Concierge.com's insider take:
Israeli chef Yotam Ottolenghi has a knack for making vegetables sexy—he might pair roasted red and yellow beets with quince, basil, and macadamia nuts, or drizzle truffle oil over char-grilled zucchini with pistachio, pecorino, and basil. There are also fish and meat dishes with bold flavors, such as seared scallops with tempura anchovies, chickpeas, potato chowder, and herbs, or roasted pork filet with butter bean purée and quince tart. Of course, Ottolenghi's sophisticated desserts and cakes (rum and chocolate fondant cake or blackberry financier with mascarpone) on appetizing display in the window are reason enough to slide into a Panton chair at the dining room's candelabra-lit communal table. Smaller tables are available as well, if you're not feeling sociable.—Giovanna Dunmall
