The East London space serves sharing-style dishes inspired by the flavours of Israel, and focuses on family-style sharing plates cooked in an open kitchen. The open kitchen is led by chef Oren King (who’s previously worked at Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, Roka and Hide), and diners sitting counter-side get to watch all the action. And, aside from the main dining room, there’s an urban terrace for al fresco dinner and drinks.
