Discover the Essence of Greece: Meraki Restaurant in Fitzrovia

Meraki restaurant, nestled in the vibrant heart of Fitzrovia, is a gastronomic gem that captures the essence of Greek and Mediterranean cuisine with flair and authenticity. The name ‘Meraki’ itself, a Greek term signifying the soul, creativity, or love put into something, aptly reflects the restaurant’s dedication to culinary excellence and an immersive dining experience.

At Meraki, the menu is a rich tapestry of flavours and textures, showcasing the best of Greek and Mediterranean traditions. Succulent chargrilled meats, seafood, chef’s specials and an array of mezze plates are crafted using the freshest ingredients, ensuring that every dish is a celebration of the Mediterranean. The culinary journey begins with Meraki’s signature spread platter of Greek style dips and homemade pitta bread, perfect for sharing. 

One of Meraki’s standout dishes is the baked sea bass – this dish epitomises the restaurant’s philosophy of enhancing natural flavours through simple, yet masterful cooking techniques. Encased in a crust of salt and baked to perfection, the sea bass is both visually stunning and a taste sensation, with the salt crust ensuring the fish remains moist and flavourful.

Other highlights include the Rosti Greek Style – while it may not be the most visually striking, trust us when we say that the plate will be spotless – imagine crispy potato, served with a sunny-side-up egg, layered with Cretan butter, and topped with black truffle. The traditional Mykonian salad is fresh and vibrant, and the lamb chops are accompanied by lighter sides like tzatziki and courgette. Don’t forget to save room for the spectacular Greek desserts, which are sure to impress. One of our favourites is the Traditional Bougatsa: a crispy phyllo pie with creamy semolina custard, drizzled with chocolate caramel sauce – dessert perfection.

The live theatre kitchen at Meraki is a centrepiece of your dining experience, offering guests the unique opportunity to watch the chefs at work. This open kitchen concept not only adds a dynamic element to the meal but also assures diners of the freshness and quality of the ingredients used.

Complementing the exquisite food, Meraki boasts an extensive wine list that features a curated selection of fine wines from Greece and other renowned European wine regions. Whether you prefer a robust red, a crisp white, or a refreshing rosé, the sommelier at Meraki is adept at recommending the perfect pairing to elevate your meal. The restaurant also prides itself on its expertly crafted cocktails, which are a delightful fusion of traditional Greek flavours with a modern twist. Signature cocktails like the Volcanic and the Terrace of the Lions are crafted with precision and creativity, offering not only exceptional taste but also stunning visual appeal.

Meraki’s ambiance is equally noteworthy, striking a balance between elegance and warmth. The stylish decor, with its Mediterranean-inspired elements and modern touches, creates a welcoming atmosphere that is perfect for both intimate dinners and larger gatherings. The attentive and knowledgeable staff further enhance the experience, providing impeccable service.

Whether you’re a Greek cuisine enthusiast or seeking a touch of Mediterranean sunshine in the capital, Meraki offers an unforgettable culinary journey that embodies the true spirit of the Mediterranean.
