Mediterranean-inspired Ottolenghi sort of defies categorization: Their four locations differ slightly in their offerings, but they all feature some level of sit-down dining, a deli with pre-made takeout, and excellent catering. Don’t be surprised to find a line no matter what time you arrive, but know that it’s worth the wait for their near-perfect pastries, quiches, and salads. If you don’t have time to cook before a dinner party, it’s an excellent pick for a meal that you can pick up and bring home.
