breakfasts - voted "the finest in town" by The Observer Food Monthly.
