Delamina is set to open on Marylebone Lane later this month; the second restaurant from husband-and-wife team Limor and Amir Chen, who are also behind Shoreditch’s Strut & Cluck, which they established in 2016 following a successful Shoreditch House pop-up.

Limor will be the driving force behind the menus at Delamina, drawing on her eclectic heritage — she was born in Tel Aviv to a family of Russian and Iranian origins — and inspired by her father who, during her childhood, was a passionate cook and exposed her to the myriad flavours, herbs and spices of the region. A self-taught chef, Limor’s intuitive approach to healthy eating results in vibrant flavour-forward dishes, driven by a commitment to fresh produce.

When the 80-cover Delamina opens this month, the menu is expected to feature dishes like charcoaled leeks with crumbled manouri, dried apricots, roasted hazelnuts and crispy capers, as well as charcoal-grilled ras-el-hanout and honey-glazed poussin, with roasted sweet potato and chermoula-glazed cod with Israeli cous cous, artichoke, wild za’atar and yoghurt. Sweet dishes will include a halva and roasted almond parfait with date syrup and tahini.

The food menu will be accompanied by an drinks list that includes little-known vintages of Israeli and Lebanese wines, alongside house cocktails that will incorporate the same aromatic herbs and spices used in the kitchen.
