The Real Greek, the authentic Eastern Mediterranean restaurant group, has launched its eighth restaurant in the UK.
The new 1,716 square foot site in based in London and becomes its seventh restaurant in the capital. Situated in Berwick Street, which is just off Oxford Street, the restaurant can serve 75 covers and will be run by the former boss of its Covent Garden property.
Christos Karatzenis, head of operations at The Real Greek, said: “Berwick Street is a foodie mecca for many Londoners — from the lively market to the huge mix of unique restaurants. It receives huge footfall from local office workers, tourists and shoppers, all of whom are seeking a laid back and sociable dining experience.
“Since the launch of the first The Real Greek in 1999, we have noticed there’s a real appetite for Eastern Mediterranean food, which is healthy and nutritious, and we have opened and continue to open our restaurants to accommodate this growing demand.”
The Real Greek group’s menu encompasses traditional hot and cold meze dishes, designed for sharing. Many ingredients used in the restaurant, such as wine and olive oil, are imported directly from Greece, and dishes are freshly prepared in-store in order to retain flavour and authenticity.
