15 January from 8am
We’re waiting in anticipation for the arrival of Oklava, the new bakery and wine bar from Selin Kiazim and Laura Christie in Fitzrovia next week. Specialising in Turkish dishes and wine from the Black Sea region the restaurant will be open all day for breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as brunch on Saturdays. Excitingly, for the opening on Wednesday 15 January they will be giving away a coffee and a pastry to the first 100 people through the doors – so hurry and you could land a free breakfast of a Pogaca Morning Bun (a halloumi and olive oil muffin), a Tahini Spiral, a Pilavuna Pastry (with cheese, sultanas and mint) or a Zeytinli (a muffin made with olive and olive oil). Doors open at 8am. The restaurant will then be on soft launch from 15 – 18 January with 50% off lunch and dinner. Reservations are now open, and the menu will include the Tepsi Kebab – a combination of spiced beef and lamb baked kofte, yogurt and brown butter, with house bread and chopped salad and Mücver – Potato, Pastirma & Cheese Fritters. We’ll report back.
