OUR STORY

Founders Theodore and Panos met while fishing under the temple of Poseidon, followed by many hours spent sailing in the Aegean, discussions about ingredients and the consumption of home roasted pistachios from Miss Valie (Panos’ mother).

A few years later the project to open The Greek Larder started to take form and led them to the new King’s Cross restaurant. Athens born Theodore, best known for launching ‘Livebait’ in 1995 and ‘The Real Greek’ in 1999, is an award winning chef who relishes the traditions and great skills handed down to him by his father and grandfather. With his innate sense of the Mediterranean, Theodore’s dishes are motivated by his love of herbs, the simple tastes of the land, the sunshine and the sea; the local indigenous flavors and produce from all over the Aegean.
