Kosher restaurant and bar prepares to open in Belsize Park

Contemporary kosher restaurant and bar Tish is opening later this month, offering an all-day menu of European cuisine and featuring Jewish heritage family favourites.

With a capacity of 160, Tish comprises a dining room, bar and alfresco terrace. As it has a late license, guests will be welcome to enjoy food and drinks from 7am until past midnight.

Opening this restaurant has been owner David S Levin’s dream since childhood. He grew up cooking for family and friends and has been honing his restaurant vision for years.

The tone of the dining room is set by the soaring 15-foot ceiling, mint green wood panelled walls, and a cream and green checkerboard terrazzo flooring. The bar features an Brazilian quartzite top, hand-selected in Verona, Italy.

An open kitchen will showcase the team of chefs at work under a dramatic giant copper canopy.

There will also be a large outdoor terrace, complete with playful patterned seating, parasols and heaters

The dairy free menu will offer modern classics and seasonal new dishes alongside Jewish heritage favourites. Breakfast will include Challah French toast with pear compote and maple syrup or fresh fruits, pomegranate and citrus fruit salad with mint and Acacia honey, and crepes served with fruit compote.

Examples from the lunch and dinner menu include Tish Hungarian bean soup, dry-aged rib eye steak with truffle chips and field mushrooms, and Tish Chicken schnitzel with roasted fingerling potatoes, peppers and caper berries. A wide selection of fresh salads and sandwiches will also be available.

Tish’s extensive drinks list offers many wines not previously available in the UK as well as new cocktail menu including the Belsize Spritz, a blend of gin, Aperol, cassis, jasmine, grapefruit soda and The President, a mix of dark rum, overproof rum, falernum and Angostura bitters.

Guests can also enjoy coffee and a wide range of fruit juices squeezed to order. A variety of cakes and small plates can be ordered alongside drinks.

Shabbat, the Jewish day of rest and celebration will be observed at Tish, with special prix-fixe Friday Night Dinners and Saturday Lunches open to all.
