Cult pita restaurant Miznon to open follow up ‘kiosk’ in Notting Hill


Soho restaurant known for stuffing its signature pitas with everything from spaghetti bolognese to cottage pie will open a new outpost in Notting Hill next month.

Miznon, which first launched in Tel Aviv in 2011, has now spread to six cities around the world, launching its inaugural London site in July this year.

It will follow up on the success of that launch by expanding to west London, opening a “kiosk” (“miznon” is the Hebrew word for kiosk) on the corner of Elgin Street in W11.

Pitas exclusive to the English capital will lead the menu — filled with fish and chips, cottage pie, or an all-day English breakfast — alongside some of its established favourites, such as the whole-roasted baby cauliflower filling.


Eyal Shani, founder of Miznon, said: “When we first launched Miznon in Soho, it was inspired by English cuisine, fused with the Mediterranean pita experience. After opening four months ago, I found myself further inspired by London, its people and its neighbourhoods. Each a fountain of inspiration, so different from one another.

“And now Notting Hill, with its mysterious streets and eccentric people — there are no two ingredients more seductive or attractive than that to create new pitas for the world.”

Shani opened his first restaurant, Oceanus, in Jerusalem in 1989. Later, he opened a fine dining restaurant, Hasalon, in Tel Aviv, before going on to helm 40 restaurants around the world alongside partner Shahar Segal. Shani has also appeared as the judge on Israeli version of MasterChef.
