Where to Eat: Greek Food in London

31 May 2019 | Billie Manning

Spotlight On: Suzi Tros
In case you didn’t know, the Greeks are the inventors of a lot of good stuff: democracy, the basics of the philosophies we follow today, tzatziki. And if you’re a fan of that last one in particular, then boy do we have a treat for you. Suzi Tros (meaning Suzi, you eat in Greek) is a new Greek restaurant opening in the heart of Notting Hill run by Adrien Carre and Christina Mouratoglou. The pair have already found success with their restaurant Mazi, just two doors down from their new opening, which will be inspired by Mouratoglou’s hometown, Thessaloniki.
 
There will be a focus on small plates, and a large charcoal grill in the centre of the restaurant will be responsible for most of the dishes, from whole grilled calamari to whole grilled and smoked aubergine. If you fancy something lighter, there’ll be raw crayfish tartare, sea urchin and bonito carpaccio. We’re itching to try the tantalisingly-named ‘Grandmama’s Meatballs’. To wash it all down, Greek spirits like Tsipouro and Mastika will be on-hand either upstairs in the restaurant, or downstairs, where there will be an intimate bar area.

The Athenian
