Locally well-known for his tenures at two of Dubai’s leading French restaurants, Le Petite Maison and La Serre, chef Izu Ani is the culinary mastermind behind Gaia - a homegrown dining concept, pictured. Discover authentic, wholesome Greek cuisine with a menu inspired by the Greek islands. The London outpost is opening in a multi-level space within the 1 Hotel Mayfair hotel. The restaurant houses a fish market complete with seafood bar, a cocktail bar and wine room as well as a private members club.
Expect plenty of seafood and simple yet flavoursome plates and as is the norm in Mediterranean culture, dishes are designed to be shared with family and friends, while the striking restaurant itself is homely and welcoming as a family-run Greek tavern - with trademark interiors of a light, muted colour palette with white painted woods and cream walls and stunning seafood bar. The London opening follows recent opening in Monaco.
