Small sharing plates are deceptively hard to prepare.

Every time we give them a go, they turn out really mezze.

But thankfully we can now stop trying, and instead simply tuck into the Aegean (Turkish & Greek) sharing plates being served up inside new Fitzrovian eating house, Firedog, which – proving it’s one big step ahead of the multiple-plate dining trend – has brought something new to the table.


Their signature feast comprises a cluster of sharer plates topped with treats like freshly made Lor cheese (with walnuts and thyme); candied pumpkin with hung yoghurt; and menemen (a comfort blend of peppers, tomato and scrambled eggs), all served up over two floors of warm, wood-panelled rooms spruced up with specially-commissioned graffiti murals and neon wall art.


However if you’re a little more protective when it comes to your food, then you’ll be glad to hear about the larger, single-person dishes on offer – each cooked up on an olive woodfired grill – like toasted brioche topped with chargrilled plums and honey & pistachios; plus lunch and dinner options like kofta burgers or sea bass with pickled cucumber and pomegranate…

….which, incidentally, perfectly complement Firedog’s soda with homemade pomegranate syrup; its Harissa Bloody Mary; and its draught beer brewed with Sumac and Za’atar.

Let the ‘multiple drinks’ trend commence.


NOTE: Firedog is open 8am-11pm on weekdays, 9-11pm on Saturdays and 9am-5pm on Sundays. It’s currently walk-ins only, so no need to book. You can find out more on Firedog’s website HERE.
