On the first floor of Cargo 2 in Wapping Wharf, you will find The Athenian: a small but expert purveyor of authentic Greek street food. The company was founded by Efthymios and Neofytos; two Londoners born and raised in Athens and Cyprus, who were inspired to represent the traditional cuisine of their country in the UK. Following the launch of the London location in 2014, The Athenian made haste to Bristol with the aim of providing Greek food prepared in the healthiest way possible. Souvlaki is their speciality: plump for a delicious pitta wrap filled with herby grilled chicken or pork (halloumi-esque talagani cheese as a vegetarian alternative, or mushrooms as a vegan option) plus other classic ingredients, all traceable to their Greek roots. Also serving Greek salads, Cretan dakos, The Athenian sure succeeds in its aim of providing simple, tasty and honest food from a menu passionately designed and produced.
