“Imaginative Greek dishes with a twist” earn high ratings this year for this two-year-old in Fitzrovia from Arjun and Peter Waney, who seem to have imbued Hellenic cooking with the trademark glamour and excitement they brought to Japanese with Zuma and Roka. The place is “always buzzing and packed”, and reporters reckon it’s “pricey but worth it” for “the best Greek meal I’ve ever eaten”.
This “beautiful” yearling is Arjun and Peter Waney’s stab at bringing their magic (Roka, Zuma, The Arts Club) to contemporary Greek cuisine, in the 100-cover Fitzrovia premises that some may remember as Efes (long RIP). Promising but a work-in-progress seems a fair summary of feedback: the vibe is “lively”, and the food can be “exceptional”, but reports often note it’s “very expensive” and the “charming but slightly haphazard service” can “be a bit too keen on the up-sell”.
Can the Waney family (the powerhouse behind Roka, Zuma and the Arts Club) bring their magic to contemporary Greek cuisine with this summer 2017 newcomer in Fitzrovia? A 100-cover venture boasting two al fresco terraces; the name is a Greek term that refers to the love and passion that someone puts into their work.
