10 Greek Street 22

Squaremeal Review of 10 Greek Street ?

From the prosaic name to the determinedly plain decor, everything about this pint-sized Soho favourite is purely functional – apart from the food and wine, that is. The short, daily changing menu “always pleases”, pulling in ideas from Western Europe to point up its larder of British ingredients. You might find chicken hearts and livers with Brussels sprouts, Marsala and sage, Tamworth pork partnered with savoy cabbage and a scattering of soft pancetta or plump hake and spinach given extra bite with some dense chorizo. An all-day selection of smaller plates keeps things simple (think salted Padrón peppers, crumbed pig’s trotters or smoked mackerel with fennel), while adding some flashes of colour to the black-and-white room. You can reserve a table for lunch (“perfect”, says one fan), but dinner is no-bookings only: if you’re willing to queue, however, the wine list helps to spin out an evening with its brilliantly affordable selection from across the globe.

Great Value Wine List of the Year

On its own, the informal ‘main’ list for this Soho eatery is an impressive bit of work. Tightly chosen, it stuffs more good and interesting bottles into its 40 bins than many lists 10 times the size, with a terrific selection available either by the glass or half-bottle. Add to this the ever-changing selection of ‘fine wines’ – hand-written and snapped up in tiny quantities, and it’s a list that’s as innovative, informal and quirky as the clientele.

Good food, nice atmosphere

Not one for the fat-arsed corporate diners who get off on white tablecloths and deferential waiters – Yay! The food is excellent, great atmosphere and ridiculously well-priced wines! With that in mind, I can easily overlook the slightly cramped conditions and the no reservations policy.

Decent, but not outstanding.

Our first visit on a busy Saturday lunchtime today, and despite an early booking the place was very busy and very noisy by the time we left. The place is small and a bit cramped- truth to tell probably not quite enough space for the tables they have there, and thats not many. That aside the service was pretty good- not super-friendly- there wasn't really time for that- but certainly very polite and efficient. We had bread and water at the table within moments of sitting down , and whilst the pace...

I'm baffled why 10 Greek Street might be described as a ‘gem’, when it sits precisely half way along a line between Arbutus and La Giaconda, both of which have been doing exactly the same thing as this place for a number of years now, with far greater success. Indeed if anyone has a claim to be called a hidden gem of Soho's food circuit, it's La Giaconda which is more intimate and to my mind more foodie. The menu looks good on first glance, but when you are forced to choose, the options are somewhat...

When San Pellegrino anoints its 50 Best Restaurants In The World later in the month, it is a fair bet to assume that 10 Greek Street will not make the list. Good for them: this is one of the new group of places (Duck Soup, The Ten Cases etc.) springing up in Soho and Covent Garden that are not Michelin Star chasers, but want to provide good, honest cooking, in a pleasant atmosphere. And they succeed marvellously. That they take bookings was always going to make it a plus for me, as it meant that...
