The first proper restaurant from The Athenian street-food chain is a big beast within the creative hub of White City Place, serving its signature souvlaki wraps with salad, homemade sauces, dips and oregano fries alongside a whole host of new ideas.
More space means a bigger menu, so also expect bespoke Gyros burgers (made from shavings of marinated meat), courgette fritters, Santorini tomato and herb croquettes with Athenian sauce and dessert ‘treats’ such as flourless brownies. Vegan and gluten-free options sit beside their meaty cousins, and the restaurant also serves breakfast (try the wild boar sausage muffins). To drink, dip into the extended selection of Greek craft beers and regional wines. The Athenian also has café outlets in Victoria and Canary Wharf, plus a stall on Tooting Market and two Boxpark pitches (in Shoreditch and Wembley).
