Situated at the top of Rosslyn Hill in Hampstead, London, the Delicatessen treats food lovers to a perfect marriage of fine dining, casual vibes and overall amazing service, with a charismatic manager and friendly staff.
Having only been open for 6 months, the thick wooden tables constantly filled with buzzy customers make it easy to see why the Delicatessen is one of the most exciting new restaurants in London this year. While the warmth and charm of the staff who immediately make you feel at ease should be enough to reel you in, the delicious modern Middle Eastern soul food served up by the kitchen will definitely keep you in your seat.
With appetising starters, meals designed to be shared in traditional Middle-Eastern fashion, tasty mains, mouth-watering desserts and relaxing teas to wrap up your meal – when it comes to food, this restaurants definitely holds it’s own. Although the colourful menu leaves you spoilt for choice, the Lambshuka, which is a sharing plate of lamb, herbs, preserved lemon mixed tahini & nuts is a stand-out choice to begin your Delicatessen experience.
For the mains, you have your choice of scrumptious options for one, or to be enjoyed in mezzo-style sharing plate. Delectable options like a Bone marrow & ribeye burger with mustard mayo pulled chips, seared fresh tuna salad or mixed grill for two with chicken thighs, kebab, Lamb chops, merguez and rib eye steak are a testament to the Delicatessen’s varied and flavoursome menu. Looking to have the full Middle Eastern sharing experience, we opted for the Mixed Grill paired with a bottle of Giuliano Chianti from the Delicatessen’s expansive selection of wines.
To round off the meal, the Delicatessen’s dessert menu is short and sweet. We opted for the Malabi with passion fruit, rose petals, coconut & nut brittle, and the Basbousa cake with tahini semifreddo, mint jelly and raspberry & lemon coulis. Both were highly recommended and definitely lived up to expectations.
The Delicatessen is nothing short of impressive, the menu is colourful, the food is delicious, the service is great and the staff are charming. If you’re looking for a new restaurant to try whether you’re alone, one a date or out with a group of friends or family, the Delicatessen is a new destination worthy of your attention.
