Restaurant Property acted for Pagoni in securing the former Senor Ceviche site for Ampἑli.
Expected to launch in December, it will focus on Greek food whilst exploring food from the wider East Mediterranean region including Turkey, Morocco, Tunisia and Israel.
The drinks list will be solely Greek, reflecting Pagoni’s 'passion and knowledge'.
Head chef Oren Goldfeld has 'extensive' experience in Middle Eastern cooking having worked across Israel and mostly recently in the UK for Yotam Ottolenghi at Nopi, Neil Rankin, and the Brother Marcus Group.
Ampἑli is a Greek word meaning simply vineyard.
It will serve lunch, dinner and weekend brunch. The a la carte menu will be divided into small plates, there will be a meat, fish and grill section, and a 'social section' where guests are encouraged to 'share the course, not the plate'.
The site is 1,347 sq ft and comes with a rent of £110,000 per annum with a lease on assignment from Senor Ceviche that runs until 2032.
Nick Gross of hospitality consultancy LanburyHundred continues to act as Pagoni’s consultant on the project.
