‘The Greek Larder’ - NEW concept from Chef Theodore Kyriakou coming to King’s Cross soon.
Greek Chef Theodore Kyriakou along with fellow founder Panos Manuelides are to open a new Greek restaurant and food store concept in one of London’s fastest growing food scene areas, King’s Cross.
Set to open mid October 2014 the 80-100 seat site will be within the recently constructed Arthouse Site building, part of Argent’s new King’s Cross development. The restaurant looks out over the Regent’s canal and is within easy walking distance of Granary Square and Central St Martin’s College of Arts and Design.
Best known for launching ‘Livebait’ in 1995 and ‘The Real Greek’ in 1999, Theodore’s new concept will focus on food from Greek regions and the Eastern Mediterranean basin. The culinary history is unsurpassed, based on a fascinating mix of cultures. Theodore favours traditional recipes, some updated with a twist; Grilled trahana cake with crevettes, Cretan deep fried courgette flowers stuffed with feta, sprinkled with thyme honey and Pastourma with thyme yogurt cheese, together with a regional Meze offering, souvlaki, filo pies and sweets such as Manouri mousse with orange blossom honey and pistachios.
Open 7 days a week the distinctive menu will include relaxed breakfast and morning coffee, open all day restaurant with brunch selection at weekends. There will be a unique range of Greek wines to savour and even beer from a Santorinian micro brewery.
From the food store people will also be able to taste and buy a wonderful selection of Greek foods sourced from independent, hitherto little-known producers - including cheeses, charcuterie, olives, Cycladic honey, pulses, traditional sweets and delicacies: the best from small regional producers in Greece and its islands.
The Greek Larder currently has a holding page www.thegreeklarder.co.uk where people can sign up to a newsletter to keep up-to-date with developments and can also follow on Twitter @thegreeklarder for regular information.
The offering will include relaxed breakfast and morning coffees, an all-day a la carte menu in the week and brunch at the weekends. The 80-100 covers will be perfect for groups, parties, business lunches and meetings, sole working and relaxing or quite simply ‘dinner for two’.
The Greek Larder will form a key part of the new community in the architecturally inspiring ArtHouse site that defines the eastern edge of Argent’s King’s Cross development - bounded by York Way and overlooking the historic Regent’s Canal. The Greek Larder will be an impactful addition to the area’s increasingly sophisticated and vibrant food scene.
