In addition to the restaurant, Itamar and Sarit have written two award-winning cook books – *Winners of the Jeremy Round Award for Best First Food Book at the Guild of Food Writers Awards* *Fortnum & Mason Food & Drink Awards Cookery Book of the Year 2015* *Sunday Times Food Book of the Year 2014*.

Great Portland Street is fast becoming a foodie destination with an eclectic mix of international restaurants, with Honey & Co joining Iberica, Villandry, Portland, and Wahaca to name but a few.
