SquareMeal Review of
The Greek Larder
Theodore Kyriakou has been responsible for many of the innovations in London’s Greek dining scene, dating from his opening of The Real Greek in 1999 (and he also co-founded Livebait). His latest venture incorporates a food store and sizeable restaurant, focusing on regional Greek produce from independent suppliers and updated traditional recipes. The venue – located in the spanking new ArtHouse site in King’s Cross, overlooking the Regent’s Canal – is open throughout the day, starting with breakfast and weekend brunch. A la carte offerings range from a regional meze, and traditional favourites such as souvlaki and filo pies, to the likes of grilled trahana cake with crevettes, Cretan deep-fried courgette flowers stuffed with feta and sprinkled with thyme honey, and pastourma with thyme yoghurt cheese. To finish, try the manouri mousse with orange blossom honey and pistachios.
