10 Greek Street | Modern European Small Plates in Soho

As a wise person on Pinterest once said, ‘Be the change you wish to see in the world’.

However, if the changes you want to see are on a menu, it’ll save you a lot of time and laminating to simply head to 10 Greek Street instead; an unpretentious dining spot with a seasonal menu that’s different every day.

It comes from Aussie-raised chef Cameron Emirali, who came hot and fresh out the kitchens of The Wapping Project, and manager Luke Wilson, who cut his teeth at Exmouth Market’s The Ambassador. Together they run this intimate Soho spot with an interior that ticks off the holy trinity of understated restaurant design: white subway tiles, blackboard menus, and counter seating overlooking the open kitchen at the back of the restaurant.

10 Greek Street was at the vanguard of the small plates movement when it opened in 2012, and the menu still allows you to choose your own adventure by mixing large and small portions. The latter come in the form of British tapas with a seasonal edge; so while you’ll find stalwarts like smoked almonds, olives and garlic bread, there’s also more adventurous combinations like spiced lamb & mint pizza, or pigs cheeks with apple and cauliflower. The larger plates finish what the tapas started, with meatier dishes like Dexter beef with fried potatoes to share; octopus with samphire & mojo rojo; and polenta with molten taleggio cheese and truffle. And you can cap it all off with some elevated, old-school desserts like pistachio cake with Yorkshire rhubarb, or white chocolate & stem ginger ice cream.

As for drinks, wine takes centre stage at 10 Greek Street. There’s a well-chosen wine list (with glasses starting at a fiver), but if you’re keen to dig deeper, ask for the ‘little black book’, a handwritten selection of rarer bottles and by-the-glass options (more in the region of £10-20). If you’re not a fan of the old grape hooch however, you’ll also find craft beers from Braybrooke in Leicestershire, and a succinct list of well-made classic cocktails, including negronis and Tommy’s margaritas.

Because some things don’t need changing.


NOTE: 10 Greek Street is open for lunch and dinner, Tues-Sat: you can find out more, and make a reservation, HERE.
