Latest critic review: January 14, 2013
Since reading a review of 10 Greek Street I have become a fan and have been four times and introduced friends to its delights as well.
Whilst none of the dishes are overly complicated, the focus on layers of flavour are knock out. Just starting with the bread, lovely onion and thyme as well as a judiciously salted rye bread give a clear indication of where the sights are aimed.
Perhaps it's Cameron Emirali background, but there's always squid or octopus as a starter, and wonderful they are. But also perfectly soused herring fillets or a terrine if you're more carnivorous.
However, the absolute best I had yesterday - shallot tatin. Roasted shallots in a thin pastry case, with burrata (acting as the traditional 'custard') with asparagus for a counter flavour and bitter rocket to bite through the burrata's richness - truly a masterpiece of flavour and texture combination.
Go - do not pass Go - just Go!
