The team behind Marylebone restaurant OPSO and the Athens based two Michelin-starred restaurant Funky Gourmet are converting their Pitta Bun venue in Soho into a new live-fire restaurant.

Called INO, the restaurant will open on 24 May and will be inspired by the dining culture of classic tavernas across Greece with a menu centred on the traditions of the Greek charcoal psistaria grill.

The 25-cover venue will be set across two levels with a custom-made grill and rotisserie the centerpiece of an open kitchen. Diners will be able to sit at a 13-seat counter bar or in the dining room as well as on an small outdoor seated terrace.

The launch menu feature small plates as well as those designed to be shared. Smaller plates will include charcoaled short rib chops; house cured mackerel; lamb sweetbreads skewers; catch of the day carpaccio; sardines; and sashimi with larger dishes such as secreto souvlaki with Iberico pork; and fish ‘cheeks’ with tomato and parsley salsa.

Derived from the ancient Greek word for wine, INO will have an entirely Greek wine list which is set to change frequently and which will focus on innovative Greek wineries.

Founders Andreas Labridis, Nikos Roussos and Georgianna Hiliadaki launched Greek restaurant OPSO in Marylebone in 2014 and followed this up with the opening of Pitta Bun on Newburgh Street in July 2018.

“Cooking over charcoal is a method which is close to our hearts and one which has been inextricably linked to Greek cuisine throughout the centuries,” they say.

“We are excited to introduce an elevated counter dining menu, which uses exceptional produce, showcasing authentic flavours of Greece. INO will be a place for people to gather around hearty food and share dishes that reflect our travels and our heritage using ingredients that excite us”.

“Greek wine is currently undergoing an exciting renaissance and I’m looking forward to introducing these new producers and their wines to London.”

Pitta Bun remains available online for delivery to selected postcodes across London, and the team say they hope to open a new site soon.
