Had late lunch at Ottolenghi on Upper Street in Islington.
Ottolenghi is famous for its cakes, and also for its salads spiced with oriental flavors.
My choice was
Char-grilled salmon with za'atar yoghurt,
char-grilled broccoli with chili & garlic,
mixed green beans with fennel, crispy kale, fennel seeds, anise seeds, dill & pink peppercorns.
The whole day was a bit rainy and windy. It all made me wanted to stay inside, but got tickets to a jazz concert at Royal Academy of Music, so the tube to Baker Street.
The concert was marvelous! It was dedicated to Billy May and conducted by Mike Lovatt. The musicians were the students of Royal Academy - they played absolutely gorgeously. The jazz version of Brahms' Hungarian Dance no.5 was phenomenal!
What a great evening!
