Theodore Kyriakou, the founder of Livebait and the Real Greek, is to open a new Greek restaurant in London's King's Cross.
The new venture, which is a mix of restaurant and food store, will be called the Greek Larder and is set to open in September this year.
The 80-100 seat site will be within the new Arthouse Site building, part of Argent's new King's Cross development. It looks out over the Regent's canal and is close to Granary Square and Central St Martin's College of Arts and Design.
Kyriakou launched Livebait in 1995 and The Real Greek in 1999. He and fellow co-founders of the Real Greek, Paloma Campbell and Mark Yates, sold the brand to Clapham House Group in 2004 when it had three sites.
Kyriakou's new concept will focus on food from Greek regions and the Eastern Mediterranean basin.
Dishes will include: grilled trahana cake with crevettes, Cretan deep fried courgette flowers stuffed with feta, sprinkled with thyme honey and Pastourma with thyme yogurt cheese, together with a regional Meze offering, souvlaki, filo pies and sweets such as Manouri mousse with orange blossom honey and pistachios.
It will be open seven days a week and will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, with a brunch selection at weekends.
