This Notting Hill restaurant is run by chef/patron Rabah Ourrad, an Algerian rapper in Paris who used his time there to hone his culinary skills. He worked at Sketch, the Ledbury and Momo before starting Wormwood with his brother Akli. The menu here "spans the Mediterranean, but stands alone in its conformist refusal" so expect mezze/tapas with a French cooking flair.
"This food, with its radical but thoughtful fusion of north Africa and southern Spanish cuisines (which are already a divorced old couple), is accomplished, inventive, emotional. It’s made with the three graces of food: childhood memory, interpretation and appetite." READ REVIEW
