The Athenian street food brand opens in Belgravia

Greek street food restaurant the Athenian has opened in London's Belgravia at Grosvenor's Elizabeth Street development.

The Athenian will serve Greek street food snacks, salads and meze dishes such as souvlaki, halloumi, pittas and dips using ingredients from small independent producers in both Greece and the UK.

Directors Efthymios Vasilakis and Neofytos Christodoulou founded the Athenian in 2014 as a street food stall. Since then the brand has opened restaurants in White City, Elephant & Castle, Shoreditch and Bristol.

The Elizabeth Street development is already home to the Thomas Cubitt pub, Peggy Porschen, Baker & Spice, and the Dominique Ansel Bakery.

Joanna Lea, retail director, Grosvenor Britain & Ireland, said: "Elizabeth Street is in a prime location to be able to provide an attractive offer for Londoners, and new independent brands like the Athenian will help to drive this vision further."

London property specialists Colliers International and Bruce Gillingham Pollard acted on behalf of Grosvenor to lease the unit.

Josh Leon, head of restaurants at Colliers International said: "This part of Belgravia continues to be in the spotlight and is set to make food and fashion headlines all through next year. "
