Rovi, Fitzrovia - TXG

The latest and to our mind the best of the Ottolenghi restaurants.  Whilst Nopi is great food the room itself isn’t quite right, whereas Rovi is a bright light open space with a central horseshoe bar where you can sit at the counter.  We had the lobster crumpet, which was worth the trip alone, and a selection of the small plates.  Interesting, fresh, delicious, and, as ever, it left us frankly baffled as to how this kitchen can make a raw courgette taste quite so good.  Good wine list too with some unusual choices, including a Palestinian red which is worth a try, by the glass, carafe, and bottle, which we like.
