He’s spent time at Louie Louie and running his own residency at Borough wines in Kensal Rise and now Israeli chef Oded Oren is opening his first restaurant in Dalston this autumn. Oren will take the place of Floyd’s on Shacklewell Lane and will serve food inspired by Oren’s home and the rest of the Mediterranean at lunch and dinner, with a “unique” brunch also on the cards.

There’s no firm menu details yet but we’re not expecting the dishes to be a million miles away from what he cooked up at Borough Wines; there dishes included lamb sweetbreads with za’atar, baharat roasted quail, Cornish mackerel pitas and cardamom ice cream with burnt figs. Again we’re got no specifics on the wine list, only that Zeren Wilson is taking charge, so it’s in good hands.

Out and about in Dalston? Here’s where you should go.

Opens October 2019
