Just off Carnaby Street on Newburgh Street, Pitta Bun will be reminiscent of a traditional souvlaki restaurant and will serve pitta breads with a seasonally changing many of fillings including charcoal slow cooked lamb shoulder and feta cheese; roasted potatoes with lemon-oregano sauce; and a variety of slow-cooked meats finished in a robata grill or caramelised on a rotisserie spit.
Sweet options will include the likes of butter and sugar coated pittas filled with ice cream and honey.
Drinks will include Greek wines and beers from selected microbreweries.
“Shaftesbury is delighted to welcome Pitta Bun to the Newburgh Quarter, Carnaby’s diverse and distinctive shopping, lifestyle and dining destination,” says Julia Wilkinson, group restaurant strategy executive for Shaftesbury.
“The new concept restaurant will join Ugly Dumpling and Antidote on Newburgh Street adding to the unique and experiential F&B Carnaby roster.”
As well as Opso in Marylebone, the Modern Greek Food Group also operates a restaurant in Athens called Funky Gourmet and a restaurant consultancy, Horeca.
Pitta Bun joins a number of other specialist souvlaki restaurants including Suvlaki, Hungry Donkey and The Athenian.
