Hellenic Republic | Kew
Lovers of Brunswick's gorgeous Greek tavern who happen to find themselves based out east will rejoice at this second outpost in Kew. Lauded chefs George Calombaris and Travis McAuley keep the focus on heartily traditional food with a unique contemporary twist, and banqueting is king.
A new menu features the likes of cuttlefish kalamaki with tarama aioli, and scampi bathed in garlic dashi butter. Thankfully they've also included chicken on the spit, with garlic, lemon and oregano, as well as wagyu and lamb shoulder—all looking particularly good in their refurbished fitout.
