10 Greek Street is a little gem. It’s small, very personable and leaves any pretentiousness at the door and probably over on Dean Street. It’s a Soho classic that’s loved by critics and foodies, and thankfully it’s managed to survive lockdown, with head chef and co-owner Cameron Emirali coming out of it with a new seasonal pizza section on the menu.

The cosiness, the ever-changing menu, the wines and the counter spot for when you want to get chatty are all still there, and even being in the middle of a pandemic doesn’t stop people wanting to get in on 10 Greek Street as we drop in on a full house.

Whilst deliberating over the menu, garlic and chilli bread arrived with a trio of smoked Jerusalem artichoke, cod’s roe and aubergine dips – needless to say they didn’t stick around long. Diving into the small plates, the sardine and mussel escabeche was packed with flavour, and the quail with sweetcorn and n’djua mayonnaise was a match made in heaven – top tip, save some of the mayo for the side of roasties.

After a refresh on the Negronis and Nyetimbers, we went onto the pizzas – the sausage, chilli, sprouting broccoli and buffalo mozzarella was our fave. The base was light and crisp, with beer from their own brewery, Braybrooke Beer Co. added to the dough to enhance the flavour. There may only be a handful of pizzas on the menu but there are enough exciting topping combinations to satisfy any pizza cravings.

10 Greek Street is always going to be good but the new pizza additions mean you can pop in for a quick pit stop at any time of day, support a Soho legend, and be in and out pre-curfew.
