Food is central to Judaism, and Zest restaurant in Hampstead looks to bring the traditions and cultures of Jewish tradition alive through its fragrant menu and warm hospitality. With the innovative 15-metre bar built by Cantilever Bars undeniably the focal point, Zest at JW3 boasts a stylish and contemporary dining space with sliding glass doors leading out on to the outdoor piazza.

A kosher menu serves up only meat-free dishes, the Zest restaurant menu blends traditional heritage with a contemporary Tel Aviv vibe to offer a more modern approach to Jewish cooking. Dishes include butterflied sea bream in chilli and bay glaze with harissa coconut sauce, and sweet potato gnocchi with burnt aubergines, crispy shallots and pomegranate.

Mezze dishes include marinated beetroot with buttermilk & dukkah mixed nuts, and fried cauliflower with tahini drizzle and date syrup. In keeping with hospitable traditions, a selection of coffee, teas and juices are served at the bar with an abundance of small plates and cakes. Referencing the colourful cuisine, dishes are served on brightly-coloured pottery specially designed by Israel’s Adama Pottery.

Offering contemporary and authentic Jewish cuisine in modern surroundings, Zest in London sits 3 minutes’ walk from Finchley Road & Frognal Overground Station.

    The food was excellent

  • ((((( 14 November 2015 by N Mayo from London

    The quality of the food and (Israeli) wine is unsurpassed. Greater selection of vegetarian main courses would be appreciated. Excellent service, but the restaurant lacks ambience and has the feel of an institution. Some outdoor planting (large native trees and hedging) would help improve the view!
