SquareMeal Review of Meraki London

Bronze Award

The Waney family (Roka, Zuma) knows a thing or two about spotting the next big thing and this Fitzrovia newcomer impresses. The calming, neutral space features two separate entrances, each with its own alfresco terrace. Sweet and knowledgeable staff guide you through a menu of contemporary Greek dishes, alongside a sommelier to help you pick from a strong selection of Greek wines and cocktails made using citrus fruits from the island of Naxos. We started out with a selection of mezze, including crispy deep-fried calamari, cumin-spiced meatballs served swimming in rich tomato sauce, and rice-stuffed dolmades topped with fresh, creamy Greek yoghurt. Mains ramp up the indulgence with the likes of thick tagliatelle topped with supremely tender slow-cooked beef cheeks and graviera cheese from Crete. Our dish of creamy spaghetti with bursts of zingy lemon and bottarga from Mesologgi was on the rich side, but a delight nonetheless. Simple, yet effective desserts included a thick hazelnut praline encased in a snap-apart chocolate shell, which successfully contrasts with a dome of sour cherry sorbet. It’s yet to be seen whether Meraki can hold its own against the fierce competition in the area, but it’s certainly a solid choice for comfort-food seekers.

About Meraki London

Situated in the midst of bustling, foodie Fitzrovia you'll find the haven that is Meraki. The pared-back space features plush banquettes, exposed brick and elegant furnishings, where diners can enjoy elegant modern Greek dishes comprised of excellent seasonal ingredients. Opened by the Waney family of Zuma, Roka and La Petite Maison fame, Meraki has become well-known as a top destination for refined group dining. Greek cuisine lends itself to groups and Meraki is no exception, offering spreads, breads and dips alongside more a la carte-style options. 

For sipping on while perusing the menu, there are plenty of exciting cocktails to try at Meraki. The signature blends are themed around the Greek gods, so sample Olympian offerings like the Hades helm, made with Belvedere, passion fruit, pineapple, blood peach, lime and homemade chilli syrup. Beer drinkers can opt for the Mythos or Nissos, both classic Greek lagers, while purists can sample the extensive range of spirits. 

Any meal at Meraki is a feast, with plenty of options to ensure everyone can enjoy something to their liking. Start off with a basket of pita and choose from the range of staple Greek dips: taramosalata, tzatziki and Greek-style hummus. After the ripping and dipping starts to wrap up, tuck into various carpaccios and ceviches before the main event. Meraki is a restaurant that prides itself on its signatures, and it's not hard to see why. Enjoy classics like harissa-glazed beef fillet kebab, salt-crusted sea bass with wild horta and a thyme dressing or spring vegetable pasta with mint for veggies and vegans. Be sure to add a portion of Greek potato chips to your order, served with Aegean herbs and spicy feta cream.

Finish your lavish feast with the likes of a lemon and cinnamon tart with soft baked meringue and raspberry sorbet, or a saragli (rolled baklava).
