10 Greek Street is a busy little European bistro in the heart of Soho, rightly regarded as one of Soho’s hidden gems. There’s a pared-back, ingredient-focused style that has become popular across London and the UK in the last decade - 10 Greek Street was at the very start of that movement when it opened in 2012, serving a daily-changing, seasonal menu that shows off great British produce in simple, comforting, approachable dishes.
The inside is just as unassuming. A black door on Greek Street gives way to a modest dining room that is all earth tones and neutral colours. A banquette lines one side of the room and the furniture is typically understated - wooden tables and chairs, herringbone floor, no tablecloths, and a blackboard displaying the menu of the day.
That menu sticks to easy going bistro cooking, and particularly shines a light on some classic British dishes. On the menu at the time of writing you’ll find devilled chicken livers on toast, for example, as well as a plate of smoked mackerel, beetroot, chicory and mustard, and a rhubarb, lemon and pistachio mess. There’s plenty of European influence on the menu too, visible in dishes like Marinda tomatoes with burrata, basil and capers, cod, chickpeas and romesco, and fennel sausage and ‘nduja pizza.
Alongside the oft-changing menu, 10 Greek Street has a varied and well-priced wine list, as well as a ‘little black book’ of finer rarities available by the bottle. There’s also a good range of other drinks including craft beers, digestifs, soft drinks and classic cocktails - the bar team will be only too happy to mix up a negroni, bellini, martini or old fashioned for you.
