Modern Middle Eastern Cuisine

When Israeli-born chef Yotam Ottolenghi rocketed to stardom in the early aughts, he brought with him a renewed attention to the rich and varied flavors of the Middle East cooking, ushering in a new culinary zeitgeist by way of best-selling cookbooks and London-based delis. At Nopi, the team serves up many of Ottolenghi signature dishes in a bi-level space—a formal dining room on the ground floor (white-washed brick walls, light marble accents, brass detailing) and a casual, more communal option below it; but, chef Ramael Scully offers a few noteworthy creations of his own, including coriander seed-crusted burrata with peach and twice-cooked baby chicken with lemon myrtle salt and chili jam.
