Nopi, Ottolenghi Work In Progress, From Testing Dishes to Marble Floor, See For Yourself

With The Restaurateur Roger Sherman filmed all the the twists and turns and delays leading to the opening of Eleven Madison Park and Tabla restaurants in New York.

In London, Yotam Ottolenghi takes the Tumblr route to document Nopi, his new restaurant in project on Warwick Street in Soho, from testing recipes to laying the marble floor and putting up shelves.


Right now it is still a construction site with someone shown "preparing the shelves that will run along the wall in the basement. On them we will store dry ingredients for the kitchen. So brace yourselves, basement diners, to chefs coming round to grab what they need" (December 21)

I tried to get him to share the recipe for dessert with no name posted on December 20 to no avail.


I would have this Seabass in Tomato Essence for dinner if I could.


Realized I forgot to ask what Nopi planned opening date is.
